Record win for Hawk women

The Iowa Hawkeye women’s basketball team started in 1974, which was also my first year of being a student at Iowa.
I don’t remember going to many games and the Hawkeyes didn’t have a winning season until 1978-79, when they finished 18-11.
Vivian Stringer came on the scene in 1983 and she helped turn Iowa into a national power.
When Lisa Bluder came on board in 2000 she promised an up-tempo game and balanced scoring.
The Hawk women opened up the weekend with the best scoring output ever in the history of Iowa women’s basketball with a 107-56 romp over USC Upstate.
They finished the weekend Sunday afternoon beating Robert Morris, 85-67.
I’ve been waiting for Kali Peschel to break out for a big game.
I’ve watched Kali in Game Time score 25 points in one game and grab 19 rebounds in another.
Sunday, Kali had a career-high 19 points to go along with eight rebounds in 19 minutes against Robert Morris, which trailed Iowa 42-31 at half.
Melissa Dixon was 6-11 in 3-pointers, joined the 1,000 point club and finished with 21 while Samantha Logic had 14 rebounds and 11 assists.
The game Friday night saw Iowa jump out early and never look back.
One of the fun parts of sitting under the Hawkeye basket and taking pictures is you get to see the fast break unfold.
The Hawks outscored USC 22-0 in fast break points.
Iowa had 27 assists, led by Samantha Logic with seven followed by Whitney Jennings and Ally Disterhoft with five.
Five players in double-figures is a nice way to start the season.
