Women’s College Basketball: Iowa 108, Illinois 72

IOWA CITY – Iowa picked up an easy Big Ten Conference victory Tuesday, walloping Illinois 108-72.

The Hawkeyes have won 28 consecutive home games, ranking third in the country behind Baylor and UConn. Iowa’s 108-72 win over Illinois broke the program scoring record that was set during the 2014 season.

Former Mason City Mohawk Mackenzie Meyer shot 5-10 from the field and poured in 15 points for Iowa – she only attempted three-pointers.  She also had 4 rebounds and 2 assists.

Senior Amanda Ollinger recorded her first career double-double, scoring 12 and rebounding 14.

Senior Kathleen Doyle scored a career high 33 points in 26 minutes, the most points by a Hawkeye since Megan Gustafson scored 45 against Maryland (March 10, 2019) in the Big Ten Championship.

Iowa tallied 34 total assists on 39 made shots, breaking the Big Ten opponent record.

Freshman Gabbie Marshall added six assists for the Hawkeyes, earning a new career high.

Iowa next heads to Evanston, Illinois, to take on the Northwestern Wildcats at Welsh-Ryan Arena on Jan. 5, 2020. Tip-off is set for 1 p.m. (CT), and the game will be broadcast on BTN.
