IOWA CITY – The No. 21 Iowa Hawkeyes defeated Evansville, 93-56, inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena in Iowa City, Iowa.

Sophomore Caitlin Clark tallied five points with 5:04 left in the first quarter, breaking the 1,000-point barrier — the fastest Big Ten women’s basketball athlete and the eighth NCAA athlete to the mile marker in 40 games or less. Ohio State’s Kelsey Mitchell previously held the record with 1,000 in 41 games during the 2016-17 season. She is only the second NCAA athlete in the last 25 years to tally 1,000 points in 40 games or less — Delaware’s Elena Delle Donne did it in 38 games (2011-12).

Freshman Addison O’Grady recorded her first career double-double, knocking down 14 points and pulling in 12 rebounds.

Clark set her career and the Carver-Hawkeye arena record with 44 points – the previous record was set by Amy Harrig with 42 points against Northwestern on Jan. 14, 1999. Her 18 made baskets is also a Carver-Hawkeye Arena record. Senior Monika Czinano previous registered the record with 17 against Northwestern on Jan. 28, 2021 – Megan Gustafson and Amy Harrig also recorded 17 in a game during their careers.

Seniors Tomi Taiwo and Logan Cook made their first career starts.

Up Next: Iowa returns to Big Ten play as it hosts Northwestern on Thursday, Jan. 30 inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. (CT) on B1G Network.
