DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Caitlin Clark scored 38 points and reached No. 9 on the all-time scoring list as No. 4 Iowa beat Cleveland State 104-75 on Saturday in the nightcap of a men’s-women’s doubleheader at Wells Fargo Arena.

Hannah Stuelke contributed 17 points for the Hawkeyes (11-1) and grabbed 13 rebounds.

The loss snapped Cleveland State’s nine-game winning streak. Mickayla Perdue led the Vikings (9-2) with 24 points.

Stuelke came off the bench and gave Iowa balance, establishing an offensive presence in the post and scoring 13 points in the first half.

With a basket in the third quarter, Clark moved past former Iowa State player Ashley Joens for No. 9 on the all-time scoring list. Joens finished her college career last season with 3,060 points. Clark’s career total is now 3,079.




DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Owen Freeman recorded a double-double and scored 14 and grabbed 11 rebounds and Iowa was never threatened in an 88-54 win over Florida A&M on Saturday.

Payton Sandfort scored 13 points, Tony Perkins 12 and reserve Brock Harding 10 for Iowa (6-5). Iowa had 12 players enter the scoring column. The Hawkeyes ended their three-game losing streak in which Iowa allowed an average of 90 points per game.

Iowa coach Fran McCaffery is five wins from becoming the winningest coach in Iowa basketball history, behind only Tom Davis, who won 271 games as Iowa’s head coach. With his next Big Ten victory, McCaffery will also have the most league wins (127) in program history.

Iowa hosts Maryland-Baltimore County on Wednesday night.




AMES, Iowa (AP) — Tamin Lipsey scored 19 points, Tre King added 18 points and 10 rebounds to help Iowa State beat Florida A&M 96-58 Sunday.

Lipsey hit a career-high five 3-pointers and King made 8 of 11 from the field. Milan Momcilovic scored 14 points, Jackson Paveletzke 13 and Keshon Gilbert 10 for Iowa State (9-2).

Iowa State continues its five-game home stand Thursday against Eastern Illinois.





AMES — Iowa State guard Emily Ryan saw her first action of the season in the Cyclones’ 105-68 win over Troy. The All-Big 12 standout had missed the first nine games due to what was called a medical issue. She finished with five points in nine minutes of action.

That’s ISU coach Bill Fennelly who says the decision to play Ryan was made a few days ago.

Iowa State is 6-4 and will host Northern Iowa on Wednesday.





CEDAR FALLS — The Northern Iowa men scored 62 points in the opening half and beat Alcorn State 100-82 on Sunday in Cedar Falls as the Panthers improve to 5-7.

That is Panther coach Ben Jacobson who was not surprised Alcorn State made it a game in the second half.

Jacobson says the Panthers still have a long way to go on defense.

Northern Iowa travels to Northern Illinois on Thursday





MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Karl-Anthony Towns scored a season-high 40 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, Anthony Edwards scored 37 points and the Minnesota Timberwolves pulled away in the second half to dominate short-handed Indiana 127-109 Saturday. Naz Reid added 17 points for Minnesota, now 11-1 at home and tied with Boston for the league’s best record at 19-5. Bruce Brown and Aaron Nesmith led the Pacers with 17 points. Playing its third road game in four nights, Indiana was without top scorer Tyrese Haliburton, who sustained a bruised left knee in Friday’s loss at Washington.




CINCINNATI (AP) — Tee Higgins made a savvy goal-line move to score a touchdown and force overtime and Evan McPherson made a 29-yard field goal to seal a 27-24 victory for Cincinnati over the Minnesota Vikings, keeping the Bengals’ playoff hopes alive even with star quarterback Joe Burrow out for the season. Higgins caught a 21-yard pass from Jake Browning with under a minute remaining and pulled off an acrobatic move to stretch the ball over the goal line and tie the game. In overtime, a 44-yard catch by Tyler Boyd helped set up a chip shot from McPherson.
