IOWA CITY — It was another record setting day in Iowa City on Sunday that ended with a victory for the 6th-ranked Iowa Hawkeye women. Caitlin Clark finished with 35 points and nine assists as the Hawkeyes led nearly the entire way in a 93-83 win over 2nd-ranked and Big Ten regular season champion Ohio State, capping an emotional Senior Day.

Clark surpassed Pete Maravich to become the all-time scoring leader in major college basketball with a free throw just prior to halftime.

It was a regular season finale that included another national television audience, a sold out crowd and several celebrities sitting courtside.

The Hawkeyes finish the regular season 15-3 in the Big Ten and 26-4 overall. Iowa will be second seed in the Big Ten Tournament in the Twin Cities and will have their first game in the quarterfinals on Friday evening.

It will not be the final home game for the Hawkeyes who are expected to host the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament.

The Hawkeyes and Buckeyes could meet again next weekend.

That’s Iowa coach Lisa Bluder who feels Clark becoming the all-time women’s scoring record holder was more significant.

Iowa will face the winner of Thursday’s Wisconsin and Penn State game.
