The Iowa Hawkeyes have a centrepiece in Caitlin Clark. While the immaculate No. 22 did make 27 points and 15 assists in their game against Penn State, she was, however, not the highlight this time. In fact, her teammate Hannah Stuelke got the limelight, and for the right reasons. The 6 ft 2 inch forward bagged a mind-boggling 47 points in their last match.

Caitlin Clark also did not disappoint fans either, as the dominant scorer contributed 27 points to the team. But, Hannah did shine the brightest tonight.

This was the second time that another Hawkeye left Caitlin behind on the scoring board. Hannah made her second career-high tonight with an incredible 47 points in her basket, with 17 of 20 shootings. Further, she has been an integral part of Iowa since the graduation of Monika Czinano. She has made decent entries into the team’s totals with an average of 12.7 points and a 61.2% field goal accuracy per game.

Additionally, with tonight’s game, she becomes the third Big Ten player to go over 40 points this season. To add more to this, the matchup against Penn State was Iowa’s seventh time in the season where they scored more than 100 points. Undeniably, if Hannah Stuelke and Caitlin Clark stay on track and keep scoring like this for Iowa, they would be heading straight for the title game once again.

Caitlin controls Penn State throughout the game

Unquestionably, it was not the first time that we saw Iowa completely controlling the field. Thanks to their coach, Lisa Bluder, who lets their stark player Caitlin Clark dominate the floor at her own pace. With 27 points, 15 assists, 12 turnovers, and 5 rebounds, the scoreboard leader of the Hawkeyes is already creating history. Further, after tonight’s game, she is only 39 points away from breaking Kelsey Plum’s 2017 all-time scoring record.

While in most of the matches on Iowa’s end, fans have only viewed Caitlin Clark as their sole scorer. However, it was a new day for the Hawkeyes as Hannah Stuelke overshadowed Caitlin and struck all the right chords for the team. Next, Iowa will travel to Nebraska for their next conference matchup.

One take at a time

“Spirit of life lies in expression”. As a boy-next-door growing up in the mystic vibes of Ajmer, I would often wonder about the towering ballers’ ability to forge unity for a common goal. Big guys watching each other’s back and creating brouhaha and belligerence for the glory was a tempting feeling.
