Hawk women drop Michigan State for 12th win

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- Coming off a narrow defeat at the hands of Big Ten Conference-leading Ohio State, the University of Iowa returned home to take on Michigan State at Carver-Hawkeye Arena on Sunday. The loss to the Buckeyes broke the Hawkeyes three-game winning streak, but they got back on track against the Spartans, prevailing, 77-66, and breaking Michigan State's own four-game winning streak.

Iowa moved to 12-11 overall (5-7 Big Ten) with the victory, and has won four of its last five games.

Iowa's scoring was extremely balanced. All five starters managed to record double-digit points. Kachine Alexander led the Hawkeyes in scoring with 23 points.

Alexander recorded her 10th double-double of the season after adding 10 rebounds to her point total.

"Kash did a great job of getting to the free throw line and putting those free throws down," said UI head coach Lisa Bluder.

Alexander was 12 of 14 from the charity stripe, with all but one of those attempts coming in the second half.

Kamille Wahlin, Kelly Krei, Jaime Printy, and Morgan Johnson followed in the UI scoring column with 14, 14, 11 and 10, respectively.
