14 three-pointers help Hawkeye women down Mississippi Valley State

Posted:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

The Hawkeye women drained a record 14 three-pointers on Thursday night en route to an 86-80 win over Mississippi Valley State.

The Hawks watched a 22-point lead disappear in the second half, but held on to get their eighth win of the season.

In the first half, the Hawkeyes shot 54.5% from the floor and drained 10 three-pointers.  The second half was a different story.  Iowa only made seven shots from the floor, with four of those being three-pointers.

When it was all said and done, the Hawkeyes finished with a 38.5% field goal percentage and shot 40% from three-point range.  They also out rebounded Mississippi Valley, 38-31, and forced 24 Devilette turnovers.

MVSU shot 58.9% from the floor and 57.9% from beyond the arch.

Linn Mar's Jamie Printy led the Hawkeyes with 22 points, four rebounds and four assists.  Samantha Logic had 15 points and five rebounds and Kamille Wahlin added 14 points and seven assists.  All five Hawkeye starters finished in double figures.

Iowa's 14 three-pointers not only broke the school record, it is tied for the most in Carver-Hawkeye Arena history.  UNI hit 14 against the Hawkeyes on December 19, 2006.

The Hawkeye women are off until December 30 when they host Northwestern at 6:00 p.m. to open Big Ten play.
