Hawks' Samantha Logic named Big Ten Women's Player of the Week

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -
University of Iowa junior guard Samantha Logic has been named Big Ten Player of Week for the third time this season, the conference office announced Tuesday.
 
"Sam contributes in so many ways that sometimes you do not even recognize how well she is playing" said UI head coach Lisa Bluder, who became the all-time winningest coach in program history (270 wins) following Iowa's win on Monday night over Northwestern. "You look at the stat sheet after the game, and you are amazed. She is consistently putting up amazing numbers; this is not a one-time thing, it is every single night.
 
"Sam is also able to do the little things, and has a mindset of ‘what can I do to help the team win' that makes her a great player," Bluder added.
 
Logic (5-foot-9) -- the Big Ten leader in assists (7.4/game) -- nearly averaged a triple-double in Iowa's two wins last week, averaging 17 points, 10 assists and 9.5 rebounds.
 
In the Hawkeyes' win at No. 9 Penn State on Feb. 6, Logic posted her second triple-double of the year, and the third of her career, with 14 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists. She has the most triple-doubles of any player in program history, and the most of any player in the Big Ten.
 
Logic, who ranks fourth nationally in assists, finished two rebounds shy of her second-straight triple-double in Iowa's win over Northwestern on Feb. 10, registering her 21st career double-double (20 points, 10 assists).

She finished 7-of-7 from the foul line, as Bluder won her 270th career game at Iowa, surpassing C. Vivian Stringer as the all-time winningest coach in program history.
 
The Racine, Wis., native, 1-of-2 juniors named preseason All-Big Ten, has 14 career games with double-digit assists -- the most in program history. She ranks second in career assists at Iowa (539).
 
The award marks Logic's fifth career Player of the Week honor, and third this season (Nov. 12, Dec. 23). Logic has been named to the Big Ten Player of the Week Honor Roll four additional times this season.
 
Iowa (19-6, 7-4) has won 7-of-9 overall. The Hawkeyes return to action Thursday, hosting Illinois at 8 p.m. (CT) on Mediacom Court at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.  Iowa then plays at No. 25 Purdue on Sunday (1 p.m. CT).
