INDIANAPOLIS – Newly-crowned Big Ten Freshman of the Year Caitlin Clark had an uncharacteristic first quarter, going 0-for-6 in her first six field goal attempts.

But she returned to form in the last seconds of the first quarter, hitting a one-footed 3-point shot at the buzzer to give Iowa the lead after ten minutes, 17-15.

Junior center Monika Czinano was the star of the first quarter, going 5-for-5 from the field for 10 points for the Hawkeyes.
