Photos: NCAA second-round women’s basketball press conferences
The NCAA held second-round pregame press conferences for the Iowa No. 2 and Creighton No. 10 Saturday at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
Carver-Hawkeye Arena hosts its third consecutive sold-out game Sunday at noon against the Bluejays and Hawkeyes, who will battle for a spot in the Sweet Sixteen.
In Iowa’s first-round game against No. 15 Illinois State, Iowa guard Caitlin Clark led the Hawkeyes in points with 27, with Czinano in second with 18. Clark said that She was hoping to pass the ball to Czinano in tomorrow’s game. “I think we’ll have an inside advantage,” Clark said. “I think every game because Monika is the best position in the country.”
Iowa guard and former Hawkeye in the 2020-21 season Lauren Jensen will play against former teammates in the game. Jensen entered the Transfer Portal last spring and is averaging 12.4 points per game.
“It could be a real track meet tomorrow,” Iowa head coach Lisa Bluder said.
