Iowa Hawkeyes vs. Maryland Terrapins: TV, stream, broadcast details for Saturday
After dispatching of seventh-seeded Purdue yesterday, Iowa (24-6, 15-3 Big Ten) battles No. 3 seed Maryland today with a spot in the Big Ten Tournament championship game on the line.
Of course, the Hawkeyes are looking to return and defend their Big Ten Tournament crown from a season ago. Iowa got challenged by the Boilermakers, but a 7-0 spurt toward the close of the third quarter and 10 quick points from Caitlin Clark in the fourth quarter’s first four and a half minutes helped the Hawkeyes separate.
Clark finished with 22 points, Monika Czinano added 14 and Gabbie Marshall also scored 11. Marshall connected on 3-of-5 3-pointers in the contest versus Purdue.
Iowa split its regular season series versus Maryland, topping the Terrapins in Iowa City back on Feb. 2 as Clark and Czinano had one of their best combined performances of the season. The duo racked up an astounding 70 combined points, including 42 from Clark on 6-of-11 3-point shooting.
Maryland reversed the scales when Iowa went to College Park, though. The Terps outscored Iowa 27-8 in the second quarter and the blowout was on from there. Maryland handed Iowa its worst loss this season, 96-68.
A series of things went wrong during that Feb. 21 rematch. Iowa didn’t shoot it well for starters. The Hawkeyes finished shooting 34.8% from the floor and just 28.9% from 3-point range. Iowa kept firing from downtown despite the poor shooting, finishing 11-of-38 from long distance.
The Hawkeyes also turned the basketball over 24 times. With all of that in mind, Iowa is looking to exact a bit of revenge and recreate the version of itself that won comfortably in the pair’s first meeting this season.
If Iowa works its way past Maryland, it just might be a rematch of the Big Ten Tournament title bout from a season ago in Indiana.
The top-seeded Hoosiers beat Michigan State 94-85 behind 27 points from star forward Mackenzie Holmes. Indiana will face Ohio State at 1:30 p.m. The Buckeyes slipped past Michigan, 81-79.
