Iowa Hawkeyes vs. Michigan Wolverines: Stream, game notes for Thursday

Caitlin Clark is set to make history on Thursday night.

Sitting just seven points away from tying and eight points away from breaking former Washington Huskies guard Kelsey Plum’s record, Clark is going to become the all-time women’s college basketball scoring leader on Thursday night.

Another sellout crowd will be on hand inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena excited to watch Clark make history. With history within reach, secondary ticket prices have been soaring.

As fans eagerly await Clark’s piece of individual history, Hawkeye fans are also excited to see this team bounce back from a frustrating finish in Lincoln, Neb.

Iowa (22-3, 11-2 Big Ten) coughed up a 14-point lead entering the fourth quarter as Clark was held scoreless in a fourth quarter for the first time in her Hawkeye career.

Nebraska (16-9, 8-6 Big Ten) outscored Iowa in the fourth quarter 27-10 as the Huskers’ Jaz Shelley hit the go-ahead 3-point basket inside the game’s final minute. Iowa fell at Nebraska, 82-79, in a shocker.

Now, the Hawkeyes welcome in Michigan (16-9, 7-6 Big Ten). The Wolverines enter after an 86-58 win over Rutgers on Saturday. Forward Cameron Williams led the way for Michigan with 23 points on 10-of-14 shooting.

Here’s how Hawkeye fans can watch, stream and listen to history tonight.
