It should come as no surprise that the Iowa Hawkeyes women’s basketball team is receiving some national notoriety after their impressive campaign in the 2021-22 season. In an incredible showing from the fans, the Iowa women have come in with the No. 3 best attendance in the nation.

The ladies put on a quality show all year and had Carver-Hawkeye Arena often selling out in an effort to become a raucous environment for opponents to venture into.
Last season saw them finish the regular season with a share of the Big Ten championship with a 24-8 (14-4 Big Ten) record. They went on to run the table in the Big Ten Tournament and took home the championship with a 74-67 win over Indiana. That was good enough for a No. 2 seed and hosting rights in the 2022 NCAA Tournament.
Led by guard Caitlin Clark who averaged 27 points per game, they put on an offensive firework show with barrages of points. The Hawkeyes averaged just a touch over 84 points per game, the second-best in the nation. Clark’s 27 points per game led the nation. She also led the country with eight assists per game and finished with 257.
With Clark returning and the Hawkeyes looking for revenge after an unexpected loss to Creighton in the tournament, it can be expected that the fireworks continue, both on the court and in the stands as Hawkeye fans will continue to show out for their ladies.
