MADISON, Wis. - Iowa has now won two dozen straight games (24) against Wisconsin after beating the Badgers 84-70 on Sunday afternoon at Kohl Center.
Gabbie Marshall had a season-high 19 points, which included hitting 5-of-6 on 3-pointers.
'I've been in a little shooting slump lately,” Marshall told hawkeyesports.com. 'My teammates knew I was hot, and they were finding me and making the right pass.”
Passing was great for Iowa (14-7, 10-7 Big Ten), with 22 assists on 29 baskets.
Freshman point guard Caitlin Clark had 14 assists to go with 18 points, her seventh double-double of the season. She also broke the freshman assists record (149), previously held by Kathleen Doyle (148).
'We had multiple people in double figures, which is always a good sign for us,” Clark said. 'That's when we play our best basketball.”
Monika Czinano had 18 points and McKenna Warnock added 14 points.
Wisconsin (5-17, 2-17) led a 18-17 after the first quarter, and the game was tied 24-24 midway through he second quarter when Iowa closed with a 16-6 run. That included a 3-pointer by Clark with two seconds left.
The Badgers cut the Iowa lead to four, 47-43, in the third quarter, but the Hawkeyes responded with an 11-3 run.
'I'm happy with the road victory,” Iowa Coach Lisa Bluder said. 'They're not easy to come by.”

'We have a little momentum right now,” Bluder said. 'We're more confident as the season has gone along.”
