IOWA CITY — Iowa coach Fran McCaffery expects freshman point guard Jordan Bohannon to handle Thursday’s game at 22nd ranked Wisconsin like any other road game. Bohannon will be trying to knock off the Badgers after spending several years traveling to the Kohl Center to cheer for two of his brothers who played for Wisconsin. Bohannon connected on eight three pointers in the Hawkeyes upset win at 24th ranked Maryland this past weekend. McCaffery says the Badgers are tough at home no matter what the circumstances. McCaffery says the Badger’s strength is their balance and not just on offense. You can hear the Iowa-Wisconsin game on AM-1300 KGLO starting at 7 o’clock with the pre-game, with the tipoff scheduled for 8 o’clock.
IRVING, Texas – The Iowa State women’s basketball team had three players honored when the 2016-17 All-Big 12 awards were announced with sophomore Bridget Carleton a unanimous selection to the All-Big 12 first team, while senior guard Seanna Johnson and redshirt junior Jadda Buckley earned honorable mention honors.
Carleton, a Chatham, Ontario, Canada native, was a first-team pick after averaging 15.6 points and 5.7 rebounds on the season. She ranks fifth in the Big 12 in scoring and 16th in rebounding. She also leads the nation at the free throw line, netting 93.8 percent, which is poised to break Iowa State’s school record of 91.9 percent, set by Brynn Williamson.
Johnson, a Brooklyn Park, Minn. native, earned honorable mention honors after ranking fourth in the Big 12 in points (15.7) and rebounds (8.3). Johnson sits in ninth in Iowa State history in career points (1,612) and third in rebounding (1,037). She is one of two Cyclones to reach 1,500 career points and over 1,000 rebounds.
Buckley, a Mason City High grad, ranks third in the Big 12 in assists per game with 5.2. She also ranks third on the team with 14.2 points and started every game this season for the Cyclones. She tallied five or more assists in 20 games so far this season. Buckley’s honor is the third in her career after being a unanimous selection to the All-Freshman team in 2014 and earning honorable mention in 2015.
