Iowa, Big Ten Announce 2022-23 Women’s Basketball Schedule

IOWA CITY, Iowa --
The University of Iowa, in conjunction with the Big Ten Conference, announced its 2022-23 women’s basketball schedule on Wednesday.

The defending Big Ten Champions will play five league teams twice and eight teams once. The Hawkeyes play home/away matchups against Indiana, Maryland, Nebraska, Penn State and Wisconsin. Iowa hosts Minnesota, Purdue, Northwestern and Rutgers in Carver-Hawkeye Arena, and travels to Illinois, Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State.

The Hawkeyes posted a 14-4 Big Ten regular season mark in 2022, winning the Big Ten Tournament and earning a share of the conference regular season championship. Iowa finished the 2021-22 campaign 24-8 overall and advanced to the NCAA Second Round.

Iowa returns 11 letterwinners, including all five starters: Caitlin Clark, Monika Czinano, Gabbie Marshall, Kate Martin and McKenna Warnock. Clark was a consensus All-American, Nancy Lieberman Point Guard of the Year, Dawn Staley Guard of the Year, Big Ten Player of the Year, Big Ten Tournament MVP and was a finalist for the Naismith Award, WBCA Wade Trophy and John R. Wooden Award. Czinano was named an Associated Press and WBCA All-America honorable mention, and was a Lisa Leslie Center of the Year semifinalist, while leading the nation in field-goal percentage (.679).

Fans can purchase season tickets ($125), at the UI Athletics Ticket Office at Carver-Hawkeye Arena, over the phone at 1-800-IA-HAWKS, or online at Fight For Iowa mobile pass tickets ($199) will go on sale late September. Single game tickets will go on sale in early October.

Tip time and television information will be announced at a later date.

I can't wait for this season. I am looking more forward to the Women's season than I am the Men's hoops or the rest of the football season.
