Kim Roberson has scored in double-digits in eight consecutive games, including a 15-point game vs. Illinois on Jan. 6 in Bloomington.

Megan Skouby led the Hawkeyes with 23 points off the bench on 7-of-13 shooting from the floor and 9-of-10 shooting from the charity stripe. Kristi Smith and Wendy Ausdemore each netted 15 points, while Jenee Graham grabbed a game-high 11 boards, including seven offensive swipes.
Iowa is led by Smith with 13.1 points per contest. Ausdemore is also averaging in double-digits clocking 10.8 points per outing.
The Hawkeyes are averaging 64.0 points and 36.8 rebounds per game as a team, and have shot 43.0 percent from the field on the year.
LAST SEASON VS. IOWA
Four netted double-digit points for IU, as Sarah McKay led the way with 17 points and 10 rebounds. The Hoosiers were outrebounded, 46-37. However, IU committed just seven turnovers in the effort.
