Czinano, Clark help No. 4 Iowa defeat Drake 92-86 in OT

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Monika Czinano scored 36 points and Caitlin Clark added 28 to help No. 4 Iowa beat Drake 92-86 in overtime on Sunday.

Czinano and Clark scored all but two points from the Hawkeyes in overtime as Iowa edged the Bulldogs 10-4.

The Hawkeyes have won 10 of the last 11 games in this domestic rivalry, but this one was a challenge.

“I think we found ways to win,” Clark said. “I don’t think we did our best – I think I can say that. But that’s what we’ve talked about all year – finding ways to win when our offense isn’t going the way you want it to.”

“I think that will be good for us, good in the long run,” said Czinano.

Iowa shot just 41.8% for the game but came up with crucial shots in the fourth quarter and overtime.

“Great teams make detailed plays on the course,” said Drake Coach Allison Pohlman. “If we take a few more shots, get a few more rebounds or steals, maybe it’s a different game.”
