Hawkeye women cruise into Colorado at 4-0

IOWA CITY — It was one of those games that provided everyone in Hawkeye black and gold to stand and applaud.

And when Hailey Schneden scored her only two points of the night midway through the second half on Sunday, there was more than enough reason for the Hawkeye women’s basketball bench to explode.

The Davenport Assumption freshman’s layup, off a dish from Samantha Logic, sealed a second half runaway for Iowa against Stony Brook on Sunday. The Hawkeyes outscored the visiting Seawolves 42-19 in the second half, including a 32-12 surge to end the game that started with Schneden’s bucket, to move Iowa to 4-0 on the season with a 78-40 win at Carver Hawkeye Arena.

“It’s fun when every one of your players scores and every one of your players gets a rebound,” Iowa women’s head basketball coach Lisa Bluder said. “I think when Hailey hit that basket, our bench was so excited; it was like we just won the Big Ten Championship. But that’s how much this team gets along and cares about each other, and that’s what makes it fun.”

The win sends Iowa on the road for the first this season at 4-0. The Hawkeyes first road test will come tonight at No. 16 Colorado. Tip-off is set for 9:30 p.m.

“I think any time you get a ranked opponent, it just builds momentum. It builds confidence for your team,” Bluder said. “Now we’re going on the road, so we have that. New road tests, have to get ready for that, but we know we can beat top 25 teams. We did it seven times last year, so we’re prepared.”

Iowa overcame an early 6-2 deficit that came after back-to-back 3-pointers by Stony Brook. The Hawkeye defense began a dominant day by holding Stony Brook scoreless for almost seven minutes, scoring 15 points in a row during that span to open a double-digit lead midway through the first half.
