The Iowa women’s basketball team (5-5, 0-1 Big Ten) will return to Carver-Hawkeye Arena to face Drake (6-2) at 1 p.m. on Dec. 20.

The game will be televised live on the Big Ten Network.

Iowa head coach Lisa Bluder has won the last seven contests against her former team, including a 71-53 win in Des Moines last season. But the Hawkeyes enter this year’s meeting having lost three straight.

Conversely, the Bulldogs are riding a four-game winning streak.

Monique Jones and Rachael Hackbarth each tallied 14 points to help lead Drake to a 70-58 home victory over North Dakota on Sunday. Jordann Plummer leads the Bulldogs in scoring, averaging 15.8 points per game.

Iowa sophomore point guard Kamille Wahlin will try to continue to fill the void left by the injury to leading Hawkeye scorer Kachine Alexander.

In the seven games that the sophomore has been out of the lineup, Wahlin has averaged 17.7 points while shooting 45.5 percent from the floor. She is also shooting 91.7 percent from the free-throw line.

Hawkeye fans who present their souvenir FedEx Orange Bowl patch or ticket stub from Saturday’s men’s basketball game against Drake will receive free admission.
