Iowa guard Jaime Printy was named Big Ten Player of the Week on Tuesday after the Hawkeyes finished their week 2-0 and finally cracked the AP’s Top-25 poll, coming in at No. 24.

Last week, Iowa defeated Wisconsin and then-No. 23 Michigan to improve to 16-5 on the season, 6-0 against opponents ranked in the top-25.

Printy was recognized for her play after she averaged 21 points and 6 rebounds while shooting 54 percent from the field. The senior guard also went 14-15 from the free throw line. She is also the Big Ten leader in free-throw percentage, shooting 93 percent from the charity stripe.

The Marion native also ranks 13th in the Big Ten in scoring with 14 points per contest.

Printy’s most impressive performance came against Wisconsin on Jan. 24. With Iowa reeling, Printy found her stride and closed the game scoring the last 14 points for the Black and Gold. She finished the contest with 29 points, going 8-of-10 from the field and 10-of-11 from the free-throw line.
