SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

2 – Ally Disterhoft; Soph., Guard, 6-0

An Iowa City native, Disterhoft wowed her hometown Hawkeye fans with her impressive freshman season. She finished as the second leading freshman scorer in Iowa history, third leading rebounder, and made the fourth most three-pointers. She received All Big Ten Honorable Mention honors and will be a focal point of the Hawkeye offense.

Points: 13. 2 per game
Field Goal: .49 percent
3PT Field Goal: 34 percent
Rebounds: 6.4 per game

21 – Melissa Dixon; Sr., Guard, 5-8

Dixon enters 2014 as fifth on Iowa’s all-time list of most three-pointers made and is the 32nd all-time scorer. The senior from Johnsburg, Illinois will start and help fuel the Hawkeye offense.
Points: 13.1 per game

Field Goal: 39 percent
3PT Field Goal: .35 percent
Rebounds: 2.1 per game

22 – Samantha Logic; Sr., Guard, 5-9

Logic is the unquestioned leader of Iowa’s 2014 squad, and is the school’s all-time leader in assists (ninth all-time in the Big Ten), seventh in steals, 13th in rebounds, and 28th in scoring. She received honorable mention All-American honors last year.

Points: 13.3 per game
Field Goal: 49 percent
3PT Field Goal: 36 percent
Rebounds: 6.6 per game

51 – Bethany Doolittle; Sr., Center, 6-4

Doolittle is Bluder’s returning starter in the post, and showed in her junior season that she can be a force on both ends of the floor. Doolittle was historically good on defense, however, averaging 2.9 blocks per game for an Iowa-record 106 on the year. The senior will be essential to Iowa’s success.

Points: 14.2 per game
Field Goal: 55 percent
Rebounds: 4.7 per game
Blocks: 2.9

25 – Kali Peschel; Jr., Forward, 6-1

Peschel started 19 games as a sophomore. The junior from Sauk Centre, Minnesota led the Hawkeyes in rebounds four times, and posted season-highs of 15 points of 14 rebounds. Bluder will likely look to Peschel first to replace much of what was lost with the graduation of Theaairra Taylor.

Points: 4.4 per game
Field Goal: 35 percent
3PT Field Goal: 16 percent
Rebounds: 3.9 per game
