Sam Logic frequently toes the line of a triple-double — which, for a point guard, is a particularly impressive stat line. When the Iowa women’s team traveled to Wisconsin on Sunday, however, she reminded everybody that she can score in a big way.

After the Hawks trailed early in the game, Logic exploded for a career-high 30 points in an 87-75 road victory, moving the team to 19-4 overall, 10-2 in the Big Ten.

The teams battled back and forth for the first several minutes, but a string of missed shots had the Hawkeyes down by as many as 9 and trailing 25-18 near the 10-minute mark.

Logic scored 6 of the team’s next 12 points to tie the game at 30 with 5:42 remaining in the half, and she was only getting started.

Ally Disterhoft scored the next 7 points for the Hawkeyes as the teams again jostled through several ties, before a 3 by the sophomore put them ahead 37-34 with under a minute remaining. They led 42-38 at the half.

In the second, well, Logic and the gang didn’t waste time. Iowa opened the half on a 19-2 run and led 61-40 before the 15-minute mark, with Logic notching 11 of those points.

Iowa went on to lead by as many as 25, allowing for smooth sailing through the remainder of the game.

Logic also accrued 7 rebounds and 4 assists, and Bethany Doolittle followed with 18 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 5 steals, and 3 blocks.

Disterhoft was also on pace for her fifth-consecutive 20-point game before she was yanked early. She finished with 17 points and 7 rebounds.

The Hawkeyes will be back in action on Thursday at 8 p.m. in Lincoln, Nebraska.
