Clark Is Unanimous AP All-American

By JOHN BOHNENKAMP

Iowa guard Caitlin Clark was a unanimous selection on the Associated Press’ preseason women’s basketball All-American team that was released Tuesday.

Clark became the first player in program history to be a unanimous pick in back-to-back seasons.

Clark was the Big Ten’s preseason player of the year and was a unanimous choice to the all-conference team.

“You’ve seen the nation’s respect,” Iowa coach Lisa Bluder said at last Thursday’s media day. “To get anybody to agree unanimously on anything these days is almost impossible.”

Clark was the Big Ten’s player of the year last season and was a finalist for the Naismith and Wooden awards, given to the top player in women’s basketball. She led the nation in scoring at 27 points per game and assists at eight per game. She also led the nation with 863 points, 200 free throws made, five triple-doubles and 11 30-point games.
