No. 3 Iowa Women Play Colorado Friday Night In Seattle

Iowa coach Lisa Bluder says freshman standout Hannah Stuelke will play Friday night when the third ranked Hawkeyes take on Colorado in the NCAA Sweet-16 in Seattle.

Stuelke missed last Sunday’s win over Georgia with an ankle injury.

A year ago Colorado lost to Creighton in a first round game in Iowa City.

Bluder says Colorado runs a similar double-post offense to Georgia.

Junior guard Caitlin Clark says balance has been a key for the Hawkeyes in the post season and it will be needed against Colorado

Iowa is the highest seeded team remaining in a regional that has featured several upsets.

Iowa center Monika Czinano says just like Georgia, Colorado’s size is a concern.

Czinano says Stuelke’s return will be a plus against Colorado’s size on the front line.

Tip off is at 6:30. Louisville and Ole Miss meet in the other regional semifinal.
