Doyle tabs 5th Big Ten weekly honor

Sports

February 10th, 2020 by Chris Parks

IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa’s senior Kathleen Doyle was named to the Big Ten Player of the Week Honor Roll, the conference announced Monday.

Doyle’s honor tallies nine for the Hawkeyes this season. Warnock earned the first Big Ten honor of her career, and Doyle now has accumulated five, including two Big Ten Player of the Week and three Player of the Week Honor Roll awards. McKenna Warnock earned Freshman of the Week (Jan. 27), and senior Makenzie Meyer and sophomore Monika Czinano have also been named to the Big Ten Honor Roll this season.

Doyle broke the Hawkeyes’ single-game assist record against Nebraska (Feb. 6), assisting 15 of Iowa’s 28 made baskets in the 76-60 win over the Cornhuskers and marking her the first Big Ten women’s basketball player to record 15 assists in a single game against a Big Ten opponent since Tori Jankoska (Michigan State) did against Minnesota (Feb. 21, 2016). Her 15 points and 15 assists marked her third double-double of the season and seventh of her career.

On Sunday in Iowa’s, 83-71, win at Purdue, Doyle and Meyer led the Hawkeyes with 22 points apiece, marking her 11th 20-point game of the season.

Doyle and the Hawkeyes hit the road for a Big Ten matchup at Maryland in College Park, Maryland, on Thursday. Tip-off is set for 5 p.m. (CT), and the game will air live on BTN.

Sports

February 10th, 2020 by Chris Parks

AMES, Iowa – Iowa State sophomore guard Tyrese Haliburton will miss the remainder of the 2019-20 season after suffering a left wrist fracture near the end of the first half in Saturday evening’s win against Kansas State.

The new injury was revealed Sunday after Haliburton underwent an MRI.

“We are disappointed for Tyrese and his family and we are focused on helping him in his recovery,” head coach Steve Prohm said. “Tyrese is a great teammate, leader and valuable member of this program and university in so many ways. There is no doubt in my mind that Tyrese will face this setback with the same energy and passion that we have all come to appreciate and that he will return from this better than ever.”

“This comes as a shock to me, my family, my teammates and coaches,” Haliburton said. “As this season continues, I will try to to be the best teammate possible. I know my brothers will step up and I can’t wait to be there every step of the way.”

Haliburton, a Bob Cousy Award finalist and Oshkosh, Wisconsin native, averaged 15.2 points, 5.9 rebounds and a Big 12-best 6.5 assists and 2.5 steals in 22 games.
