Mills, Spartan women's basketball team heading to Iowa

January 15, 2014

Fresh off a close win over Michigan, the women’s basketball team (11-5 overall, 3-0 Big Ten) is playing its best basketball of the season.

On Thursday, the Spartans will try for their sixth consecutive win as they travel to Iowa City, Iowa to take on the Hawkeyes at 8 p.m. It is the only meeting of the season between the two teams.

Junior forward Becca Mills will be among a crop of players expected to lead the Spartans, as she helped break a late-game tie against U-M on Sunday with two buckets.

Senior guard Klarissa Bell also played strong in the only meeting between the teams last year.

Iowa (14-4, 2-2) got off to a rough start in the Big Ten season, dropping its first two games to Indiana and Penn State before bouncing back to win against Minnesota and Wisconsin.

If the Spartans’ recent history playing Iowa at Carver-Hawkeye Arena is any indicator, Iowa could be on pace to improve to above .500 in conference play.
