IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa junior guard Samantha Logic has been named Big Ten Player of Week following her second career triple-double in Iowa's 73-51 win over Drake on Saturday. The announcement was made Monday by the conference office.
"What can I say about Sam that hasn't already been said?" said UI head coach Lisa Bluder following Iowa's 11th victory of the season. "Every game I get an ‘oh wow' moment where I just stand up and applaud because it's so much fun to see what she did.
"It was a great performance. For her to grab 17 rebounds as a point guard, that's pretty amazing, and she also shot the ball well."
Logic (5-foot-9) -- the Big Ten leader in assists -- tallied 12 points, 10 assists and 17 rebounds, while shooting 85.7 percent from the field on 6-of-7 shooting and added two steals. She last accomplished the feat on Feb. 26, 2012, against Michigan (13 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists).
Logic, the only current Big Ten player with two career triple-doubles, has two of the five triple-doubles in program history -- Cara Consuegra, Kachine Alexander (twice).
The Racine, Wis., native, who has 15 career double-doubles, is second in career assists at Iowa (441). She surpassed Michelle Edwards (431) during Iowa's win over the Bulldogs.
Logic, 1-of-2 conference juniors named preseason All-Big Ten, has nine career games with double-digit assists, equaling Cara Consuegra for the most in program history.
The award marks Logic's fourth career Player of the Week honor, and second this season (Nov. 12).
