Fans of Bowling Green women’s basketball are still riding high after Monday night’s buzzer-beater win against Duquesne.

But now, a test unlike any other this season is on the docket for the Falcons- the #4 team in the country in the Iowa Hawkeyes.

It would already be a tough enough test facing that level of team, but who do they have on their roster?

The reigning AP National Player of the Year, and State Farm’s latest celebrity, Caitlin Clark.

A look at the Hawkeyes:
