Caitlin Clark shaken up by fan collision after Ohio State stuns Iowa

Published on


Cotie McMahon had a career-high 33 points and 12 rebounds as No. 18 Ohio State rallied to stun No. 2 Iowa 100-92 in overtime on Sunday, despite 45 points from Hawkeyes superstar Caitlin Clark.

The Buckeyes (15-3, 6-1) trailed by as many as 12 points in regulation but forced the extra period by rallying to tie the game at 83.

Clark scored all of Iowa’s nine overtime points. A 3-pointer from Rebeka Mikulasikova gave Ohio State a six-point lead with 1:14 left in overtime. A basket by McMahon and four late free throws from Jacy Sheldon sealed with win and fans streamed out of the stands to celebrate on the court.

A scary sight unfolded when one Ohio State fan collided with Clark as she exited the court. Clark appeared shaken up by the collision and had to be helped into the tunnel by Hawkeyes staffers. However, Clark said in her postgame press conference that she’s “OK now” and just got the wind knocked out of her. She had already received an apology for the incident from Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith.

The Buckeyes win snapped a 15-game win streak for the Hawkeyes (18-2, 7-1 Big Ten).


Iowa: Clark carries the load for Iowa, and it was never more apparent than in this game, when the next highest scorer was Molly Davis with 14 points.

Ohio State: A signature win for the Buckeyes that should give them a big boost in the AP Top 25.
