The Iowa women opened up the week with a 105-80 win over Northern Illinois.
It was textbook Lisa Bluder basketball.
All five starters were in double figures and Hannah Stewart came off the bench scoring 13 points with two blocked shots.
Alexis Sevillian made her first start with Kathleen Doyle out with an injury.
Alexis looked like she belonged, scoring 15 points in 30 minutes.
Makenzie Meyer and Tania Davis combined for 15 assists and Tania had a career-high 10 rebounds.
The Hawks scored 52 points in the paint, led by Megan Gustafson (22 points, 11 rebounds) and Chase Coley (20 points, seven rebounds).
It was good to see Carly Mohns get some quality time after being injured for the last two seasons.
Carly played 20 minutes, scored six points with five rebounds and three assists.
The women finished the weekend with a 79-56 win over Western Michigan at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
This time there were four players in double figures.
Alexis followed her 15-point performance with 19 on Sunday with nine assists.
Alexis can drive, draw the foul or hit the 3-pointer.
Makenzie Meyer was hitting from outside going 5-8 from 3-point range and scoring a career-high 21 points.
So far, Iowa has shown great balance, which makes them tough to cover.
