The Hawkeyes lost 65-58, and Clark had a poor shooting performance for her standards. She finished with 24 points, three assists, and six rebounds in 37 minutes, but she shot nine of 32 from the field.
"It's certainly one we can learn from and probably taught us a lot of lessons of how we can get better," Clark said following the loss.
She also discussed getting her teammates more action. Only one other player on the Hawkeyes finished with double-digit points: Molly Davis with 10.
"We need more people to be able to contribute, and that's on me to get them involved in the game," Clark said. "Especially on nights where I might not shoot the ball as great. Rely on my teammates, get them open, get them a clean look."

"I'm drinking some Wade Rose Wine and watching women's college hoops! Caitlin Clark is simply good at basketball! That's all..." Wade said.
However, in that game, Clark struggled to shoot from the floor. She went five of 16 from three-point range.
After that game, she said, "This win speaks a lot about our team, speaks a lot about our culture... We really battled through. We didn't shoot the ball well, I didn't shoot the ball well."
The Hawkeyes and Clark will have a chance to rebound against Drake on Sun "ay, November 19 at 7:00 PM.
