The Iowa women’s basketball team will travel east to play Duke in ACC/Big Ten Challenge this coming season. The draw, which was released Tuesday, has the game set for December 2nd. This is second matchup between the two schools.

The ACC/Big Ten challenge has a number of teams from both conferences play each other during a designated week every season. Iowa beat Clemson 74-60 in 2019. The Big Ten won the challenge overall that year 9-5.

Iowa is coming off a very successful season led by freshman sensation Caitlin Clark, that saw them lose to UConn in the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament. Duke was 3-1 in 2020, before cancelling the remainder of their season over COVID-19 related health and safety concerns.

Games times and coverage will be announced at a later date.
