Hawkeyes land top Wisconsin prep

[ 0 ] May 10, 2014 |

Last season, the Iowa women’s basketball team led the Big Ten conference in scoring.

Saturday, the Hawkeyes picked up a commitment from one of the top prep scorers in Wisconsin history.

Megan Gustafson, a 6-foot-4 junior from South Shore High School in Port Wing, Wis., verbally committed to play for the Hawkeyes, beginning in 2015.

Gustafson confirmed her commitment to the Hawkeyes on Twitter on Saturday with a message that read, “Just committed to play BIG10 basketball the University of Iowa!”

Three years into her prep career, Gustafson ranks as one of the most prolific scorers in Wisconsin girls basketball history.

Gustafson has scored 2,102 points in her prep career, ranking her seventh all-time the state.

She averaged 29.3 points, 18.9 rebounds and 5.9 blocks from tiny South Shore last season after posting 30.9 points, 12.6 rebounds and 5.6 blocks per game as a sophomore.

She averaged 19 points, 13.7 rebounds and 5.3 blocks as a freshman.

Gustafson had 13 Division I offers and selected Iowa over offers from Big Ten schools Wisconsin, Northwestern and Indiana, and also had offers from Iowa State, Kansas State and Green Bay, among others.

Gustafson joins Sioux Falls Roosevelt forward Tagyn Larson as known 2105 verbal commits for the Hawkeyes.

Iowa finished 27-9 last season, equaling the second-most wins ever in program history.

The Hawkeyes reached the NCAA Tournament for the seventh straight season in 2013-2014, where they advanced to the second round for the second year in a row.
