Iowa’s Academic and Graduation Success

Iowa has earned 86 Academic All-Big Ten honors under head coach Lisa Bluder, the third-most in the conference during that time span (since the 2000-01 season).

Iowa’s NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR) and Graduation Success Rate (GSR) tops the national average.

In four of the last five years, the Iowa women’s basketball team has earned a perfect “Graduation Success Rate” score of 100, as determined by the NCAA. Iowa has outperformed the national average in each of those seasons.

Additionally, the program has produced three Academic All-Americans. Ally Disterhoft became the first three-time honoree in program history in 2017. She also became just the fifth scholar-athlete to win Academic All-America of the Year in back-to-back seasons (2016, 2017). Lindsey Meder was a two-time Academic All-American (2001, 2002), while Samantha Logic earned Academic All-American distinction in 2015. Iowa was the only Division I women’s basketball team to have two student-athletes honored in 2015 as Disterhoft was the lone sophomore included on the list.
