IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa junior guard Samantha Logic has been named Big Ten Player of Week following her second career triple-double in Iowa's 73-51 win over Drake on Saturday. The announcement was made Monday by the conference office.

"What can I say about Sam that hasn't already been said?" said UI head coach Lisa Bluder following Iowa's 11th victory of the season. "Every game I get an `oh wow' moment where I just stand up and applaud because it's so much fun to see what she did.

"It was a great performance. For her to grab 17 rebounds as a point guard, that's pretty amazing, and she also shot the ball well."

Logic (5-foot-9) -- the Big Ten leader in assists -- tallied 12 points, 10 assists and 17 rebounds, while shooting 85.7 percent from the field on 6-of-7 shooting and added two steals. She last accomplished the feat on Feb. 26, 2012, against Michigan (13 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists).

Logic -- the only current Big Ten player with two career triple-doubles -- has two of the five triple-doubles in program history -- Cara Consuegra, Kachine Alexander (twice).

The Racine, Wis., native, who has 15 career double-doubles, is second in career assists at Iowa (441). She surpassed Michelle Edwards (431) during Iowa's win over the Bulldogs.

Logic, 1-of-2 conference juniors named preseason All-Big Ten, has nine career games with double-digit assists, equaling Cara Consuegra for the most in program history.

The award marks Logic's fourth career Player of the Week honor, and second this season (Nov. 12).

Iowa (11-2) returns to action Saturday, hosting North Dakota at 2 p.m. (CT) on Mediacom Court at Carver-Hawkeye Arena in its final nonconference game.
