It was hard to believe that in the history of Iowa basketball, no one had posted a triple-double. That was until Tuesday night when Payton Sandfort hauled in a rebound off a missed free throw in the final seconds. It was his tenth of the game to go with ten assists and 26 points and the first triple-double by a men’s player in program history. Following the game, Sandfort was quick to point out that Caitlin Clark does it all the time and in fact, he did it for the fifth time this season on Sunday on the same floor.

Sandfort talks about one of the assistant coaches letting him know he needed one more rebound late, but not really knowing it was for what it was for in the game. He also credited Josh Dix and his red hot shooting for getting him to ten assists in the game. Finally he talks about his big three pointer later to put the game out of reach from the Nittany Lions.
