Clark started the week out with a career-high 26 points at Drake. Clark was effective from the inside and from the outside, making 10-of-15 from the field, including a career-high five 3-pointers in six tries. Clark, who scored 19 of his 26 points in the second half, also had seven rebounds, three blocks and four steals. He followed that game with a 17-point, three steal night in ISU's 72-60 win over No. 12 Iowa. Clark was 6-of-12 from the field and 3-of-7 from downtown in the win.

In his last three games, Clark is 11-of-18 from 3-point range (61.1 percent). Clark leads ISU this season in field goal percentage (60.5 percent), 3-pointers made (14) and blocks (10).
