IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Diamond Johnson and Saniya Rivers each scored 22 points to help No. 12 North Carolina State overcome a 45-point effort from Caitlin Clark and beat No. 10 Iowa 94-81 in an ACC/Big Ten Challenge game on Thursday night.

Johnson and Rivers led a balanced scoring night for the Wolfpack (7-1), who had five players score in double figures.

"Forty-five, that's insane," Rivers said of Clark's night. "I'm glad we came together as a team. I think we had five in double figures. You can't win it alone. So I'm glad we were the better team tonight."
