The Hawkeye women have made six straight NCAA tournament appearances and early indications look like a seventh is on its way.

With such consistent performances, Iowa gave basketball coach Lisa Bluder a one-year extension through 2019.

She’s one of 13 active coaches with at least 600 wins. Her Hawkeyes are currently ranked 21st.

It was an easy decision for athletic director Gary Barta.

“She is committed to continuing to work toward even more success in the future,” Barta said in a statement. “We’re fortunate and grateful to have Lisa and her family at the University of Iowa.”
