Following a win last week Lisa Bluder said Samantha Logic was playing like an all-American.

On Monday, Big Ten coaches and media members agreed.

Logic was a first-team all-Big Ten selection by both the conference's coaches and media, headlining a group of four players honored by the league.

A unanimous first-team pick by the league's coaches, Logic became the first Iowa player to earn first-team all-conference recognition in back-to-back seasons since Kachine Alexander in 2010 and 2011.

Logic has received post-season Big Ten honors all four years at Iowa, earning third-team honors as a sophomore after being named to the all-freshman team in 2012.

She became the ninth player in Iowa history to earn first-team all-Big Ten honors multiple times.

Logic was also named Big Ten and ESPN player of the week on Monday after averaging 22 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds in wins over Wisconsin and Minnesota.

"Sam Logic, wow, she's playing like an all-American, isn't she?," Bluder said after the win over the Badgers.

The NCAA's active leader in career assists, Logic holds the Iowa record for assists in a game, season and career and ranks third in assists in Big Ten history.

She leads the Big Ten and ranks third in the nation this season with 8.0 assists per game while also averaging 13.4 points and 6.9 rebounds per game.

Logic joins Brittany Boyd of California as the only two players in the nation averaging 11 points, seven assists and six rebounds per game.

"I think she's taken it to another level lately, I really do," Bluder said. "She's just playing confidently."

Melissa Dixon and Ally Disterhoft were both second-team selections by both the coaches and media while Bethany Doolittle was a second-team pick by the league coaches and received honorable-mention honors from the media.

Iowa finished second place in the Big Ten standings at 14-4.

Disterhoft leads Iowa in scoring at 15.2 points per game while Dixon ranks second on the team at 15.1 points per game and ranks second in the nation in 3-point field goals per game.

A senior from Johnsburg, Ill., Dixon is Iowa's record holder for 3-pointers in a career, season and game.

Dixon has made eight or more 3-pointers in four different games this season and is three 3-pointers away from setting a Big Ten record for 3-pointers in a season.

A sophomore who went to West High, Disterhoft was named to the second team after earning honorable-mention honors from both the league coaches and media last season.

Doolittle, a senior from Oakdale, Minn., is averaging 13.7 points and 6.8 rebounds per game this season.

Doolittle ranks second all time at Iowa in blocked shots and set a single-game school record with nine blocks in Iowa's win over Minnesota on Sunday.
