Caitlin Clark Leads Iowa to Final Four Beating Defending Champ LSU with Greatness

This may have been the great Caitlin Clark’s greatest game.  Oh my!

Caitlin Clark led Iowa to an Elite Eight win over defending champion LSU in women’s college basketball.

ESPN shared:

For the second year in a row, Clark had a legendary Elite Eight performance, leading her No. 1 seed Iowa Hawkeyes to a 94-87 victory over defending national champion LSU, the No. 3 seed in the Albany 2 Regional.

Clark had 41 points, 12 assists and 7 rebounds, breaking even more records in what’s been a record-shattering senior season. She was named the regional’s Most Outstanding Player…

…However, the Hawkeyes started Monday’s game sharp. And in a third quarter where Clark’s logo 3-pointers stole the show, Iowa built a lead that it didn’t give up. The program advanced to its second consecutive Final Four and third overall.


Clark broke more records during this game.

She is the top scorer in history in the NCAA for women and men.  She set the record for the most points in a season for women.  She tied the record for the most threes in a tournament game in this game.

“Ted Lasso” star Jason Sudeikis, wearing a hoodie that said, “Everyone watches women’s sports,” was part of the Iowa celebration. Sudeikis was in the crowd cheering on Iowa and he did a “You Can’t see me” celebration late in the game, mimicking LSU’s center Angel Reese who did that last year in the final game.

Iowa will play the University of Connecticut on Friday in the Final Four.

  1. The last two lines of the National Anthem might be changed to,
    The land of the threes (3’s) and the home of the brave.
