The Good and the Bad in NCAA Women’s Basketball

Iowa and LSU South Carolina

This Sunday marked numerous champions in women’s NCAA basketball tournaments.  There were good and bad moments.

In Minneapolis, the BIG champions were crowned.  It took Iowa an overtime win to earn it’s third straight BIG tourney title.  Caitlin Clark missed numerous shots in the first half and only scored 4 points but she rebounded in the second half and ended the game with 34 points.

During the week Clark set the record for the most three point shots made in a season, surpassing Stephen Curry in the process.  She also surpassed 1,000 points for the season, the first woman to score over a thousand points twice in a career.

In another tournament the SEC crowned its champ after a major brawl broke out late in the game.

South Carolina won the game after forward Kamilla Cardoso was one of six players ejected from the SEC championship game after she shoved LSU‘s Flau’jae Johnson to the floor late in the fourth quarter of the Gamecocks’ 79-72 win.  After the fight the game continued with a South Carolina win.

The women’s NCAA brackets will be announced next weekend.  South Carolina and Iowa are expected to be the top two teams.
