The Iowa Hawkeyes secured their spot in the Final Four with a commanding 94-87 victory over the LSU Tigers, fueled by Caitlin Clark's remarkable 41-point performance.

After suffering a defeat to LSU in last season's national championship game, Iowa came back with a vengeance, led by the unstoppable Clark. The No. 1-seeded Hawkeyes refused to let history repeat itself, showcasing their determination and resilience on the court.

Clark's dazzling display included 13-for-29 shooting from the field, with 9-of-20 shots from beyond the arc. Despite fierce defensive efforts from LSU's Hailey Van Lith, Clark's shooting prowess proved too much to handle, leaving opponents in awe as she drained deep three-pointers with precision.

However, Clark's impact extended beyond scoring, as she also contributed 12 assists, breaking the NCAA Tournament career record in the process. Her stellar play not only propelled Iowa's offense but also highlighted her versatility as a team player.

The game's pivotal moment came in the third quarter, as Iowa embarked on an 8-0 run to establish a commanding 11-point lead, leaving LSU struggling to find answers. Despite a late surge from the Tigers in the fourth quarter, fueled by Angel Reese's valiant efforts, Iowa's lead proved insurmountable.


Reese, who had a strong start for LSU, finished with 17 points and a game-high 20 rebounds but was hampered by an ankle injury and stifled by Iowa's defensive tactics. Despite LSU's dominance on the boards, shooting woes ultimately hindered their chances of overcoming Iowa's offensive firepower.

Iowa's victory was a collective effort, with contributions from players like Kate Martin and Sydney Affolter, who provided crucial scoring and defensive support.

With their ticket punched to the Final Four, Iowa now awaits the outcome of the matchup between No. 1 USC and No. 3 UConn, eager to continue their pursuit of the national championship.
