In a stunning upset, the Iowa Hawkeyes have triumphed over the South Carolina Gamecocks in the NCAA Women's Tournament Final Four, thanks to a remarkable performance by freshman guard Caitlin Clark.
The Hawkeyes, who were underdogs heading into the game, pulled away in the fourth quarter, thanks to a game-high 41 points from Clark. The Iowa guard was nearly unstoppable, shooting 14-of-25 from the field, including 7-of-11 from behind the arc, and 12-of-15 from the charity stripe.
Clark's relentless attack put the Gamecocks on their heels, as she scored Iowa's final 10 points in the fourth quarter to seal the victory for the Hawkeyes. It was the first time the Hawkeyes had made it to the Final Four since 1993, and the first time a freshman had led them to victory.
The Hawkeyes' defense was also impressive, holding South Carolina to just 27.3% shooting from the field. South Carolina was led by senior guard Tyasha Harris, who finished with 19 points, but it wasn't enough to get past Clark and the Hawkeyes.
The Hawkeyes' win was an incredible display of resilience and determination, and it was capped off by a brilliant performance by Clark. The freshman guard was ruthless in her attack, and her 41-point game helped Iowa secure the upset win. It was a remarkable effort, and one that will surely be remembered for years to come.
