Caitlin Clark and Iowa end unbeaten season of defending national champion South Carolina, 77-73 in women’s Final Four

The Iowa Hawkeyes women's basketball team made history on Sunday night, upsetting the defending national champion South Carolina Gamecocks in the Final Four, 77-73.

The Hawkeyes were led by freshman guard Caitlin Clark, who recorded a double-double of 33 points and 10 rebounds. Clark was the key to the Hawkeyes' victory, as she was able to hit timely shots and keep the pace of the game in Iowa's favor.

The game was tight throughout, with the teams trading leads multiple times. With the score tied at 73 with just over two minutes to play, Clark hit a crucial three-pointer to give the Hawkeyes the lead. South Carolina had a chance to tie the game on their next possession, but a missed three-pointer sealed the victory for Iowa.

The win was Iowa's first ever Final Four victory, and it ended South Carolina's unbeaten season. The Gamecocks had been on a roll, winning their last 22 games, but the Hawkeyes were able to put an end to their run.

This was a special win for the Hawkeyes, especially for Caitlin Clark, who was playing in her first ever Final Four game. Clark has been an integral part of the Hawkeyes success this season, and her performance in this game was a testament to that.

The Hawkeyes will now face Stanford in the National Championship game, and will look to win their first ever National Championship. With Clark leading the way, the Hawkeyes have a real chance to make history.
