The national championship game will mark the culmination of Iowa’s Caitlin Clark’s academic career.

After defeating UConn 71-69 on Friday night in the Final Four, Clark and the Hawkeyes moved to the championship game for the second year in a row. South Carolina, who defeated NC State earlier in the evening, will be their opponent.

Last year, Clark and Iowa lost to LSU in the national championship game. This season, the all-time greatest scorer in college basketball has expressed frustration about the lack of progress and his desire for more. She will now have the opportunity to cap up her brilliant career in style.

Clark is predicted to be the first choice in the WNBA draft and has already declared that she will forgo her fifth COVID year. Although it wouldn’t be necessary, a title would be the ideal farewell for her.

Iowa’s victory caps off a fantastic run by UConn, which made it to the Final Four with just eight players available due to a slew of ailments.

In the closing moments of the match, Aaliyah Edwards was called for an offensive foul, and Connecticut coach Geno Auriemma seemed to take a punch to the stomach.
