Caitlin Clark has done it again and the magical season for the Iowa Hawkeyes continues to roll on! After landing in the Final Four against No. 1 and undefeated South Carolina, the Hawkeyes pulled off the stunner with a  victory.

This game was built up as a matchup for the ages for quite some time, and it delivered at every twist and turn. The game pitted National Player of the Year winner Caitlin Clark against South Carolina’s Aliyah Boston, the 2022 recipient of the award. The Gamecocks were also in pursuit of back-to-back national titles and an undefeated season.

When it was all said and done, Clark delivered another historic outing. She produced 41 points en route to the win, setting the record for the most points scored in a national semifinal.

It was Clark’s hot shooting from deep that helped Iowa race out to a 22-13 lead following the end of the first quarter. Though she eventually cooled off a bit from 3-point range, she still delivered the 41 points to go with 8 assists, 6 rebounds and a steal.

Monika Czinano — Clark’s main running mate — finished with 18 points and 3 rebounds while battling hard inside against the bigs of South Carolina. McKenna Warnock also grabbed 3 rebounds including a crucial offensive board late that allowed Iowa to maintain its lead late.

Boston, South Carolina’s NPOY candidate, was held to 8 points on 2-for-9 shooting. She was severely limited by 2 first-half fouls and was unable to get on track in the second half.

Zia Cooke was the leading scorer for the Gamecocks with 24 points and gave Iowa’s defense trouble all game long. Kamilla Cardoso — the 6-foot-7 center for South Carolina — also presented problems with 14 points and 14 rebounds (including 9 offensive boards).

In the end, the size and rebounding of South Carolina (including 26 offensive boards) nearly proved to be the difference, but Clark’s playmaking and scoring proved to be the difference yet again for the Hawkeyes.

Up next, Iowa will face LSU with a shot at a first-ever national title for the Hawkeyes.
