As most fans know, scoring is just one part of Clark’s all-around game. She chipped in 6 assists in the first half as the Hawkeyes look to stun the Gamecocks in the Final Four.
For the second half, fouls will be one area to watch for the Hawkeyes. Both Clark and star forward Monika Czinano have 2 fouls, so they will need to play a clean 3rd quarter without getting into deeper foul trouble.
South Carolina star Aliyah Boston was not a factor without a single bucket and 2 fouls in the first half, but the Gamecocks have the depth to make up for that absence. South Carolina’s bench scored 19 points while Iowa’s bench had just 2 points in the first half.
