Caitlin Clark has delivered time and time again for Iowa this season. Friday night, she came up big time yet again with 41 points as the Hawkeyes downed South Carolina, 77-73, to advance to the national final.

In the process, Clark became the first-ever player with back-to-back 40-point outings in the NCAA Tournament. She also scored or assisted on every Iowa basket in the 4th quarter as the Hawkeyes stunned the previously unbeaten Gamecocks.

Following Friday’s game, Clark has now appeared in 8 postseason games with Iowa this season going back to the B1G Tournament. In those 8 games, she has scored an eye-popping 235 points for an average of just over 29 points per game.

Those numbers alone are gaudy for any hoops player, but it’s even more impressive stacked against Iowa’s football performance from the 2022 season. Last season, the Hawkeyes scored just 230 points all season long in 13 games played.

Even considering the historically disappointing nature of Iowa’s offense, that is quite the comparison. Now, Clark will try to produce the program’s first-ever national title in a matchup against LSU.
