Clark put on a show throughout the NCAA Tournament. Iowa reached the National Championship Game thanks to back-to-back 41-point performances vs. Louisville and South Carolina in the Elite Eight and Final Four.
Despite Clark’s heroics, LSU was unstoppable on Sunday afternoon in Dallas. The Tigers scored a title game record 102 points and shot 54.3% from the field in the win.
Clark, who also was named National Player of the Year, could return to Iowa for her senior season in 2023-24. This was Iowa’s first-ever trip to the National Championship Game.
