Iowa’s star player Caitlin Clark had an impressive performance in the Elite Eight game, scoring 41 points with 12 assists and seven rebounds. She was also named the Albany 2 Regional Most Outstanding Player and set new records for career 3-pointers and NCAA Tournament all-time assists. In addition to her standout play in the Elite Eight game, Clark also tied a single-game tournament record with nine 3-pointers made during that matchup.

These two teams met last year in the Sweet Sixteen, where UConn emerged victorious over USC with a score of 95-76. Paige Bueckers from UConn was a standout player in that game alongside Caitlin Clark from Iowa. The winner of this matchup will move on to play South Carolina or Oregon State in the national championship game on April 10th at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
