Caitlin Clark steals show as Iowa stuns defending champ South Carolina

DALLAS — The Aliyah Boston and Caitlin Clark Showdown never materialized. 

What we got was even better. 

Clark put on a performance deserving of this massive stage, draining 3-pointers, breaking ankles in front of the basket and firing pinpoint passes at her teammates that South Carolina could only watch whiz by. She finished with 41 points and eight assists while Monika Czinano was devastating inside as Iowa won 77-73, snapping the defending national champions’ 42-game winning streak. 

Iowa will play LSU on Sunday, with both teams trying to win their first national title. 

As time expired, Clark threw the ball in the air and cupped her hand to her right ear as if to say, “You hear that? That’s the sound of a giant tumbling.”
