LSU women dominates Iowa, wins first NCAA basketball championship

DALLAS — Jasmine Carson has a message for everyone who thought this entire Final Four was supposed to be about a junior guard from Iowa. 

Transfers matter, too. 

Carson, one of nine newcomers for LSU this season, scored 22 points off the bench — in just 22 minutes — and third-seeded LSU rolled to a 102-85 win defeat of Iowa and Caitlin Clark to claim the 2023 national championship. 

It was an astonishing performance for Carson, on her third school after stops at Georgia Tech and West Virginia. She was averaging 8.4 points per game before Sunday and hadn’t scored in LSU’s three previous tournament victories. But she made 7 of 8 shots from the field and 5 of her 6 attempts from three.
