The next women’s March Madness must-see matchup is set.

Caitlin Clark and the top-seeded Iowa Hawkeyes are heading to the Women’s NCAA Tournament Final Four after defeating LSU in a rematch of last year’s championship game in the Elite Eight. Now, the Hawkeyes will face the UConn Huskies in Cleveland for a highly anticipated matchup for a bid to the finals.

During the game against LSU, Clark exhibited an exceptional performance that proved too much for the Tigers, leading to the Hawkeyes’ victory with a score of 94-87.

Clark’s outstanding performance included 41 points, 12 assists, and seven rebounds, and earned him the title of Most Outstanding Player in the regional tournament. During the game, Clark broke several NCAA tournament records, including the record for most career assists, surpassing Temeka Johnson. Clark also surpassed Diana Taurasi and Taylor Robertson for the most career three-pointers made in NCAA tournament history and became the first player in NCAA tournament history to have three career 40-point games.

Paige Bueckers led UConn to an 80-73 win over USC in the Elite Eight, scoring 28 points and securing a spot in the national semifinals for the 23rd time. Aaliyah Edwards added 24 points and six rebounds in the victory over the Trojans.

UConn vs. Iowa predictions

The Athletic: Pick Iowa

Grace Raynor and Sabreena Merchant writes: “Assuming Clark will get hers, the onus is on Bueckers to match her production. The UConn senior has never been as prolific a shot-hunter as Clark, but she has averaged nearly 28 points since the start of the conference tournament. Bueckers rises to the occasion in March, and her teammates have done enough to complement her for the Huskies to advance this far. Aaliyah Edwards will be a load for Hannah Stuelke. The rest of UConn’s rotation will have to make quick decisions with the ball; either shoot on the catch or get off of it so that Bueckers and Edwards can continue to bend the defense. Iowa and UConn both rated as top-five offenses during the regular season, per Her Hoop Stats, so this should be a fun one. The Huskies have a better defense on paper, but there is no challenge quite like defending Clark. The way she is rolling, it’s hard to bet against her putting together a storybook finish to her collegiate career.”

Des Moines Register: Iowa 88, UConn 83

Gus Martin writes: “This is a terrific matchup on paper that can go either way. But Iowa gets the slight edge because of how well Clark is playing right now and her teammates repeated ability to follow her lead and rise to the occasion.”

ESPN: UConn has a 60% chance to beat Iowa

According to ESPN’s Matchup Predictor, the UConn Huskies have a 60.6% chance of beating the Iowa Hawkeyes in the Final Four.
