    Sports world reacts to Iowa's Final Four-clinching win over LSU

    By ESPN Staff,


    Caitlin Clark 's 41 points and 12 assists led the No. 1 seed Iowa Hawkeyes back to the Final Four, defeating the No. 3 seed LSU Tigers 94-87 on Monday night.

    In a highly anticipated rematch of the 2023 national championship game, which the Tigers won, Clark sank nine 3-pointers, tied for the most by a player in a game in women's NCAA tournament history, according to ESPN Stats & Information. LSU star Angel Reese had 17 points and 20 rebounds, becoming the second player to grab at least 20 rebounds in a regional final.

    It is the first time in Iowa women's basketball history that the Hawkeyes have appeared in the Final Four in back-to-back seasons.

    "To get back here is really hard. This region was loaded with so much talent," Clark said. "Job's not finished."

    Stars took to social media to react to the Hawkeyes defeating the Tigers.
