In addition, the game between the University of Iowa and Louisiana State University that day was the district final, but it was the quarterfinals, not the national final.

The reason why so much attention was focused on this game was because of Iowa University’s ‘super star’ Caitlin Clark.

Clark set the all-time scoring record (3,900 points) across the NCAA men’s and women’s first division leagues, and is likely to be the first overall pick in this year’s Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) rookie draft.

As the rematch took place in the quarterfinals this year, the interest of basketball fans grew even more.

Louisiana State University’s Reese, who had a confrontation with Clark in the finals a year ago, contributed with 17 points and 20 rebounds, but failed to achieve his second consecutive victory in the tournament. 한국야동
