Leading up to the contest, the media billed the Elite 8 matchup as a revenge matchup for Caitlin Clark against a team that has stopped hr from reaching her ultimate goal.

Clark was asked after the contest whether she was out for revenge and she did not agree with that sentiment.

“To be honest, no,” Clark said after the game, via On3.com.

“I feel like we prepared for this game. We focus on Iowa, we do what Iowa does, and we’ll come out on top.”

Clark further added that head coach Lisa Bluder told them to focus on what they do best and not get caught up in the media distractions and what they were trying to bill the game as.

“It’s not about last year,” Clark added. “You worry too much about the past, you’re going to get caught up in that. It’s about being present, being where your feet are.”


Last season, LSU defeated Iowa 102-85 when then-junior forward Angel Reese was named the NCAA Tournament’s Most Outstanding Player in the victory. This year in the Elite 8, Clark had 41 points and 12 assists as she would not be denied for a second-straight season.

The second-ranked Hawkeyes topped No. 8 LSU, 94-87, in an NCAA women’s basketball tournament regional final Monday night at MVP Arena.

Iowa will now advance to the Final Four for the second straight season and have yet another intense matchup on the horizon as they get ready to face the University of Connecticut Huskies, who also won on Monday against the USC Trojans.
