      @@LaLa2time I don't think you have a clue with what you're saying. He is talking about the coach. She doesn't taunt anyone. There was just trash talk which goes on in every game. If you're talking about last year's game against S.C., the only thing that took place was Caitlin daring a player to put up a 3 because she couldn't do it. She wasn't even close to her, but the other 8 players on the court were all mixed up under the basket. Their weakness was their inability to shoot the 3. They've obviously changed that since a year ago, and if you want to talk about taunting, do you remember what Angel Reese did last year?? That was more than just taunting. We evened that score this year, but there was no taunting that went on after we beat them. Only Angel crying about being sexualized among a few other things after last year's tourney.

    I’m a 65-year-old guy from Central Mississippi, who has never kept up with women’s basketball. But I’ve been a fan of Iowa for the last few weeks at least, and really pretty much since last year. That being said, there’s several reasons for that, they are very talented. They play with a lot of heart, that speaks volumes to me, but also even more than that is they play with a very good attitude. As a Christian, that’s very important to me and I will continue to be an Iowa fan, though I’m an Ole Miss football fan and have been all my life. Hold your heads up, and God bless you!

    The thing I noticed that I believe was the game changer was the fact SC has 9 players that could rotate in and were all good. Iowa only had 6-7 at most and 3 of the starters played the entire game. When you can rotate players and keep them fresh it makes a huge impact and that is what showed in the 4th qtr...the Iowa girls were gassed and SC was still rotating players. Iowa give SC the best game they faced all year. But also, when a team has 4 players as big as SC did it is almost impossible to defend on the inside. Cordosa and Kitts were just so hard to out rebound and even defend on post ups. I think Iowa played damn good given they were at a disadvantage in height and depth.

      @darchon5 หลายเดือนก่อน +3

      Good post OP, and to add to that, here's the reason that SC has so much depth from those 9 players, compared to Iowa:
      - SC: 8 5-stars, 1 4-star; class rankings: #2, 4, 5, 11, 12, 13, 14, 17, 25
      - Iowa: 1 5-star, 3 4-stars; #4, 45, 71, 92
      Iowa's always at a big disadvantage vs other top teams with recruits/transfers and has to make do, and they usually do. They overcome a lot usually, but these teams aren't at SC level of talent, coaching, or simply just as a team in general:
      - UConn: 5 5-stars; #1, 5, 6, 15, 23
      - LSU: 4 5-stars, 3 4-stars; #2, 2, 7, 7, 26, 58

    I was watching Caitlin Clark her senior year in high school. I was so happy when she decided to stay at Iowa and play for her home team. So many kids wanna go where they think it's automatic to win a title. Caitlin kept her talents at home. I told some close friends and my brother that this girl would rock the world with her shooting/scoring skills. I loved this girl from her first game at Iowa to her last game today. I knew she was gonna be great and she ended up with All the records. I never dreamed Iowa would make it to back to back championship games. She helped make this team a "great" team. In my opinion she is the best offensive player of all time and in the top 5 of the greatest players ever in women's basketball. Thank you Coach Lisa Bluder for how greatly you handled this amazing record breaking talent in Caitlin Clark !Thank you Caitlin Clark for 4 years of greatness as an Iowa Hawkeye who stuck with her home team and helped make them great! LOVE THE WHOLE IOWA TEAM AND ALL THE COACHES! CLASS ACT

      she didn’t change anything. Pulling up from 30 ft as a go to offensive strategy does not translate to winning a championship. She’s a great shooter but still needs to learn, pick your spots and know when to take the bombs. And she needs more poise in the moment. She’s still young, and has room to grow.

With less than 10 seconds left on the clock, Iowa put in their only starter who hadn't played since tearing her Patellar Tendon on March 4th when we defeated #2 Ohio State. We were hoping she would at least get a chance to touch the ball, but that didn't happen, and I'd rather not risk making her injury any worse. Her collegiate basketball is over. Seeing her come into the game, even though it was just to let her say she got in the championship game made me so happy that I wasn't even slightly upset that we lost. We knew going in that we probably didn't stand a chance, but our ladies still did a good job. Remember that last year, in the final 4, Iowa defeated S.C., ruining their undefeated record, making them start all over again this year, and they deserved this win. I was pissed as hell after what happened with Angel Reese's antics at the end of the championship game last year, and the fact that she chased Caitlin around the arena pointing to that ring finger, and now that we beat them in the Elite 8, that was the sweetest victory of the entire tournament but it also felt sweet to beat UCONN. We didn't expect that win either. As many complaints as there were about how that game ended, we've been in those shoes but the video doesn't lie. So you can laugh all you want, it honestly doesn't bother me, and if you see the post-game presser, Caitlin isn't crying, nobody really is, and on Sportscenter, Dawn Staley handed out a HUGE compliment to Caitlin. So another time you might find me sad or mad, but not today.

Iowa had 3 bench players who couldn't have slowed SC down. Hopefully our recruits bring some height in with them and our veterans can teach them what they know when it comes to Hawkeye basketball. Time will tell. I'm still proud of what our girls did. It was something that 349 other D1 teams would have LOVED to have done just once, but twice would have truly been epic.

    I’ve been attending Iowa womens BB games for 20 years, because the product they put on the court has always been excellent. This is due to coach Bluder’s leadership in collecting a bunch of skilled but mostly ordinary midwestern girls and creating teams that can compete on a national level. She’s been doing for decades with amazing consistency, without seeking attention but with impeccable sportsmanship, with no scandals or controversies, and with unwavering loyalty to her home state and her program. She takes in girls and after 4 years she graduates women ready to contribute to our society in so many ways, based on values that will serve them for life. They used to call her girls “Bluder’s bunch”, although I haven’t heard that in a while.
    Let’s take a moment to appreciate Coach Bluder and her staff for the body of work they built in Iowa - the recent and spectacular success is the culmination of their efforts over the decades and wouldn’t have happened without them.

    As they say the team is a reflection of their coach. LSU coaches players that are cocky when they win and are poor sports when they lose. UConn will never be confused with humble and have that air of arrogance and smugness like their coach. South Carolina has a team that has fun and plays loose because their coach. Iowa was a team that was easy to like. Tough, gritty, classy built with one five star recruit and the rest threes. Not the most talented bunch but got the most out of their talent.

      She didn't do ANYTHING to Van Lith or any other player from ANY OTHER TEAM. She did it to her coaches, and they "got it". She had done it before. The ONLY thing that went on with Van Lith was some trash talk to Clark, and she shot back with "shut up, you're down by 15". Nothing more. As for "Raven", is she the one who was behind the arc and Clark dared her to put up the shot? Everyone else was jammed up in the lane because everyone from both teams knew she wouldn't take the shot. It's called watching game film before you play a team. That's how they knew she wouldn't take the shot and Iowa beat S.C. This year S.C. had a 6'7 and a 6'5" player. A little hard to beat when you can't shoot over the tree limbs. S.C. is freaking good.

    note to journalists,
    in a press conference like this, when you have the once in a lifetime opportunity (in this case, Caitlyn's final game presser); do not squander your one question on leading question. That is to say, a question which isn't designed to get information, rather, to get quotes for the article you've already written.
    why does every question have to be about legacy or future?
    Why not:::? her favorite favorite moment in the tournament or her career? Why not her favorite color, movie or food?
    Or Maybe you want to put her on the spot and ask her which opposing player in the tournament is hardest to guard, or who guarded her the best.
    Who her favorite WNBA player is?
    What, not including her team or university, will she miss most about the state of IOWA?
    while all of those things are inane in their own right; at least they would generate interest. There's not a whole lot more boring than watching single-minded people reword the exact same single-minded questions.
