US college sensation Caitlin Clark drops 41 points to lead Iowa past LSU Tigers

NEW YORK – US women's college basketball sensation Caitlin Clark scored 41 points as the University of Iowa avenged their defeat over Louisiana State University in last year's national championship showdown with a 94-87 victory on Monday (Tuesday Manila time).

Clark, the all-time leading scorer in the history of collegiate basketball, produced a stunning exhibition of long-range shooting to lead the Hawkeyes into the final four of the tournament known as March Madness.

The 22-year-old prodigy, who is playing her final season of college basketball before heading into the WNBA, drained nine 3-pointers with a scintillating performance at the MVP Arena in Albany, New York.

Clark set the tone for an absorbing battle against old rival Angel Reese after nailing the opening score of the night with a trademark three-pointer.

LSU star Reese threatened to end Clark's college career on a downbeat note after helping the Tigers rally back from an early 12-4 deficit to open up an eight-point lead in the second quarter.

But Clark led a stirring Iowa fightback to help level the score 45-45 at half-time before cutting loose after the restart to help the Hawkeyes surge into a 11-point 69-58 lead at the end of third quarter.

Scoring spree
Clark rattled in four of her three-pointers in the third quarter to help take the game away from LSU and stay on track for a fairytale ending to her collegiate career.

"I think just confidence, being confident in all the work that I put in, trusting my team-mates," Clark said of her third quarter scoring spree.

"We knew it was going to be physical but we weathered every storm. But you've got to give them a lot of credit they had a great year."

Reese's night ended in disappointment, meanwhile with the LSU star
