Iowa ran into a hot LSU team today and lost the championship game. LSU hit an amazing 74% versus the normal 19% in a recent game giving them a large lead even though Iowa shortened the gap in the third quarter.
Have you ever heard of Iowa Nice? Angel Reese should have been penalized for taunting Caitlin Clark when she pointed to the ring she marked on her finger. The Iowa girls wouldn’t act like that and they didn’t spend hours on false eyelashes, heavy makeup and hair extensions.
It is what it is – I’m very disappointed but Iowa has such a great coach in Lisa Bluder who didn’t scream at the refs to call fouls on the opposing team. I would have been embarrassed by her behavior if she had acted in that manner. LSU is a very talented team – very tall and aggressive but that’s how one wins a championship.
Congratulations to the Iowa Hawkeyes and Caitlin Clark! You’re all winners in my eyes!
I couldn’t even tell you what mens teams are playing tomorrow night – I’ve had a one track mind with the women’s tourney.
It’s Palm Sunday – I’m off to church tonight for a community Lenten service.
