In a nail-biting encounter, Caitlin Clark and the top-seeded Iowa team narrowly escaped the clutches of West Virginia on Monday night, securing their spot in the Sweet 16 amidst intense pressure. Despite facing a formidable challenge, Clark’s sheer determination steered Iowa to a hard-fought 64-54 victory over West Virginia in a thrilling second-round NCAA tournament showdown at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
