Caitlin Clark and the Iowa Hawkeyes are heading back to the Final Four for a second straight year after beating Angel Reese and the LSU Tigers, 94-87, Monday night in a rematch of last year's national championship game.

Clark was her usual dominant self in the victory, scoring 41 points and tying a career best with nine three-pointers.

LSU head coach Kim Mulkey, who surprised a lot of fans with her sideline outfit choice for the game, was in awe of Clark's peformance. She caught up with Clark moments after the final whistle and shared a classy message with the NCAA's all-time leading scorer:

Iowa will face UConn in one of Friday night's national semifinal games in Cleveland.
