Caitlin Clark, an Iowa sensation, steals the show from the logo to the cap 40-…

Even though Caitlin Clark shot the buzzer from the Hawkeyes logo close to midcourt, she knew it was going in.

Her coach also did so.

Lisa Bluder from Iowa remarked, “Caitlin has ice in her veins.” “Everyone is aware of it.”

With a long three-pointer with seconds remaining, Clark demonstrated this once more, giving the No. 4 Hawkeyes a 76-73 victory over Michigan State on Tuesday night. Clark finished with 40 points.

The top scorer in the country, Clark, was just 14 of 34 from the field and went for over 14 minutes at a time in the second and third quarters without scoring. In the last seconds, the Hawkeyes managed to get her the ball, even though it was far from the basket. Clark received a pass from Hannah Stuelke and made a shot from 30 feet as the buzzer went off.

To be honest, I knew it was going in as soon as it left my hand, said Clark.

Behind 15 points apiece from Clark and Stuelke, the Hawkeyes (14-1, 3-0 Big Ten) extended their winning streak to 11 games.

With twenty-two seconds remaining, a layup by DeeDee Hagemann tied the score at 73 for Michigan State (11-3, 1-2). The Hawkeyes worked the clock down following a timeout. After a brief mishap, Stuelke managed to retrieve the ball and deliver it to Clark.

Clark speculated that the difference could have been caused by that bobble.

In the final regular-season game of the previous year, Clark scored a buzzer-beater against Indiana. With her arms extended, she dashed to the other end of the court while the sold-out audience exulted.

Clark remarked, “I almost started laughing.” “I believe that everyone thought, ‘Oh, thank God, it’s over, we don’t have to play overtime.'” Yes, it was unattractive, but in the end, the important thing is that we prevailed.
