ALBANY, N.Y. - Iowa prevailed Monday in a tightly contested battle between two of the most-hyped stars and teams in women's college basketball, as the Hawkeyes took down the defending champion LSU Tigers 94-87 to return to the Final Four.

Led by star guard Caitlin Clark with a game-high 41 points, the No. 1 Hawkeyes pulled ahead in the second half as Clark put up 12 points in the third quarter to help Iowa carry an 11-point lead into the fourth. Clark finished with 12 assists and seven rebounds and shot 13-of-29 from the field, including 9-of-20 from 3.

The No. 3 Tigers opened the game with strong rebounding (with 12 boards in the first compared to Iowa's five), while the Hawkeyes relied on their 3-point shooting, which proved too much for LSU's defense.

The contest marked a rematch of last year's title game, which LSU won 102-85 over Iowa to claim its first national championship. Iowa is seeking its first title and will face the winner of No. 1 USC and No. 3 UConn in the Final Four on Friday.
