However, the scoring prodigy didn’t start the game with the right foot.

Clark went 2 of 13 from the field and 0 of 9 from beyond the three-point line in the first half.

The frustrating personal start and her team’s lax defense that saw Nebraska lead by as many as 13 points had her visibly annoyed.

NCAA fans who were following the game on social media called out Clark’s behavior, often commenting on her tendency to complain after every call that didn’t go Iowa’s way.

Thankfully Hawkeyes’ fans, things turned in their favor in the second half.

Clark scored 30 points in the last two quarters and led her team to a thrilling overtime comeback to grab their third consecutive Big 10 Championship.

The final score of the game was 94-88.

After the game, Clark conceded that this was the toughest competition they had faced in a Big Ten Championship game saying,


“This is definitely the hardest one. …It’s three in a row but it’s by far the hardest. I’m just so proud of our group. … It’s really hard to get to this spot. Nebraska put up a really great fight but I just thought we always responded and always had an answer for them.”

Iowa, who is expected to get the No.1 seed, will find out who will be their first rival in the NCAA tournament on March 17 in a live telecast on ESPN.

The first round of March Madness play will be held on Wednesday, March 20 and Thursday, March 21.
