Don’t look now Caitlin Clark fans. Social media is convinced that the Iowa vs. UConn Final Four game was “rigged” in favor of the Hawkeyes following a controversial finish in a thrilling back-and-forth affair.

The Huskies were trailing by just one point with less than 10 seconds to go as they moved up the court into Iowa territory, looking for the game-winning basket. Aaliyah Edwards tried to set a screen, but the officials called an offensive foul which resulted in a change of possession:

The controversial call led to Caitlin Clark getting fouled, and she made one of two free throws to increase the lead to two. Though she missed the second free throw, the Hawkeyes regained possession and were able to drain the clock for a 71-69 win to punch their ticket to the finals.

Unfortunately, the questionable call will remain a key talking point for years to come, even though this will go down as one of the greatest games in history. The NCAA doesn’t want to hear this, but plenty of fans took to X/Twitter and accused them of “rigging” the game for Iowa:

With the victory, Iowa reaches the National Championship Game for the second straight year. A year ago, they lost to Angel Reese’s LSU Tigers by a final score of 102-85. Iowa, of course, would get a nice piece of revenge by eliminating LSU in the Elite 8.

Iowa will meet South Carolina in the National Championship Game on Sunday.

Caitlin Clark & Iowa Get A Chance At Redemption

The all-time leading scorer in NCAA basketball has a near-perfect resume. The only thing missing is a national championship, and now Caitlin Clark will get the chance to win it once and for all in what will be her last college game.

Clark previously announced that she’s headed to the WNBA, and the 22-year-old is a virtual lock to go first overall to the Indiana Fever, who own the top selection.
