In a thrilling NCAA championship game, Kamilla Cardoso led South Carolina to a perfect season with an 87-75 victory over Caitlin Clark and the Iowa Hawkeyes. Cardoso’s 15 points and career-high 17 rebounds propelled South Carolina to become the 10th Division I team to finish a season undefeated. Despite Clark’s record-breaking performance, scoring 30 points and becoming the leading scorer in NCAA Division I history, Iowa fell short in their quest for a championship. South Carolina’s victory solidifies their status as the latest dynasty in women’s basketball, with Coach Dawn Staley joining an elite group of coaches with three national championships. The Gamecocks’ impressive depth, rebounding advantage, and improved shooting from behind the arc were key factors in their championship win, capping off a historic season.

UConn’s basketball team, under Coach Dan Hurley, clinched a commanding 75-60 victory over Purdue, securing their second consecutive NCAA championship and sixth overall title. Tristen Newton’s 20 points led the Huskies in a defensive showcase against Purdue’s strong offense, limiting them to just one 3-point shot made. UConn’s remarkable tournament run, winning all six games by double-digit margins, cements their status as a powerhouse in college basketball. Coach Hurley’s strategic defensive plan and the team’s depth played crucial roles in their championship victory, marking an era of dominance in the sport.
