A Closer Look At Caitlin Clark & The Hawkeyes vs The Holy Cross Crusaders Round 1 Women’s March Madness Matchup

Alright basketball fans, it’s time to get hyped for an epic NCAA Tournament showdown between the powerhouse Iowa Hawkeyes and the 38.5-point underdog Holy Cross Crusaders!

Bet Against Caitlin Clark & The Iowa Hawkeyes At Your Own Peril

Folks, let me tell you about the absolute masterpiece that Caitlin Clark just painted against Nebraska! The Hawkeye superstar was straight up unguardable, completely unstoppable, torching the Cornhuskers for 34 points of pure brilliance in Iowa’s 94-89 overtime thriller.

Clark was cookin’ with that sweet stroke, pulling up from deep and burying triple after triple in defenders’ eye sockets. But she wasn’t just raining bombs from the parking lot – this woman was getting buckets from everywhere on the floor. Silky smooth pull-ups, acrobatic finishes at the rim, you name it!

And that’s not even mentioning her absolutely unconscious handle that had Nebraska’s defense twisted into pretzels all game long. Seriously, defenders were stumbling all over the court just trying to stay in front of her.

When the game was on the line in OT, there was no uncertainty over who was getting the rock. Clark seized the moment like the true killer she is, calmly draining dagger after dagger to seal the win for the Hawks.

I’m telling you, guys – Caitlin Clark is the absolute truth on the hardwood. Get your popcorn ready because when this woman laces ’em up, she’s going to have you jumping out of your seat in sheer amazement all night long. Strap in and get ready for some more fireworks from the Hawkeye Superstar!



Holy Cross’ Monumental Underdog Odds

On the other hand, Holy Cross took care of business against UT Martin with a 72-45 blowout victory paced by Cara McCormack’s 23-point outburst. The Crusaders will need that kind of offensive firepower and then some to try and pull off the monumental upset.

For Iowa, they’ve been an absolute scoring juggernaut averaging a ridiculous 92.8 points per game. That’s a whopping 37 more than what the stingy Holy Cross defense typically allows. When the Hawkeyes top 56 points, they’re 29-4 – that’s how prolific this offense is.

But Holy Cross can certainly get buckets too at 62.7 per game. And when they eclipse 72 points, they’re a perfect 6-1 this season. They’ll need to be dialed in from deep though against Iowa’s barrage of three-point shooting.

I can assure that all eyes will be on Caitlin Clark’s potential triple-double watch. The Hawkeye superstar averages over 30 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists per game. She’s borderline unstoppable, hitting over 5 threes a game at a crisp 38% clip. Can Holy Cross find any answers for her offensive wizardry?

Calling this game a David versus Goliath would entertain the idea the Holy Cross has a shot at coming close to winning. The only question really is can the Crusaders cover the 38.5-point spread as first round March Madness underdogs? The hair on the back of my neck is tingling with the thought.
