  • Good topic choice and well done overall. Be sure to keep replying.

  • I think that Iowa can go all the way to the championship if they keep playing like they are right now. Me personally I like Caitlin Clark as a player and I don't think she is overrated because time and time again she keeps performing spectacularly.

  • I think it would be very cool if Iowa went to win the national champion ship. Before reading this I did not know Catlin Clark, but after reading this, like how most forum posts go, I am interested and have learned a lot. I do not know enough to know if she is overrated or not but I think that is kinda of mean to say about someone.

  • If I am being honest, I do not watch much, if any, women's basketball, or basketball in general, but I do not think that she is overrated at all. She is constantly making the news headlines for breaking some crazy record, or something else along those lines. I hope that Iowa could win it all, seeing as I live here. 

  • I do not think that Iowa is going to win the championship, but I think that they can. I do like Caitlin Clark because there is no other player like her right now. I do not think that she is overrated because she has a crazy game every other night.

  • Clark is a very talented basketball player. I think that she plays a lot like Steph Curry. She can make deep shots from beyond the arc and has incredible passing capabilities. She 100% deserved to win player of the year.

  • I don't watch much basketball, but I do think Iowa will have a chance at winning. I'm unsure if Caitlin is "overrated", but I assume she is just because she's highly talked about right now. Like I stated,I don't watch much basketball so I don't know what my favorite team would be, but I do watch a lot of the Iowa state games so I guess that would be one.

  • I do think that they will go to the championship. The way that catlin has been playing I strongly believe they will go to the championship. I do like catlin she is a very good basketball player. I dont think she is overated because if you drop 40- points and a triple double in college. 

  • I do not think that Iowa will go all the way and win the national champion ship, just because statistically, they just aren't the better team. But, they have a chance if they play hard. And personally, I like Catilin Clark, because she is a fantastic basketball player, and I do not think she is overrated. I don't personally like Iowa, I like Iowa state, but Catilin Clark is a good player.

  • I personally don't think that Iowa will make it all the way to the championship, because they will have to face South Carolina in the final four. And South Carolina is undefeated with thirty-four wins. I personally like Catlin Clark and don't think she is overrated, especially since she just is the first person to ever have a 40-point triple-double in march madness.
