No. 1 seed Iowa, paced by star guard Caitlin Clark, will begin its NCAA Women's Tournament run Saturday, when the Hawkeyes face off against Holy Cross in opening-round action.

Iowa accumulated a 29-4 (15-3 Big Ten) record throughout the 2023-24 season, and it won the Big Ten Tournament earlier this month by defeating Nebraska in overtime.

Clark, who's already declared for the 2024 WNBA Draft, is one of the biggest stories of this year's NCAA Women's Tournament. The Hawkeyes star has embarked on a truly historic season as she set the record for career points scored. This year, Clark has put together averages of 31.9 points, 8.9 assists, and 7.3 rebounds while shooting 38.1% from beyond the arc.

Holy Cross, meanwhile, won the Patriot League Tournament title as the No. 1 seed. The Crusaders closed the season strong with four straight wins, including a roll through the conference tournament to claim the automatic berth. Holy Cross then dispatched of UT-Martin with ease in the First Four. Now, it gets easily its biggest test of the season in trying to figure out how to slow down Clark and the Hawkeyes' potent offense.

The Hawkeyes will be looking to get their NCAA Women's Tournament run started on the right foot against the Crusaders on Saturday afternoon. The winner of Saturday's game will take on the winner of No. 8 seed West Virginia and No. 9 seed Princeton on Monday.
