Iowa vs. South Carolina live scores, updates: Kaitlyn Clark breaks NCAA Tournament scoring record

we are here. It's a game for the ages for the national championship. The best player in the country, Iowa State's Kaitlyn Clark, faces off against the best team in the country: undefeated South Carolina.

In a season where so much history has been made, including Clark's scoring records and multiple TV viewing accomplishments, this game feels like the perfect way to end a memorable season.

It's a rematch of last year's Final Four, where Iowa State upset then-undefeated South Carolina. The Gamecocks (37-0) have not lost since despite a mostly revamped starting lineup.

Similar to last year is Clark, who earned her second straight Naismith National Player of the Year Award as she works her way through the record books this season. Sunday will mark the final game of her historic college career, but can she really be considered the GOAT if she doesn't win the tournament?

Her Hawkeyes came up short in last year's national title game against LSU. They have their chance at redemption, while the Gamecocks have a chance to finish a perfect season.

You couldn't script it any better, so tune in throughout the day as we track the action in Cleveland.
