Iowa, USC battle in women’s basketball rankings as Caitlin Clark, JuJu Watkins prepare for March Madness

The Iowa Hawkeyes and USC Trojans are expected to be No. 1 seeds when the 2024 Women’s NCAA Tournament bracket is revealed on Sunday evening. The show is at 8 p.m. Eastern, 5 p.m. in Los Angeles. Caitlin Clark and JuJu Watkins are getting ready for March Madness. With the Big Dance almost here, Iowa and USC are very close in the national rankings.

Hawkeyes Wire has more on this story:

According to the polls, Iowa comes in at No. 2 in the nation. According to CBS Sports and their final regular season power rankings, the Hawkeyes are slotted down just one row to No. 3 in America with an upstart team jumping them at No. 2.”


“Iowa can’t move down. They did their job winning the Big Ten Tournament and locking up a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament thanks to efforts from all over the place. Ahead of Iowa at No. 2 in the rankings are the young, confident, and dangerous USC Trojans.”

Is USC better than Iowa? Hawkeyes Wire joins us in saying we would absolutely love to see these two teams meet at the Final Four in Cleveland in April. Then we would get to find out.

Both teams have a lot of work to do until then. Winning four games against quality competition will not be easy.
