Social media reacts to No. 2 Iowa women’s basketball handing over a win to Nebraska

Alright … this reactions article changed.

The story was simple. Caitlin Clark was doing her thing being the best collegiate basketball player on the planet. With each shot, it looked as though we were about to witness history: a new all-time scoring leader for NCAA women’s basketball.

Instead, Iowa (22-3, 11-2 Big Ten) ends up dropping a really bad one to the Cornhuskers. An unacceptable defeat.

Iowa was the better team for about 85% of this game. It controlled pretty much all areas of play through three quarters. Then, you saw a massive shift in the team on offense.

To keep Clark’s record-setting basket at home against Michigan on Thursday, the Hawkeyes went away from her. But the other players’ shots were not falling. Iowa completely took itself out of the game against Nebraska and cost itself a win.

Now, should there be more blame placed on the rest of the team for not stepping up? Absolutely. But, this is kind of how it goes for Iowa. When everything’s going well, Clark’s support cast can do really well playing off of her. And then you have games like Sunday’s where it’s seemingly a one versus five effort.

Everything about this loss is extremely frustrating, and none of it should have happened. Here’s the social media reactions:
