DONE DEAL : Iowa Hawkeyes land a huge replacement for fantastic superstar Caitlin Clark,

Iowa may never really replace Caitlin Clark, but the Hawkeyes have signed a new transfer who will undoubtedly help compensate for the phenom’s scoring ability.

Lucy Olsen, the nation’s third-leading scorer last season, revealed on Wednesday that she is transferring from Villanova.

‘New beginnings,’ she said on X alongside a photo of herself wearing a Hawkeyes uniform.

Olsen averaged 23.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 3.8 assists for the Wildcats during the 2023-24 campaign.

Her best NCAA Tournament performance came during her sophomore year, when she and her team reached the Sweet 16.

Iowa, meanwhile, won consecutive national championships thanks to Clark’s amazing play, but expectations for the program may shift now that the NCAA’s all-time top scorer has left town.


Clark was a two-time National Women’s Player of the Year, averaging 28.4 points per game over four seasons, with a high of 31.6 this year.
The Indiana Fever selected her as the first overall pick in the WNBA Draft on Monday.

But it isn’t just Clark who has left Iowa.

Kate Martin, a teammate, was taken 18th overall by the Las Vegas Aces, while Gabbie Marshall and Molly Davis, all Hawkeyes guards, have also graduated.

Clark had an unpleasant confrontation with journalist Gregg Doyel during her Fever introduction news conference on Wednesday.

Doyel imitated the former Iowa star’s heart-hands motion before stating, ‘Start doing it to me and we’ll get along great.
