The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Marc Lawrence, — The women’s Final Four in Dallas tonight will feature the most anticipated matchup of the season: the South Carolina Gamecocks and the Iowa Hawkeyes.

The game could easily set a record for the most-watched women’s semifinal in the past decade — and top the 2013 Notre Dame-UConn matchup that drew three million viewers. It could even set a new record.

It will be a showdown between the best defensive and offensive programs that women’s college basketball offers.

South Carolina’s Aliyah Boston has a resume that’s too long to list — but highlights include the 2022 Naismith Defensive Player of the Year and multiple overall Player of the Year accolades.

Iowa’s Caitlyn Clark is a Naismith Player of the Year finalist and the first men’s or women’s player to post a 40-point triple-double in the NCAA tournament.

Skyrocketing ratings during recent Final Fours, no matter the matchup, makes this must-see TV. LSU and Virginia Tech, which makes its first appearance, will battle in the other semifinal on this evening
