In a battle with Iowa's Caitlin Clark, UConn guard Paige Bueckers flirted with a triple-double to help lead the Huskies to a 92-72 win over the Hawkeyes.

The Hopkins grad continued her stellar tournament putting up 17 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds to help the Huskies reach the Elite Eight for the 15th consecutive year.

Bueckers was joined by junior Christyn Williams, who poured in 27 points for the Huskies. While Clark had 21 points, Bueckers won the battle of the freshmen, however, helping lead a late charge after the Hawkeyes brought the lead down to 74-65 in the second half.

Bueckers and the Huskies will face the winner of the Michigan/Baylor matchup on Monday.
