Before you make any Iowa vs. LSU picks or 2023 Women's NCAA Championship predictions, you NEED to see what women's college basketball experts Calvin Wetzel and Aaron Barzilai have to say.
Barzilai is a Ph.D. from Stanford who served as Director of Basketball Analytics for the Philadelphia 76ers. Five years ago, he founded HerHoopStats.com -- a groundbreaking website that unlocks insights about the women's game. Wetzel, the site's lead betting writer, incorporates his mathematical background and strong knowledge of women's hoops to turn the site's prediction model into picks.
Barzilai and Wetzel went 590-430 overall (+127.40 units) during the 2021-22 women's college basketball campaign and posted a 406-255-5 record (+768.81 units) this past season. They also finished the WNBA regular season with a 54-44 mark in 2022. Anyone who has followed them has seen huge returns.
The experts know Clark has been almost impossible to stop all season. The National Player of the Year has had a hand in 48 points in all five tournament games. She scored or assisted on every point in the fourth quarter Friday to propel Iowa past the champs. She also had six rebounds and eight assists. Monika Czinano scored 18 points as the Hawkeyes shot 49% from the field and hit seven 3-pointers.
Barzilai and Wetzel also know the Tigers have a more balanced offense. Reese and Alexis Morris combined for 51 points Friday, and LaDazhia Williams chipped in 16. Reese had her 33rd double-double of the season to tie a Division I record. The Tigers outscored the Hokies 29-13 in the fourth quarter. LSU also is strong on defense and has held every NCAA Tournament opponent under 40% shooting from the field.
