DALLAS -- There hasn't been much debate on the best team throughout the 2022-23 women's college basketball season. South Carolina has been the wire-to-wire No. 1, is the defending champion and has an undefeated 36-0 record entering Friday's women's Final Four.
But there's been plenty of debate on the nation's best player, with two totally different types of players leading the conversation. South Carolina's 6-foot-5 Aliyah Boston is the top post player and the anchor of the Gamecocks' defense. Iowa's Caitlin Clark, who has won the Naismith, Wade Trophy and AP player of the year awards in the past two days, is the college game's best point guard and 3-point threat.
