It was supposed to be Caitlin Clark vs. Paige Bueckers -- it was so much more





CLEVELAND - Hannah Stuelke stood tall inside against one of the best post players in the country.

Kate Martin took a shot to the nose, left the court to stop the bleeding, shoved tissues inside her nostrils and then came back to score one crucial basket after the next down the stretch.

Gabbie Marshall drew a game-deciding offensive foul after locking down Paige Bueckers all night.

Over and over again, a game billed as Caitlin Clark versus Paige Bueckers turned into something much different.
