DALLAS -- LSU guard Alexis Morris said Saturday she thought it was "disrespectful" the way the Iowa Hawkeyes dared the South Carolina guards to make their shots in Iowa's Final Four victory, saying the Hawkeyes would have to play the Tigers differently in the national championship game.

Iowa decided to shut down the paint in its 77-73 upset win over the No. 1 Gamecocks, and the plan worked. In particular, the Hawkeyes focused on letting point guard Raven Johnson try and beat them. In one clip that has made its way around social media, Iowa's Caitlin Clark is seen disregarding Johnson with a flick of her wrist and stepping back -- essentially leaving Johnson completely unguarded.
