The South Carolina Gamecocks and Iowa Hawkeyes won their Final Four matchups and are set to face off in the 2024 women’s national championship in Cleveland on Sunday, April 7.

Many commentators and social media users were quick to criticize the referees in the NCAA semifinal featuring Caitlin Clark and Iowa versus UConn on Friday night, saying they got in the way of the two teams battling it out in the final seconds by calling an offensive foul on UConn's Aaliyah Edwards.

Upon further review, the internet does not agree.

"That call sucked," said ESPN analyst and former Tennessee player Andraya Carter.

"Now that final play, it's not about the Iowa defense, it's about the call that the referee made," Carter added. "Maybe there was a slight lean, maybe Aaliyah Edwards' elbow was slightly out, but, to be honest, the calls weren't even on both sides."
