Tickets to see Caitlin Clark in metro Dallas pricier than those for Taylor Swift
Clark said she hopes the pop star will attend the Iowa women’s basketball title game vs. LSU Sunday afternoon before her concert in Arlington Sunday night
DALLAS — When is the last time a sports team from Iowa has competed for a national championship before a television audience of millions?
That’s a big “never.” Our state has been flyover country when it comes to the big kahunas.
That changes at 2:30 p.m. Sunday when the University of Iowa women’s basketball team plays Louisiana State for the NCAA championship on ABC.
Singer-songwriter megastar Taylor Swift has the last of three straight nights of concerts Sunday evening at AT&T Stadium in nearby Arlington. Iowa player Caitlin Clark isn’t in Swift’s stratosphere of popularity, but she’s soaring high herself after scoring 41 points in the Hawkeyes’ 77-73 upset win over top-ranked South Carolina in Friday’s semifinals here.
“(Swift) should stay for the game tomorrow,” Clark said Saturday. “How about that?”
If that happened, American Airlines Center might be one of the few venues in the nation in which Swift wouldn’t get top billing.

On StubHub.com Saturday, the least-expensive tickets for Swift’s Sunday extravaganza were $393 as of 3:30 p.m. For Iowa-LSU, they were $428.
Clark, by the way, said she has tickets to see Swift in June when Swift’s tour is in the Midwest.
