It’s official, Caitlin Clark is now more popular than LeBron James.


Well, at least for this week.

"Our social squad ran an updated map for Caitlin vs. King, and the queen from Iowa reigns supreme. More than 270,000 tweets were tracked," BetOnline revealed.

And here’s the raw data:
The state breakdown is as follows:

Caitlin Clark - 31 states
LeBron James - 19 states


Caitlin Clark and the Hawkeyes take on Colorado in the Sweet 16 Saturday where they are currently 7-point favorites.

Colorado will have to figure out a way to slow down the NCAA's Division 1 career scoring leader, Clark.  Iowa beat Colorado last time these two teams met, 87-77.  Clark had 31 points and eight assists in the victory.

“They are the same team, but they also have added some new pieces or added some new dimensions to their game,” Colorado coach JR Payne said. “Playing Iowa is very similar in that regard, very similar to what they were, but also added some new things, as well, so similar approach. A little bit of both.”
