"In 1984, 26 schools in Iowa, mainly larger schools, switched to 5-on-5, and after the 1994 state tournament the 6-on-6 game was discontinued. Forty years later, Caitlin Clark—a product of the current Iowa girl’s basketball program—was dribbling like crazy, knocking down rainbow threes, and just plain driving her opponents nuts."

This phrasing is a little odd. The "Forty years later" is correct if referencing the 1984 switching to 5-on-5, but is off by a decade if using the 1994 state tournament discontinuing.
