Caitlin Clark Heads to WNBA, Leaves Mark on College Basketball

Iowa’s basketball sensation, Caitlin Clark, has officially announced her entry into the 2024 WNBA Draft, signaling the end of a remarkable college career that saw her shatter the NCAA women’s scoring record. With one regular-season game still ahead and the NCAA tournament on the horizon, Clark is focused on guiding her team to further success before turning professional.

The Indiana Fever, holding the first pick for the second year running, are expected to select Clark, pairing her with 2023’s top pick, Aliyah Boston. This move promises to establish a dynamic duo capable of steering the Fever towards a bright future.

Clark, opting to leave with a year of eligibility unused, embarks on her professional journey at 22. Her collegiate tenure is distinguished not only by her scoring prowess but also by her leadership in bringing the Hawkeyes to the brink of a national championship in 2023.

Amassing an average of 32.2 points per game in her final season, Clark’s offensive output has been nothing short of historic. She is on the verge of surpassing Pete Maravich’s NCAA scoring record for both men and women—a milestone she is expected to reach in the upcoming game against Ohio State.

As Clark prepares to transition to the WNBA, her legacy at Iowa and in NCAA basketball will undoubtedly be remembered for years to come.
