What a player she is.

I am not typically a big women's basketball guy, but this player is on a different level in my opinion, she is hitting cold blooded 3's off transition right in people's faces. And a great ballhandler and finisher.

If Caitlin Clark was a stock, I would recommend BUY.

Never caught a minute of women's basketball but I had to look her up. You aren't lying! Woo her highlights felt like watching Steph. Insane. She's just running circles around everyone.

Bonus points to her for wearing the Kobe Bruce Lee shoes.

I heard her name mentioned and I had to youtube her highlights. Wow....she just might save and elevate the WNBA when she is drafted. Those type of players are unicorns you might see them once in a lifetime.

Not too shabby. Meanwhile dream team LSU not undefeated after 1 game.

Then this from a South Carolina player:

Logo 3. WNBA about to get a good one. I hope this spurs a talent jump for the league.

She had a clutch block too.

Catlin not playing well so far. She turned the ball over on multiple occasions. She's not shooting well. O for 4 6 min into second quarter

Watching this UConn vs Iowa, good close game but why they have these commentators talking the whole time, Jesus, I had to mute them

They are putting some stingy defense on her. She just needs to keep working and tire them out. Great game going in to the fourth on ESPN.

Catlin has come alive in the 4th. Her 3pt shot looks just like Steph's.

How do the NCAAWBB refs manage to make a call on replay in about 5 seconds but the nba takes 3 minutes to review the same play?

Catlin has people who don't watch basketball watching this game. My sister's not into any sport and she's watching.

They don't have Secaucus

Have to wait until Monday to see if SAS rides Molly. She graduated from UConn.

Ridiculous call. Ruined the game.

But not surprised.

Draymond Green could never play women’s basketball

That play was a textbook “Everything I learned about setting screens I learned from Draymond Green”

He does that exact move at least 35-40 times a game

I'm not into conspiracies but that call was bogus as hell. It made it possible to keep Caitlin Clark in the news. TV ratings will go through the roof for the championship game. Like her or not Caitlin put women's basketball on the map. More people watched that game than I can imagine.

Saw the replays online, it was a foul but that’s not something you call on a 1 pt playoff game with 3 secs left

She is the talk now but she is going to the Indiana Fever where she will be forgotten. The REAL talk should be on the LA Sparks who have 2 of the 4 top picks and can draft the Twin Tower duo of Cameron Brink and Kamilla Cardoso. Those two look like they can really play together especially since Brink is so versatile. Cardoso is what Liz Cambage should have been.

She's definitely a game changer for women's hoops. As someone who would havenever, ever considered watching a second of WNBA, I'd probably watch just for her.

Thats pretty much the entire WNBA. Think about all the good players that they hype in women's college basketball from a top program. Their biggest stardom usually comes from leading their team to a national championship. Then their stardom fades because the WNBA as a league has nowhere near the platform that college basketball has. That is pretty much an indictment on the league as a whole.
