It can’t be considered too much of a surprise that former Iowa star Caitlin Clark is headed to the Indiana Fever. The star guard was selected No. 1 overall by Indiana in the 2024 WNBA Draft.

Clark is coming off a record-setting college performance for the Hawkeyes. She’s the first collegiate player in history, men or women’s, to put up 3,000 career points and 1,000 career assists. Clark is also the career leader in points scored among college basketball players. She’s also coming off a 2023-24 season in which Clark put up the most points in single-season college basketball history.

  • Caitlin Clark stats (2023-24): 31.6 PPG, 7.4 RPG, 8.9 APG, 46% shooting, 38% 3-point

While Clark was unable to lead her Hawkeyes past South Carolina in the National Championship Game, her college career is among the best ever. Her ability to lift up the women’s game can’t go unnoticed either.
