Caitlin Clark brushes off WNBA star’s race remark, says more ‘opportunities’ will help elevate women’s game

UNCASVILLE, Conn. – A number of women’s college basketball players have developed into household names long before they entered the WNBA draft. Caitlin Clark, the former Iowa Hawkeyes star and the current NCAA’s all-time leading scorer, is among the most well known

Fans have showed up and tuned in to see Clark even before she was selected first overall by the Indiana Fever in last month’s WNBA Draft. Her rise in stardom has undoubtedly contributed to the increased focus on women’s basketball

“I think there’s opportunities for every single player in women’s basketball,” Clark said at a press conference before her WNBA debut on Tuesday night. “I think the more opportunities we can give across the board, that’s what’s going to elevate women’s basketball.”

Her remarks were in response to a question about Las Vegas Aces star A’ja Wilson, who recently told The Associated Press that she believes there is a race element tied into Clark’s popularity. 

“I think it’s a huge thing. I think a lot of people may say it’s not about Black and White, but to me, it is,” Wilson told the AP over the weekend.
