Caitlin Clark: Will skip final season of college eligibility

This week, I had the privilege of witnessing your performance in person. I took my 5-year-old daughter to Williams Arena in Minneapolis, where I currently reside with my wife and two daughters.

The smiles extend from the coaching offices to the ticket department. However, let’s shift our focus to a different group to gauge the impact of Caitlin Clark.

Clark has emerged as a central figure in women’s basketball, showcasing her impressive skills and 3-point shooting, often from the on-court logo.

It has been a remarkable season for Clark, who now boasts 3,650 career points and recently surpassed Kelsey Plum for the NCAA women’s scoring record.

While many players might have been benched for attempting shots from such long distances, Clark had the approval from her coach and has excelled while also assisting her teammates and grabbing rebounds.

The Hawkeyes started the week ranked No. 6 in the nation and in second place in the Big Ten, with only one game left in the regular season.

She attracts crowds and fills arenas when the Hawkeyes visit. Clark still had another year of eligibility left if she chose to utilize it.

The landscape has shifted significantly in the past three years due to the NCAA lifting its ban on NIL, according to Victor Matheson, an economics professor at the College of the Holy Cross specializing in sports.

We played basketball during that era. They simply refuse to acknowledge it, which is detrimental to the rest of us who were active participants at that time. There is no valid reason why that should not be considered the authentic record.

Amaya Battle scored 18 points for the Gophers (15-13, 5-12) in a challenging game while attempting to defend the reigning AP Player of the Year Clark, who went 8 for 14 from beyond the arc to thrill the crowd of over 14,000 predominantly Hawkeyes fans at Williams Arena.

I recall watching a VHS tape featuring a documentary on Michael Jordan and being captivated by his skills. Subsequently, I watched Space Jam and joined my middle school basketball team.
