“Is There a Bigger Sports Star in the Country Right Now?” ESPN on Caitlin Clark

This great story must be told.  We all need to see American greatness.  Here it is.

Caitlin Clark set the NCAA Women’s record for scoring last night for a career and shattered the mark by the end of the night.  ESPN shared:

Through Title IX and the courageous efforts of so many, women’s sports have not only grown, but thrived. Whether it’s Diana Taurasi, Sue Bird, Chamique Holdsclaw, Lisa Leslie, Maya Moore, Sabrina IonescuBreanna StewartKelsey Plum and countless others, women’s basketball is now mainstream and at its apex of popularity.

Yet, with all of those great players of the past, we have never seen anything quite like the phenomenon that is Iowa‘s Caitlin Clark.

Clark is now the all-time scoring champion of NCAA women’s basketball. She is the most exciting and recognizable college basketball player in the country. Period. Men or women. Her games sell out, at home and on the road. Every sports fan knows her. Every. Single. One. Yet, the responsibility of carrying the women’s game doesn’t seem to faze her one bit.

She is not the Pete Maravich or Steph Curry of women’s basketball, she is a singular star in American culture, having cut her own trailblazing path along with the likes of Ann Meyers, Nancy Lieberman, Cynthia Cooper-Dyke and others.
