Caitlin Clark


And she did it, simply amazing. She will get close to Pistol's record as well.
She will easily pass it. iirc she needs 99 points.
Pistol only played 3 years with no 3 point line so it isn't exactly apples to apples but that doesn't really matter. She will hold the record and thats all that matters. Incredible.

There are only 3 more regular season games left and she averages about 30ppg. It will be close.
 
bro wtf. Get her in the NBA. That shot is butter. You dont even see Steph/Dame pulling it like that from that range.

She needed 7pts to break the record and ended up scoring her team's first 8 pts of the game. She wanted to get the record out of the way so that it didn't effect her team's performance. Then she goes out and breaks the record on that shot, are you kidding me? She really is amazing.

WNBA really needs to figure out how to market these college stars better once they get in the league. IDK how much potential there is in women's professional sports, but they can do a lot better than they are currently doing.
 
She’s got to be the most popular college athlete right now. She’s incredible to watch and has to potential to put her sport on the map. Hopefully the WNBA does a good job with her. They have a potential Serena Williams on their hands.


PS: For any Utah local, Alyssa Pili is also a dominant player. Fun to watch.

Oh thanks for the info. I thought there was like 10 left. Would tourney games count towards the total?

This probably says something about us as a society but Caitlin Clark isn't even close to being the most popular college athlete. AFAIK, the current title holder is LSU gymnast Olivia Dunne whose NIL value is over $3.5 million. By comparison, Caitlin Clark's NIL value is around $800k.

That doesnt equate to popularity. It equates to marketability. Not the same thing.

Sex sells. Clark isnt "sexy" (to most) and Dunne is.

I don't disagree that Dunne has higher marks because she is a smoke show while Clark is mid, but by every metric of popularity, Dunne has higher marks. ...because she is hot ...because our society puts a higher value on how hot a girl is than how well a girl can play basketball. You can condemn society but you can't back up your claims of Clark being more popular to our society than is Dunne. Olivia Dunne is objectively (pun intended) more popular than Caitlin Clark.

Provide these metrics you have access to

by that metric, Caitlyn Clark ranks below COVID in popularity.

Caitlyn Clark had a moment, and she had another one when Sheryl Swoopes said she was overrated, and then Caitlyn Clark got mentioned again when Sheryl Swoopes insisted that her earlier overrated claims weren't due to Sheryl Swoopes being racist because Black people can't be racist. Controversy, especially controversy with a racial aspect, drives the metrics you posted but it doesn't result in popularity.

Sound mad cuz you wrong bro. I know you got right wing narratives to uphold.

But yes, if the only metric you want to use is who pictures get looked at more, then Dunne is super popular.
