In her post-game conference, a reporter asks Loyd about what she would like to advise this draft class, specifically Caitlin Clark. To this, the game-high scorer responded, “I remember just having fun. Honestly, I came into a team where there was a lot of vets. So, I really just had to learn. I wasn’t trying to put any of the pressure on myself and that allowed me to be Rookie of the Year. So, everyone’s journey is different. Everyone has their own ups and downs. I can’t speak for anyone else but myself. But I just let the game come to me.”

The 2x ACC Tournament MVP who had given some great successes to Notre Dame, advanced to the drafts one year earlier. Talking about that, she added, “But I left early because I felt like I was ready.

Jewell Loyd has been one of the top performers in the league. She also has the sixth spot in the all-time leading scorers in the W. Hence, a word of advice should definitely go a long way for Caitlin Clark who is the NCAA’s all-time leading scorer.
