The Indiana Fever rookie isn’t having ‘fun’ anymore…

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2024 WNBA Draft and former Iowa sensation Caitlin Clark is still searching for her first-career win with the Indiana Fever following another loss Wednesday night. The Fever lost 85-83 to the Seattle Storm, dropping to 0-5 on the season as a result. Clark scored a team-high 21 points in the loss and is trying to remain optimistic despite the frustrating start to her WNBA career.

“You’re never happy to lose,” Clark said postgame. “It’s not fun, but at the same time there’s just a lot of things to build on. That’s why I’m just trying to be as positive as possible, continue to learn, continue to stack days. I know our first win will be right around the corner.”

Clark had a costly turnover in the final seconds of the fourth quarter as Indiana attempted to take the lead late in a one-possession game in front of a sold-out Seattle crowd of 18,343 — its largest in franchise history and most for a WNBA regular-season game since 2018.

“I think you can, but at the same time these two definitely hurt the most,” Clark said. “We’re what, six points away from being 2-3 instead of 0-5? It’s that close and there’s so many instances of going back and watching the film of little things that you can easily fix and clean up that would go a really long way and possibly wouldn’t come down to one possession. I think you have to find confidence in that, especially at this point being 0-5. If you just get upset by it I don’t think that’s going to be too beneficial for us.”

Through five games of her rookie WNBA season, Clark is averaging 17.9 points per game, which is 15th-most in the league. She also averages 4.6 rebounds and 5.8 assists while shooting 40.3% from the field and 32.6% from 3-point range.

Clark broke numerous records during her four-year college career at Iowa where she became a household name. Women’s college basketball reached incredible new heights in popularity this past season with star players, a list headlined by Clark. Iowa drew record TV ratings for the Elite Eight, Final Four and national championship games. Clark became the all-time scoring leader for any NCAA Division I player — men’s and women’s — while also surpassing Lynette Woodard as the all-time scoring leader in major women’s college basketball with 3,951 career points.
