Caitlin Clark also brought excitement to the game of women’s basketball – something unimaginable before she entered college.

(Open the tweet to see the little green mark in the upper right-hand corner of the chart. The chart helps explain the excitement surrounding Clark.)

Clark and her Iowa teammates sold out every home game and sold out or set attendance records at nearly every major venue they played at all season.

Despite Caitlin Clark’s enormous success and the record interest in women’s basketball for the first time EVER — the old stars of yesteryear showed nothing but jealousy and disgust for Caitlin this year.

But they can’t stop Caitlin’s appeal.

Last night Saturday Night Live invited Caitlin Clark on – And she was sensational!
