DALLAS — Caitlin Clark’s heart might be broken after a 102-85 loss to LSU in the national championship game, but let’s be clear about one thing: Her impact is not lessened.

Clark, the super-shooter from Des Moines, has become a household name after the last three weeks after logo 3s that made jaws drop and transition passes that made defenders’ heads spin. 

Clark drew the praise of some of the game’s finest, from Steph Curry to Magic Johnson. One of the most gifted passers in the history of the women’s game, some have compared Clark to “Pistol” Pete Maravich, one of basketball’s best showmen, by nicknaming her “Ponytail Pete.” She talks trash, then signs autographs.
