Caitlin Clark, the Indi­ana Fever’s star guard and the NCAA’s all-time lead­ing scor­er, dis­played matu­ri­ty in her pub­lic com­ments regard­ing her exclu­sion from the 2024 U.S.

Olympic wom­en’s bas­ket­ball team. How­ev­er, accord­ing to her coach Christie Sides, Clark’s pri­vate mes­sage hint­ed at a fiercer determination.

“They woke a mon­ster,” Sides revealed Clark texted her after the announce­ment. This defi­ant response reflects the wide­spread crit­i­cism sur­round­ing Clark’s omis­sion, despite her impres­sive WNBA per­for­mances and surg­ing popularity.

WNBA insid­ers like Barstool Sports’ Dave Port­noy ques­tioned the deci­sion, high­light­ing Clark’s unde­ni­able tal­ent. Sides acknowl­edged the dis­ap­point­ment, but empha­sized the immense com­pe­ti­tion for a spot on the U.S. team.

The report sug­gests Clark’s pop­u­lar­i­ty might have influ­enced the selec­tion, with con­cerns over poten­tial fan back­lash if she received lim­it­ed play­ing time.

Main­tain­ing a pos­i­tive out­look, Clark expressed her sup­port for the cho­sen play­ers and their pur­suit of gold. The upcom­ing WNBA sea­son break offers a wel­come respite for Clark, who has seen min­i­mal rest since her col­lege career.

With her deter­mi­na­tion unleashed, Clark’s legion of fans and the Indi­ana Fever eager­ly await her return. This Olympic snub is like­ly to fuel her rise as a dom­i­nant force in wom­en’s basketball.
