The arrival of rookie sensation Caitlin Clark has been a game-changer for the WNBA, driving up ratings, merchandise sales, and attendance to unprecedented levels.

Her presence has even led to NBA arenas selling out due to the high demand, as WNBA venues sometimes struggle to accommodate the growing number of fans. While the league has always boasted top-tier talent with players like Diana Taurasi, Breanna Stewart, Sue Bird, and A’ja Wilson, Clark’s entry has brought an unprecedented level of attention from both fans and media.

With this increased spotlight, it’s no surprise that rumors and gossip about Clark have proliferated. Some speculate that her fame might keep her from being selected for the Olympic team or that she should be more vocal about social issues like racism.

A recent rumor from DeuxMoi, a popular Instagram gossip page with over 2 million followers, claimed that Clark is soon to marry her boyfriend, Connor McCaffrey. However, as their bio states, “some statements made on this account have not been independently confirmed. This account does not claim information published is based in fact.”

Clark and McCaffrey have been together for just over a year, having met at the University of Iowa. Despite the swirling rumors, if they are indeed engaged, it is likely that any official announcement would be postponed until the end of the season. For now, Clark’s focus remains firmly on her team and their pursuit of success and getting into the playoffs, which is beneficial for the WNBA in terms of ratings, viewership, and attendance

On the court, Clark and the Indiana Fever(7-12) recently suffered their third loss of the season to the Seattle Storm (11-6). Clark contributed 15 points and 7 assists but managed only 3 points in the second half. Their next challenge is an equally tough matchup against Diana Taurasi and the Phoenix Mercury, scheduled for Sunday at 3:00 PM EST. Clark’s performance and the buzz surrounding her continue to elevate the WNBA, promising an exciting season ahead for fans and a bright future for the league.
