Caitlin Clark was so giddy after a surprise meeting with her childhood idol Maya Moore.

Caitlin Clark wouldn’t be the excellent basketball player she is today without the players who paved the way before her, and one of those players in particular was Maya Moore.

The UConn and Minnesota Lynx legend was one of Clark’s biggest influences, and on Sunday, Clark got to meet her idol for the first time… well, kind of the first time.

During an interview with Clark before Iowa’s game against No. 2 Ohio State, ESPN had Moore pop out to surprise the NCAA’s new career scoring record holder.

Clark let out an audible gasp.

“I’m fan-girling so hard,” she said, before explaining how she met Moore as a kid and was able to hug her and get an autograph.

This was a cool moment for both women, and a full-circle moment for Moore, who remembered when she got to meet some of the legends who influenced her.

Clark will no doubt do the same for future players.
