Damian Lillard Calls Out Caitlin Clark’s Iowa’s Unfair Advantage Over West.

There is no doubt that Caitlin Clark is one of the most sought-after athletes in women’s basketball. She has been etching history and breaking records on and off the court.

Clark has also got the respect of NBA veterans and active players of today. But tonight’s Iowa State win over West Virginia was something Damian Lillard didn’t find too impressive.

He cut no corners as he took to X to share his displeasure. “I feel like West Virginia women’s team getting did bad by these refs.”

I feel like West Virginia women’s team getting did bad by these refs.

Lillard calling out the officiating isn’t too much of a surprise. In the Hawkeyes’ 64-54 win over the Mountaineers, the latter was called for 27 personal fouls while the other had just 11. Iowa shot 25-of-30 free throws while Virginia was limited to just 3-of-5. And Clark was only too happy to knock down all the free throws she got.

Caitlin’s 11 of 32 points were the courtesy of free throws. Whether the whole thing was a one-sided officiating or not is up for debate, but not only did Iowa State move up to the Sweet 16, Caitlin Clark broke the single-season record for scoring.

She surpassed Kelsey Plum (1,109) to notch 1,113 for the season. Following the successful run, the Hawkeyes will be facing off against the Colorado Buffaloes in Albany, New York as they advance to sweet sixteen.

Caitlin Clark inches closer to yet another record

Throughout her career, Clark has been a fountain of inspiration around the world.

The reach that the 6’0 guard created is mesmerising. So much so that Billie Jean King and basketball analysts have dubbed the whole situation ‘Clarkonomics’. And all of it starts at court, as her stats prove beyond a doubt.

From breaking records along the likes of AIAW legend Lynette Woodard (major college scoring record) to Pete Maravich (most career points in D-I history for men and women), Caitlin Clark is just getting started.

In the two games that she’s played since March Madness, Clark scored 27 points, eight rebounds, and 10 assists vs Holy Cross (March 23). And tonight, she had 32 points, eight rebounds, and three assists.

Aside from that, she is averaging 31.8 points per game this season. But her career stats are just as impressive, if not more. Clark had 57 30-point games, the most by a D-I player in the past 25 seasons.

She ranks second in triple-doubles (17) and has had 12 40-point games in her career.

The next closest record Caitlin could break or tie would be the career scoring average.

Patricia Hoskins has the highest career points per game – 28.4 (1985-89). Clark is averaging 28.37 points per game in her career, so it won’t be too long before she adds another feather to her cap before she leaves for the WNBA.
