Caitlin Clark gets flak for angry reaction against Holy Cross.

The first round of the 2024 Women’s NCAA Division I Tournament saw little to no drama. With every underdog except Middle Tennessee tasting defeat, the focus, instead, shifted to Caitlin Clark.

In a sensational performance, Clark, whose On3 NIL valuation is $3.1 million, dropped a near triple-double, posting 27 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds, as the Iowa Hawkeyes dominated the Holy Cross Crusaders in a 91-65 victory.

Instead of her performance, though, fans took notice of her on-court antics, with the commentary generally unfavorable all over Twitter. One user made a compilation of all of Clark’s mannerisms.

Another fan said her attitude overshadowed her talent.

“She has so much talent, but her entitled attitude is so bad. She gets mad at refs when she flips and doesn’t get a foul called.”

Another fan claimed that Clark’s quick rise to the top of women’s college basketball was the reason for her attitude.

“Sad. She’s got a lot of potential, such a good player, and seems like a good kid…but at some point, if you grow so quickly and get famous pretty fast, it can sometimes get to your head. You think you are invincible. I hope she changes her attitude a bit.”

Others joined in, claiming that her constant complaining was a “very bad look” on her part.

“She didn’t help herself today…the whining was a very bad look.”

“And this is what nobody wants to talk about!!!!! Out there like a damn toddler throwing tantrums.”

“Talking to her dad in the crowd? What is she. 12?”

“Crazy part is half the stuff she did, others would have gotten a technical foul but I guess she’s the exception”

Some people were on her side, however. To them, the situation was reminiscent of every great basketball player.

How did Caitlin Clark’s dad take to her complaining?

Caitlin Clark and the Iowa Hawkeyes were in control for most of the night. That didn’t stop Clark from complaining to the officials, but her father Brent wasn’t having any of it.

The cameras caught him as he appeared to mouth “Stop” at his daughter. Later on, CBS reporter Brad Crawford claimed that Brent said, “Take her out, my gosh” after she had committed her sixth turnover due to an offensive foul.

When does Caitlin Clark play next?
