Ionescu and Clark go “way back.” During a press conference earlier this year, Ionescu said she hosted Clark and her father for a recruiting visit at Oregon when Clark was a high schooler.

Ionescu was asked to share her thoughts on Clark as she begins her WNBA career as the Fever’s No. 1 overall pick. The Liberty point guard’s comments are resurfacing on social media before Saturday’s game.

“She’s so young. She’s going to be able to continue to learn and grow,” ionescu said of Clark. “Times like this is when you figure out what you’re really made of. How you continue to improve as a teammate, as a basketball player, as a person.

“… I just know she’s gonna continue to work really hard and stick with it. Good things will happen to good people.”

Saturday’s Fever-Liberty matchup will tipoff at 1 p.m. ET in Indiana.
