With 3,951 points overall, the renowned NCAA great left the Iowa Hawkeyes as the highest scoring player in college basketball history. ‘Pistol Pete’ Maravich’s record of 3,667 career points was exceeded by this new record, which has stood for 54 years.

As the first overall selection when he entered the professional ranks, Clark would join the Indiana Fever and virtually alter the course of the WNBA. Thanks to Clark’s fame, teams have been able to charter aircraft and sell out stadiums, among other developments.

Although Clark’s WNBA rookie pay is $76,535 per year, she moved quickly to ink a huge $28 million endorsement contract with Nike that includes a trademark shoe. In addition, Clark has created history in the sponsorship world by being the first athlete since Michael Jordan to be the face of the company and the first female athlete to sign an overall contract with Wilson.

With her on-court performance, Clark has lived up to the expectation and keeps proving why she is gaining attention. In the Fever’s game against the Los Angeles Sparks on Tuesday, Clark set yet another record.

In a single game, Clark made history by being the first rookie in the WNBA to record at least 30 points, five assists, five rebounds, three steals, and three blocks. The Fever ultimately lost the game to the Sparks 88-82, but the rookie made every effort to give the club a chance to win.

Regretfully, the Fever’s season hasn’t started off well. As of right now, the team’s record is 1-7; their lone victory was on May 24 versus the Sparks.

Clark is still succeeding professionally in spite of the difficult season. At the moment, her averages per game are 17.3 points, 5.4 rebounds, 6.3 assists, and 1.4 steals.

With her 21 3-pointers, Clark leads the league in 3-pointers made, and her 6.3 assists per game ranks fourth in the WNBA.

In order to accommodate sold-out audiences, WNBA clubs had already moved into larger venues in anticipation of Clark’s arrival. According to, the Fever now have the highest average attendance in the WNBA, drawing in 16,853 spectators every game.

Since Clark is still a rookie, it is likely that she will only get better with time. She is presently ranking among the top players in WNBA history with her current performance statistics. The Fever’s next move is to assemble additional personnel to support Clark.
