🗣️ Quote du Jour:

"I want to personally thank Caitlin Clark for lifting up our sport. She carried a heavy load for our sport and it's just not going to stop here on the collegiate tour, but when she is the No. 1 pick in the WNBA draft, she's going to lift up that league up as well."
— Philly native and South Carolina head coach Dawn Staley after her team beat Clark-led Iowa 87-75 to win a third NCAA championship.
