Caitlin Clark’s WNBA preseason debut mirrored the events of her Iowa senior year. She performed in front of a sold-out audience and hit a number of threes.

But there was no victory in the end.

Clark made her WNBA debut for the Indiana Fever on Friday night in a preseason game against the Dallas Wings, only weeks after participating in the NCAA championship game. She scored a game-high 21 points in the first quarter on three 3-pointers.

However, it wasn’t enough to win as the Wings defeated the Fever 79-76 thanks to a step-back 3-pointer made by All-Star Aaron Ogunbowale with three seconds left.

As the buzzer rang, Clark got a contested look at a game-tying three, but his shot was well off target.

A roadside mob shouts for Clark.

To witness Clark’s debut, 7,000 people flocked to the College Park Center in Arlington, Texas. They applauded loudly as she was introduced during her first gameday as a WNBA player.

Clark quickly delivered the content that viewers had paid to see. In less than sixty seconds, Clark made her first 3-point try in a WNBA uniform, pulling up from beyond the arc on the right wing. It went through the net, giving the Fever a 5-2 advantage.

She repeated the action shortly after. Her second three increased Indiana’s advantage in the first quarter 14-3. Halfway through the first quarter, she made two of three free throws after drawing a foul on a 3-point attempt, increasing the Fever’s advantage to 16-9.

With 2:55 remaining in the quarter, she made her third 3-pointer, which put former Ohio State guard and fellow rookie Jacy Sheldon (the fifth pick) on the court. Pulling up from the top of the arc, she knocked her old Big Ten adversary to the court to get open.
