The best thing about Paige is how resilient she is, she's obviously been dealt a hard hand and, you know, that girl has nothing but positive things to say about her teammates and the way she carries herself on and off the court and the way he works hard. and none of that has changed, you know, since I've known her, she knows how to play with a great IQ, but I think the most important thing about her is that she competes and she's just a winner, she wants to win at all costs, so I know when addressing that. um it's going to be a great matchup um but I'm excited it's great for the game um and to be at this level with so many s

Andre, you know these two young ladies have the utmost respect for each other, obviously playing with each other since high school. Tell me this, although based on her story, a

title

would

be

more

impact

ful for Caitlyn this season or Paige Paige, a

title

would be

more

impact

ful for Paige and I discuss this back and forth. I really did it. It wasn't an easy answer for me because that's all Caitlyn needs, but for Paige Molly and you probably know this more than anyone except Paige plays 17 game two. seasons ago and losing and then missing all of last season and missing three starters on the bench, she's with two of her seniors and the others that are playing on this team are freshmen to lead this Yukon team after basically missing out two years of basketball and crying while sitting on the sidelines and watching his team.
I think it would mean more for Paige to win this one, but Dre Drea Paige chose to return to Yukon. She has time on her side for another year. Caitlyn Clark doesn't have one. Now, this is the moment we're here on the court in Cleveland and you've been the one to say that the best resume that could really cap off an incredible college legacy for Caitlyn Clark is a national championship if she were able to pull it off. You've even told Drea that it would put her in the best college basketball player conversation of all time.
We all agree that she is now on Mount Rushmore. What has she done during her career at Iowa? What has become the best male score of all time? or women's to take a team that was practically no, I mean no other top 100 player on his team to the final four again and then we all said like four weeks ago that it would take a miracle for Iowa to get here, they have . Not only did she deliver 41 and 12, but her teammates backed her up. The greatest quality of leadership is like that irrational trust you inspire among your teammates. 71% of Iowa's offense went through the hands, either scoring or assisting Caitlyn Clark, and time is. like he has two games to really cement this Legacy J.
I hear you, but if you say it would have taken a miracle for Iowa to get here, Jesus Christ himself had to come to help Yukon get to this point, they have no one. On the court outside there, seven eight players available, you have Paige Beckers, Aaliyah Edwards and niik mule playing 40 minutes, but you also have two potential WNBA pros, probably on that, I hear you, but Iowa has already been taken to new heights, that show has already been taken to a new level, Paige is trying to get Connecticut back to where everyone expects it to be, the expectation is different in Yukon, well let me rival Judge Judy here and step in and give my evaluation and draw a conclusion instead of going with Andrea Clark.
I'm going to go with Chenet Clark here and this is why Andrea, from what she said, talked about the time she was on Paige Becket's side, now make no mistake about it, you don't want to leave Yukon without capturing the championship this is her number 23, you know, you know the NCAA Final 4, we understand what they bring to the table and what you have, but let's be very clear before she leaves for the WNBA, we hope so because we are certainly praying that she never more get injured because Paige Beck really knows how to play and has a special talent, we all know it, but Caitlyn Clark is already declared for the WNBA draft, she is the first overall pick by Shorefire, this is the end of the last time we saw her lose the national championship game.
Since then, what does she do? She's sitting there at this tournament. She now herself she has an average of 32 and 10. This lady belongs on Mount Rush. Rather, she guesses that no one will want to hear that or a lot of people won't want to hear. Listen, if you don't have a degree attached, this is your last chance, this is truly the last dance for Caitlyn Clark at the collegiate level and she has accomplished everything, and I mean everything but a championship, oh yeah, this matters, this is further. It's important to her, but it's her injury itself.
Stephen A likes to miss almost two years playing basketball. I was there at the University of Tennessee. We had game day last year. Paige was sitting on the sidelines crying because she wanted to. she plays so bad I understand, but listen Stephen A, if you have a chance to get it, you have to go get it because we don't know what will happen next year, I have no idea what will happen after that. Andrea Clark Andrea Clark listens Listen to me carefully, here's the deal. I understand what you're saying and it's really nice and she feels good emotionally, but at the end of the day you know the fact that she's gotten over her injuries and is doing what she's doing to make the point.
We're literally looking at what she's overcome combined with the fact that she has time because this is not her last dance and so when you talk about the impact for Caitlyn Clark, consider the language we use when we talk about her. the hyperbole that we engage in, which is no longer hyperbole when it comes to her because she has proven that this is not the case, there is only one thing that escapes her resume and she has the opportunity to eradicate this entire week falls short, she It feels like it's already the United States. honey, as America's favorite daughter, everyone's rating, she has been, Kaitlyn Clark likes it, no matter what, America is already talking about the championship for Paige Becker, the recent tour, she missed two seasons , they had five wait, wait, wait, wait, this is Queen Yukon talking, I mean Stephen A said the most important word is impact because the impact of a national championship for Caitlyn Clark would put her in the plethora of top players that we've seen in college, you listed a few.
I played against all of them. Candace Parker Maya Moore Diana terasi I mean Sue Bird, I played against them, the greats, and we're talking about people whose resume Candace won twice, she dunked in the tournament. Maya Moore, the most outstanding player, Diana Trasi, Caitlyn just broke her records of three, so I like in this Women's Basketball Elite circle that I've been lucky enough to play with in the WNBA to talk to, everyone says that wait the game, they've had some really on your word, Stephen, a bad woman, they've had some really bad women now to get into that. conversation is as if the National Championship is the final nail that will put it in that cement.
I don't know if it's nail cement, solidify it, the concrete, concrete, concrete to build the Statue in the university, let me jump here real quick, you really believe it. People's opinions will be influenced by Caitlyn Clark whether she wins the championship or not, you don't feel like they've already decided, I think she's already certified, yes, they've already decided, she's the big one, she benefits from where she is the game. It's today and I know we started the segment by mentioning Steph Curry, but today it's about the ladies, right, but it's true, what Steph Curry did to revolutionize the game, brought it to women's soccer at the highest levels at the time more important, true, but in general.
I look at Katlin and see she wins this, what else do they have to say? Molly sits Molly walks Molly walks, you know, with hers Ukon Pride hers, the number one reason she does it is because of her titles, but you'll let her act like Caitlyn Clark. Not winning a title doesn't change anything, it doesn't mean anything. that's exactly what it means means everything to Molly she's already America's darling the ratings are already through the roof everyone's already in love with her but then she can but then she can join but Stephen you don't understand paig dealing with all the injuries that Yukon dealing with them aren't even supposed to be in this position the girl basically missed two seasons and now misses out on three starters if she comes in and shows up.
I understand. I understand what you are doing for Lady Ukon. I have it. I am my. Bad, I slipped up Andrea, that's what it's about, she's trying to defend one of her, you guys go ahead Andrea, you and Stephen A, you're both contradicting yourselves a little bit here because listen, listen, listen. What you're saying is if you said if Caitlyn wins she's the goat, great, then I would understand if you said K, if Caitlyn wins the championship she's the goat, all you're saying is if Caitlyn wins she'll be in the conversation, but what are people going to do? hold on against her, oh, only one won, like now, she is in the conversation, people are already talking about her like the goat, they are already preparing us.
I've been asked 50 times if Caitlyn wins, is she the goat? It's already in the conversation whether she wins or not she's in the day there's a difference between being the actual goat and being in the conversation you're not saying she would be the goat if she won you're saying she'll be in the conversation but being in the conversation means you're on the smallest of the biggest rungs and to me that's where the stakes are tonight, now Paige has the opportunity. not only to win a championship, but also to compete again with a Yukon team. that's much healthier and also side by side, yeah, she's done amazing things.
I'm someone who's dealt with injuries and had to come back, she's like overshadowing me in incredible ways, but the fact of the matter is if Caitlyn wins now, it just changes the game forever and how we view her and how we view a single season of college basketball from top to bottom. I'm back to call. I'm just silent because they said I have a representative. I'm just silent to call back. You're too fast, too fast, no Andrea Clark Andrea cter, you know who's probably watching us, shaking their head and smiling at Don Staley like we're about to get our third, so I don't even know what they're sitting here debating this fun , but South Carolina shows up, some of it is okay, um, yeah, thanks Andrea, I appreciate you sticking up for me here.
