The Caitlin Counter: Clark's all-around game is key to the Fever's success

It was a classic Caitlin Clark clinic in the first and final minutes of Indiana’s first win against New York over the weekend. And her triple-double — the first by a rookie in the league’s 28-year history — is no small feat. It’s not simply that first-year players haven’t done it. Few players of any experience level have reached the mark in the WNBA.

And it’s that stat-packing the Fever need to keep winning this year, not Clark scoring a bunch of points to lead them offensively. At Iowa, the Hawkeyes won all 17 games she notched a triple-double; when she scored at least 40, they went 9-4.
