At the end of the battle between the two best women’s basketball programs in the country, LSU Head coach Kim Mulkey was not grateful Caitlin Clark of Iowa.
Mulkey and Clark met on the postgame handshake line LSU had won. In the national championship, Iowa was poised to celebrate her fourth career championship after giving Clark and the Hawkeyes everything they had in the final game, 102-85.

ESPN cameras caught what Mulkey Clark had to say.
“You’re a generational player,” Mulkey said.
Clark has set the sport on fire over the last three appearances in the NCAA tournament. She had 40-plus point games between the Elite Eight and the Final Four. And she put up 30 points against LSU despite struggling the entire game with a highly questionable technical foul.

As she looks toward the final season of her college career, Clark talks about her legacy and the impact she hopes to have on the community.
“I want my legacy to be an impact on young kids and people in the state of Iowa, and I hope I brought them a lot of joy this season. I hope this team brings them a lot of joy. We understand that we came out one win away, but I think we have a lot to be proud of and celebrate,” she told reporters. I was that young girl, so all you have to do is dream, and you can be in moments like this.”
