From the moment Caitlin Clark announced she would forego one extra year of eligibility to head to the WNBA her name was written in ink as the first overall selection in the 2024 WNBA Draft to the Indiana Fever.

Clark will inevitably hear her name first after taking the women's college basketball world by storm and bringing it to unprecedented levels of popularity. She carries to the next level multiple multi-time Player of the Year awards, two Final Four appearances, dozens of records including the all-time scoring leader in all of NCAA college basketball and the attention of the world.

Ticket price records, television records, and social media metrics all reached new highs during Clark's college career, especially as it came to a close in 2024. As a result, the WNBA is making sure to feature Clark and her new team as often as possible with 36 of their 40 regular season games being televised nationally.

Once she is selected, she'll become just the second Hawkeye selected in the first round of the WNBA Draft. Toni Foster was the first, going No. 8 overall to the Phoenix Mercury. Samantha Logic was the second, going No. 10 overall to the Atlanta Dream. Clark will be just the 16th player from Iowa drafted into the WNBA.

The Indiana Fever has a sorted history in the league. The Fever won the WNBA Championship in 2012 and has two other Finals appearances. Indiana made the playoffs each year from 2005 to 2016. It's been a tough go of it since having posted single-digit wins in five of the last seven seasons, capping at 13 wins in 2019 and 2023.
