Cameras Caught Caitlin Clark Making Young Fans’ Day After Winning Big Ten Title

Right after Caitlin Clark and the Iowa Hawkeyes beat the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the Big Ten women’s basketball tournament championship on Sunday afternoon, the Hawkeyes star took a quick detour before celebrating with her teammates in the locker room.

An elated Clark changed course when she saw a group of young fans waiting to meet their basketball idol. She ran to the other side of a rope and had security guards follow her to the side of the hallway.

The 22-year-old guard signed various posters and items for the young fans, who cheered with joy when she ran over to them. It was clear she made their day.

The moment was especially remarkable as Clark was in the midst of celebrating the Hawkeyes’ third consecutive Big Ten tournament title. Iowa rallied in the second half to send the game into overtime before winning, 94–89.

Clark recorded 34 points, 12 assists, seven rebounds and three steals. The Hawkeyes (29–4), ranked No. 3 in the nation, now wait to learn if they will receive a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament when the bracket is revealed Sunday evening.
