Clark, Martin go head-to-head

Clark and Martin accomplished quite a bit during their time at Iowa together. The pair won three Big Ten Tournament championships and guided the Hawkeyes to back-to-back appearances in the National Championship Game in 2023 and 2024.

Saturday marks the first time the former teammates will compete against each other in the WNBA. Their roles are significantly different, but it should still make for an interesting matchup.

Clark is pegged as the WNBA's rising star and is the face of the Fever's franchise. Although she's struggled with turnovers and some of the physical nature of the league early, she's demonstrated the ability to be an effective scorer and passer at the professional level.

Martin, on the other hand, has taken on a bench role with the Aces. Through the team's first three games, the rookie is averaging 3.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.5 points per game while logging just over 20 minutes.
