Brittany Mahomes voiced her support for Caitlin Clark amid nasty drama involving the Indiana Fever guard during the team’s loss to the Chicago Sky on Saturday.

Just a day after Clark, 22, was brutally pushed to the ground by Sky’s Chennedy Carter, Mahomes, a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model who is married to Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, shared a post on Instagram supporting the WNBA rookie. star.

Mahomes, 28 – a former football player – wrote: “@caitlinclark22 keep doing your thing!!

“You are a baseball player and it’s amazing to see what you do for the game and women’s sports!!”

Mahomes’ words of encouragement come on the same day the WNBA called Carter’s foul against Clark a flagrant violation 1 after reviewing the play.

Carter shouldered Clark who knocked her to the ground before an inbounds pass during the third quarter of Saturday’s 71-70 victory over the Fever. The officials called it a foul away from the ball and did not review the play. At the time, it was considered a common foul.

“I didn’t expect it,” Clark said after the game. ‘It’s like that. It’s a physical game. Go make the free throw and execute on offense, and I feel like that’s kind of what we did.

Carter did not answer questions about Clark or the play after the game.

The league fined Sky forward Angel Reese $1,000 for not making herself available to the media after Saturday’s game. The WNBA also fined Chicago $5,000 for failing to ensure all players followed the league’s media policies.

The league office may reclassify a flagrant foul or improve a flagrant foul that is not called during the game. Additionally, the league can fine or suspend a player for a flagrant foul. The WNBA didn’t do anything to Carter either.

Players accrue points for flagrant fouls during the regular season and are suspended if they reach a certain number.

“This league is great, it’s a physical league,” Indiana coach Christie Sides said before playing the New York Liberty on Sunday night. “It was a non-basketball game that had to be canceled at that time.”

Sides praised Clark in her postgame interview Saturday for maintaining her composure throughout the physical play she has faced this season.

“She showed it last night,” the coach said. “I got up and kept playing. All she did was ask officials to look into it. They didn’t want to listen to him. I applaud her for the way she handled the situation last night.

Clark, who finished with 11 points, eight rebounds and six assists against Chicago, suffered a blowout loss to the New York Liberty just a day after the loss to the Sky.

“I grew up playing basketball with the boys. It’s always been physical and fiery and you have to find a way to cope,” she said.
