Mulkey, who is one of the most famous coaches in women’s basketball, paid Clark the ultimate tribute after No. 1 Iowa beat No. 3 LSU 94-87 for a return trip to the Final Four.

Clark was fantastic again, scoring 41 points while exacting revenge on the court against Reese.

After LSU’s season ended and Iowa left, the often outspoken Mulkey acknowledged how great Clark was.

The LSU coach also said the Tigers don’t need to play her anymore.

“I’m really glad you’re leaving,” Mulkey recalled saying to Clark. “Girl, you’re something else. I’ve never seen anything like it.”

Clark entered March Madness as the biggest name in women’s college basketball and did not disappoint.

She was praised by Tom Brady and former United States President Barack Obama, dominating games while eyeing the WNBA after her final NCAA tournament appearance.

“Congratulations to @CaitlinClark22, the greatest scorer in women’s college basketball history!” » Obama tweeted. “It’s been fun watching you and the @IowaWBB team this season.”

Brady also made his praise for Clark public, recording a tribute video released by the Big Ten Network.

“I just wanted to congratulate you on this record,” Brady said. “We love to witness greatness here. Keep your head down, go finish the job and I’ll watch you.”

Clark tries to guide the Hawkeyes to an NCAA title.

Once she turns to the pros, the generational sharpshooter could become the biggest star the WNBA has ever seen.

“It’s amazing to be back in the Final Four. It’s so hard to go back,” Clark said. “This region was really tough, but we figured we were the top seed for a reason. »

Iowa (33-4) will face Paige Bueckers and Connecticut in the women’s national semifinal Saturday in Cleveland.

Earlier this season, the cheapest ticket to watch Clark play became the most expensive admission ticket in NCAA women’s basketball history.

It was another reminder that after March Madness, the next step for the Iowa superstar is the pros.

Mulkey made it clear she had seen enough of the future WNBA star – in a good way.

“There’s not a lot of strategy. You must keep it. No one else seems to be able to keep her,” Mulkey said.

“We didn’t even guard it last year when we beat them. She’s just a generational player, and she makes everyone around her better.
