The Caitlin Clark Effect was huge on women’s college basketball — but what about the WNBA? Will the sharpshooter do for the women’s pro basketball league what she did for the college game? What would it take for that to happen? If nothing else, Clark is likely to have an impact on how some sports journalists cover women’s sports. After all, no one wants any more cringe-worthy moments like we saw when Clark was introduced in Indianapolis. We’ll talk about all that and more on The Jenni & Berry Show.
