But despite holding ALL of the scoring records for women’s basketball EVER – Caitlin Clark was omitted from the US Women’s Basketball Team it was announced today.

Caitlin Clark was invited to attend Team USA training camp in April, but was unable to attend due to her team’s trip to the NCAA Tournament final.

Here is the roster… Most of these names you HAVE NEVER heard of.

CBS Sports reported:

Indiana Fever rookie Caitlin Clark is expected to be left off the Team USA women’s basketball roster for the upcoming Summer Olympics in Paris, David Eickholt of 247Sports confirms.

USA Today’s Christine Brennan first reported shortly after midnight Saturday.

Clark became the college basketball all-time leading scorer earlier this year, and she is currently putting up some impressive numbers in the WNBA.

In her first 14 games, she has averaged 16.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 1.5 steals per game. She has also already put up two 30-point games — one of them being during the Fever’s 85-83 win over the Washington Mystics in which she reached a career-high seven 3-pointers. With that performance, Clark became the fastest rookie in WNBA history to record 200+ points and 50+ assists.

When Caitlin Clark hit her third 3-pointer in four minutes in the third quarter, the crowd of over 20,000 immediately erupted in celebration.

With the noise, you would’ve thought it was a home game. But it wasn’t — it’s just what Clark draws.

Why leaving Caitlin Clark off the 2024 US Olympic women’s basketball team matters, a lot. I’ve reported on the team at every Olympics since 1984. I’ve watched the stunning lack of coverage & lack of interest every time. Here are four sections of my Feb column on this exact topic:
