Caitlin Clark, a rising star in college basketball and a potential first-round pick in the WNBA draft, has received an invitation to the senior US women’s basketball team’s training camp in April. There are nine Olympians on the roster, including the legendary Diana Taurasi, a five-time gold medalist, which was revealed by USA Basketball on Thursday, March 28.

Clark’s addition represents a turning point in her developing career as she gets ready to play on the court with seasoned professionals in a dynamic mix of experience and up-and-coming talent.

It was earlier this month that Iowa native Clark broke the all-time scoring record, leaving her mark on NCAA history. She is a four-time first-team All-American who led her Hawkeyes to the 2023 NCAA Championship National Final.

Unmatched shooting ability of Clark

She is renowned for her unmatched shooting ability, particularly from far beyond the three-point arc. All eyes will be on her team’s matchup with Colorado in the Sweet 16 round of March Madness on Saturday, March 30, as they hold the top seed in this year’s tournament. Prepare to see basketball wizardry in action.

Although Clark won a gold medal for the United States team at the FIBA U19 World Cup in 2021, there have been questions raised by his absence from the senior U.S. team’s exhibition matches in November and the Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Antwerp this February.

Her possible attendance at the camp, which is scheduled from April 3rd to April 5th, now depends on Iowa’s performance in the NCAA women’s Final Four, which is scheduled from April 5th to April 7th. This careful mix highlights the significant risks and tactical considerations involved, building excitement for both Clark’s impending competition and his future pursuits.
