Dallas Mavericks star forward Luka Doncic has heaped praise on Caitlin Clark after her outstanding performance in the NCAA Women's Championship Elite 8 round.
The 22-year-old is often regarded as the next big thing as she is set to join the WNBA next season after delivering numerous performances throughout the ongoing campaign at the college basketball level.
Clark, on Monday, once again grabbed all the headlines as Iowa Hawkeyes faced LSU Tigers for the rematch of last year’s Finals.
The Des Moines-born registered 41 points to go with seven rebounds and 12 assists as the Hawkeyes came out on top with a score of 102-85. She registered nine three-pointers on the night in just 20 attempts, an impressive feat to say the least.
Doncic, who has been one of the star performers this season in the NBA, was recently quoted in a report where he heaped praise on the youngster and called her ‘most Steph Curry’ than him.
“Amazing. What did she have? Forty-one? She was shooting that ball on fire. I watched some of it,” said Doncic. “She shoots it better than me. That’s for sure. She is more Steph Curry than me.
Doncic is averaging 34 points per game which is the best by any player in the competition. To go with that, he is also contributing 9.1 rebounds and 9.8 assists per game.
