In a gesture of solidarity with women's basketball, he highlighted the importance of recognizing and supporting female athletes. Clark's exceptional performance on the court further solidified her status as a rising star in the basketball world.

With an impressive stat line of 41 points, seven rebounds, and 12 assists, she propelled the Hawkeyes to their second consecutive Final Four appearance.
