This year, the just-concluded women’s college basketball season seemed to also double as a Caitlin Clark record-breaking exhibition. In a two-week span in mid-February, as she put the bow on a one-of-one college career, Clark toppled a series of never-to-be-busted records that left her standing alone as the most decorated scorer in college hoops history.

In other words: we’re pretty sure when the Fever kick the W season off next month, Clark will be able to break out as much Prada as she likes.
