All-Time NCAA Scorer Caitlin Clark Invited to U.S.A. Basketball National Team Training Camp During Final Four in Cleveland

Clark selected to join U.S. national team for training camp

Caitlin Clark, the NCAA’s all-time Division I scoring leader, has been invited to participate in the U.S.A Basketball national team training camp during the Final Four in Cleveland. This invitation is contingent on Iowa’s season being over. Clark has previously earned three gold medals with U.S.A. Basketball junior teams, most recently as a member of the 2021 under-19 squad.

Clark is projected to be the No. 1 draft pick in the upcoming WNBA Draft by the Indiana Fever in April. She has been a ratings success for college basketball, with nearly 5 million people tuning in to watch the Hawkeyes second-round game against West Virginia. Joining Clark at the training camp will be a number of talented players, including five-time Olympic champion Diana Taurasi, former WNBA Rookie of the Year winners Aliyah Boston and Rhyne Howard, as well as Sabrina Ionescu and Shakira Austin.

The U.S went undefeated in a FIBA Women’s Olympic Qualifying Tournament last month in Belgium, securing victories over the host nation, Nigeria and Senegal. The Americans have a strong history of success in Olympic competition having won gold since 1996 Atlanta games and they are expected to face tough competition from Belgium Japan and Germany
