Caitlin Clark’s Indiana Fever teammates face scrutiny following more rough fouls against her

Caitlin Clark’s journey from the NCAA to the WNBA has been bumpier than anticipated, with her season debut for the Indiana Fever starting with a disappointing 2-8 record. Their second victory of the season came this Saturday in a nail-biting game against the Chicago Sky, ending 71-70. Clark delivered a solid performance, scoring 11 points, grabbing eight rebounds, and dishing out six assists. Yet, it wasn’t her stats that grabbed the headlines but rather a hard foul she endured from Chennedy Carter in the dying moments of the third quarter.

Carter’s foul left Clark sprawled on the court, but the referee ruled it a common foul instead of a flagrant one. The Fever was given a single free throw, which ultimately became the decisive factor in their hard-fought win. Despite this narrow victory, Clark’s teammates are under fire on social media for not standing up for her after the rough foul, as Clark has been facing intense physical play from her opponents since her WNBA debut.
