Brittany Mahomes Rallies Behind Caitlin Clark Following On-Court Clash

Brittany Mahomes has shown her support for Indiana Fever rookie guard Caitlin Clark. Mahomes, 28, posted on Instagram Stories on Sunday, June 2, offering encouragement after Clark, 22, was knocked down by an opponent in a game against the Chicago Sky on Saturday, June 1.

In her Instagram post, Mahomes lauded Clark’s performance and determination. “@caitlinclark22 keep shining!!” she wrote. “You’re a powerhouse and it’s amazing to see your impact on the game and women’s sports!!”

The incident occurred when Chicago Sky guard Chennedy Carter collided with Clark during play, using both her shoulder and hip to push Clark to the ground. Initially, officials deemed it an away-from-the-ball foul and did not review the play. However, after further examination, the WNBA upgraded the foul to a flagrant-1 violation.

Despite the flagrant foul, Carter, 25, did not face additional consequences such as fines or suspension, as reported by Fox News.
