Watch: Caitlin Clark Has Enough, Shoves WNBA Player and Calls Out Refs - 'Don't Fall for That, She's so Soft!'

Share

The scrappy side of Caitlin Clark emerged Wednesday as she shoved an opponent guarding her and later complained to the referees when an opposing player drew a foul.

Clark’s Indiana Fever lost to Washington 89-84, according to the New York Post.

Clark ended the game with 29 points, 13 rebounds and five assists.

But the fierce competitor made the highlight videos for her tangle with Washington Mystics guard Julie Vanloo.

In the second quarter, she gave Vanloo a shove, although no foul was called because the referees were preoccupied with the Fever’s Aliyah Boston grappling with Washington center Stefanie Dolson.

Later in the game, Clark was called for an offensive foul, after Washington guard Ariel Atkins took a tumble.

“Don’t fall for that. You fell for it. She’s so soft,” Clark barked at a referee as she ran back up the court.

The day was not without high points for Clark.

As noted by Athlon Sports, a behind-the-back pass from Clark led to a NaLyssa Smith layup.

“My goodness. That is beautiful,” was all the commentator broadcasting the game could say.

As Clark tries to lift the Fever into the WNBA playoffs, she is also dueling the Chicago Sky’s Angel Reese for WNBA Rookie of the Year honors.

An Associated Press report said nine of the 15 people making the decision support Clark; 5 back Reese, and one did not share a preference.

“Today, I would say Clark, only because they have one more win overall as a team and have a 2-1 lead head-to-head,” said voter Christy Winters-Scott, a basketball analyst for the Mystics.

“Clearly this could change as the WNBA season progresses. It has been a complete joy for me to witness how both players have evolved as professionals in such a short amount of time in the league,” she said.


A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

 

“We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” Those 12 words have been stuck in my head since I first read them. 

 

Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn recently made that comment to Floyd Brown, founder of The Western Journal. 

 

And if the leftists and the elites get their way, that’s exactly what will happen — no real election, no real choice for the Electoral College, and no real say for the American people. 

 

The Western Journal is fighting to keep that from happening, but we can’t do it alone.

 

We work tirelessly to expose the lying leftist media and the corrupt America-hating elites.

 

But Big Tech’s stranglehold is now so tight that without help from you, we will not be able to continue the fight. 

 

The 2024 election is literally the most important election for every living American. We have to unite and fight for our country, otherwise we will lose it. And if we lose the America we love in 2024, we’ll lose it for good. Can we count on you to help? 

 

With you we will be able to field journalists, do more investigative work, expose more corruption, and get desperately needed truth to millions of Americans. 

 

We can do this only with your help. Please don’t wait one minute. Donate right now.

 

Thank you for reading,

Josh Manning

Deputy Managing Editor
