The Indiana Fever selected University of Iowa superstar Caitlin Clark with the top overall pick of the WNBA draft Monday night, setting a pro stage for the game’s most transformative player.

There was absolutely no surprise when WNBA commissioner Catherine Engelbert told an ESPN audience and a packed house at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York that the remarkably popular Clark had been selected by Indianapolis.

Clark strolled into the hall rocking a two-piece Prada set, with a miniskirt and a jacket atop a midriff-baring sparkle tank.

“I always just believed in myself,” Clark told ESPN and fans. “My parents always instilled confidence in me from a young age, when I was a young girl.”
