Social Media Unleashed Hate On “Cry Baby” Caitlin Clark During Sunday’s National Title Game

Caitlin Clark will have to live down her disappointment after failing to capture a ring before her move to the WNBA.

The Iowa star scored 30 points against South Carolina in Sunday’s national title game yet it was not enough to propel the Hawkeyes to win as they lost 87-75 to a well-coached Gamecocks side.

The officiating certainly wasn’t perfect, however, fans were not happy with Clark’s constant pleas to the refs as the 22-year-old was visibly upset at the lack of a whistle on multiple plays. Some fans felt like she was demanding unwarranted foul calls and slammed her online.

Clark complaining to the refs was a common theme over the course of the NCAA Tournament. Her round of 32 contest against West Virginia was one of the more glaring outings, with her remonstrating overshadowing a great performance.

Even her father appeared to be tired of her antics at one point.

Iowa’s Final Four matchup against UConn saw 18 calls go against the Huskies, including a controversial illegal screen call in the dying seconds, with forward Aaliyah Edwards getting blown for attempting to set a screen on Gabbie Marshall for the last shot.

The call took possession away from the Hawkeyes, ultimately helping them to a close win.

Fans Went At Caitlin Clark On Sunday

The Gamecocks were called for 17 fouls during the national title game on Sunday. Caitlin Clarke would hit a three after pushing a defender off at one point, so fans were not inclined to feel sorry for her when the calls went against Iowa or didn’t come at all.

South Carolina still managed to dominate, thanks to a monster performance from the towering Kamilla Cardoso, who scored 15 points and grabbed 17 rebounds.

Clark leaves for the WNBA without achieving her goal of winning a championship in college but can look back fondly on a record-breaking NCAA career after becoming college basketball’s highest-ever scorer during the season.
