LSU women’s basketball coach Kim Mulkey praised Iowa guard Caitlin Clark after Clark led Iowa to an Elite Eight victory over LSU, eliminating the defending national champions.

Mulkey called Clark a “generational player” who is impossible to guard and makes her teammates better.

“She’s just a generational player,” Mulkey said. “She just makes everybody around her better.”

“That’s what the great ones do. I think they had a kid who scored 21 and 18, she had 12 assists,” she added. “Caitlin Clark is not going to beat you by herself. It’s what she does to make those other teammates better that helps her score points and them score points to beat you.”

Mulkey told Clark after the game that she was glad Clark was graduating since LSU would never have to face her again.

“What did I say to her? I said, ‘I sure am glad you leaving. I said, ‘Girl, you something else.’ Never seen anything like it,” Mulkey said.

Clark dominated with 41 points, 9 three-pointers, and 12 assists in 40 minutes.

She broke numerous NCAA records in the game. Clark’s outstanding senior season propelled Iowa to the Final Four, where they will face UConn, while South Carolina takes on N.C. State in the other semifinal.
