Caitlin Clark has said her last goodbyes.

The legendary women’s basketball player closed out her remarkable college career Sunday, doing so after a brutal loss to the South Carolina Gamecocks in the national championship game.

Clark‘s legacy will forever be remembered, especially in the scoring department where she currently holds the all-time scoring record. On top of that, she’s handled everything with class and humbleness, something you don’t see much of anymore in 2024.

Well, a few hours after the defeat Sunday night, Clark took to social media to reach out to Iowa fans — once again showing her character in one last goodbye to the university and its community.

“Words cannot express my love for my teammates, coaches, fans and our university – Thanks for making my dreams come true. Wearing Iowa across my chest the last four years has been an honor. This place will always be home,” Clark posted on X.

As of Monday morning, the post has been viewed over an incredible two million times, showing the massive popularity of Clark.

It’s crazy to think about how interested we got into women’s basketball because of Caitlin Clark.

When I first started working here at the Daily Caller, I was making fun of the sport. Now I’m writing my third consecutive piece about it … just incredible.

The Caitlin Clark Effect.
