The Caitlin Clark hype is REAL.

The WNBA’s Las Vegas Aces have relocated one of their upcoming games to a larger arena — that game happens to be against the Indiana Fever, CBS News reported. The Fever have the No. 1 pick in the 2024 WNBA Draft, and as a result, are expected to take Iowa Hawkeyes superstar Caitlin Clark. Yes, the same Caitlin Clark who has led college women’s basketball to record after record in terms of television ratings.

Expectations are that Clark will pull that same magic for the WNBA. The league’s draft is scheduled for Apr. 15, and if Clark does indeed go No. 1 overall (and she will), Indiana’s first game will be May 14 when they take on the Connecticut Sun.

With the Las Vegas game, that takes place July 2. The Aces play at Michelob Ultra Arena at Mandalay Bay, which fits 12,000 fans, but for this contest, they’ll be at an 18,000-capacity T-Mobile Arena, according to CBS News.

This is truly incredible. Like damn, look at the hype Caitlin Clark is solely generating for women’s basketball as a whole.

And I concur with MrBeast …

Caitlin Clark already has women’s college basketball doing it, so why not?
