Yeah some of these posts are stuck in 1989...I usually agree with and like your posts. But you are way off on this and most are. Girls now are way better athletes and basketball players than you are giving them credit for. Clark is definitely at the the level of D3 mens player. Her shooting alone is insane and would have no issues getting a shot off. She is 6 foot tall. She can also shoot it from 25+ feet. No one on here could stay in front of her trying to guard that far away from the hoop in space.
Also I coach HS girls basketball. We have been a top 3 team the past two years in our class. We have a one mid major player and 2 probably d2 players. (They are soph and jrs) They are freaking good. No one on here could compete with them either. You all need to get out of the past. Girls bball player are stronger, faster and more skilled now than they ever have been plus they can shoot it with more range.
I know some of you are joking but unfortunately most aren't which blows my mind.
The main point is to enjoy what we are witnessing with CC and the Iowa team, someone like her doesn't come around very often if ever. She is basically Steph Curry.
For sure men are stronger and faster and better athletes.. that is why the women's teams have college kids' men's gray team to compete against them.
I think some people are thinking about their undefeated teams in Algona Iowa or something.
I practiced with a top 5 ranked state tournament team last year (5A)
Our point guard who will run track in college... I laugh at the thought that some of these men on this forum think they could stay in front of her.
She is faster than 85% of the men on this forum....She could dribble better than 95% of the men on this forum.
Caitlan Clark could not play at the division one men's level... of course not.
But some of the other assertions in this thread are fantasy land.
