Caitlin Clark made her highly anticipated WNBA debut on Tuesday night and brought a championship game feel to the league’s opening night.

Unfortunately for Clark and her Indiana Fever teammates, the night produced a very mixed bag of results.

The good news: Clark scored a team-high 20 points and went 4-of-11 from three-point range. She joined an exclusive club in the process.

The bad news: The Fever lost 92-71 to the Connecticut Sun while Clark turned the ball over 10 times, setting a rather infamous record for most turnovers in a WNBA debut.

Clark has become one of the biggest stars in basketball over the past two years due to her record-setting career at the University of Iowa. But for as great and dominant as she was in college, there had to be an expectation for some growing pains and early struggles in her WNBA career.

The jump from college to any pro league is a significant one, and Clark is going to have to adjust to playing against elite competition every single night.

In the end, it is just one game that had a lot of positives and negatives.

She will make her home debut on Thursday night against the New York Liberty.
