WNBA

The Caitlin Clark experience delivered another television milestone. ESPN’s coverage of the WNBA draft on Monday night averaged a record 2.45 million viewers, and viewership peaked at 3.09 million, ESPN said in a release Tuesday. The audience was more than four times as many viewers as the 2023 draft, which drew 572,000.

Caitlyn Clark is taking her game to the next level. Indiana picked her first in the draft, and her first game in the league will be in North Texas. Clark has captivated the nation between the WNBA draft, a historic college career, and even a stop at SNL last weekend. It’s no coincidence that her first WNBA game will be at College Park Center in Arlington, home of the Dallas Wings.
