Iowa Hawkeyes star Caitlin Clark has become the face of women’s college basketball with her extraordinary scoring feats over the years, bringing much scrutiny into her personal life.

One aspect of her life that she has never hidden is her long-term relationship with her boyfriend, Connor McCaffery.

The couple has occasionally set major couple goals, and here’s a look at five instances they did this in the past.

“Imagine leaving her when she has the ball 😂,” he wrote.

How Caitlin Clark deals with pressure

Caitlin Clark is no stranger to the media circus that comes with being the reigning National Player of the Year and winning numerous awards as her star continues to shine.

Clark knows how to deal with the pressure of being the country’s best women’s college basketball player and the increased scrutiny of her life, including both adulation and hate from the college basketball fraternity.

She spoke about how she handles both scenarios after recording another double-double in the second-ranked Hawkeyes’ 84-57 dominant win against the Indiana Hoosiers on Saturday.

“I think I just worry about being in this moment, enjoying this moment,” Clark said. “The people that I really care about, the people that I really love— they always have my back, even when I take off my basketball shoes, take off my uniform and I’m done playing one day. Those are the people that are really going to matter to me.

“But, yeah, that’s what kinda comes with it when you have the stardom. I think something that I try to live by is like all the love that you feel, the praise, that’s the level you’re gonna feel all the hate, too. So, you got to stay right in the middle.”

While she is having a stellar season averaging 30.9 points, 7.2 rebounds and 7.9 assists, she has shown that she has time for her relationships off the court, and at the forefront is her boyfriend, Connor McCaffery.
