Former ESPNer Jemele Hill went incredibly viral for all the wrong reasons days ago when she downplayed Caitlin Clark’s effect on the growth in popularity of women’s basketball, while also railing against the media for not giving the same attention to Black players.

Hill stated the media had been doing a terrible job covering women’s sports, and when it does, it will “overload in one direction” as she referred to the covering of white players like Caitlin Clark and UConn star Paige Bueckers.

On Sunday, the NCAA’s all-time scoring leader, scored 18 of the Hawkeyes’ 27 points during the first quarter on Sunday as Iowa opened a seven-point lead over unbeaten South Carolina in the national championship game.

She would finish with 30 as South Carolina swarmed the Hawkeyes and their unquestioned leader in wave upon wave while pulling away late for an 87-75 victory.

After the loss, Jemele Hill would take to X to change her tune and praise Caitlin Clark for what she had done at Iowa.

Days before, Hill railed against the media for not covering Aliyah Boston when she was in college as she was arguably the best player then. Now, Clark is set to become her teammate.

“I mean, Aliyah Boston was the best player in college just a couple of years ago. And she did not get even a tenth of this media coverage that Caitlin Clark did. Now, some people would say, ‘Oh, it’s her game.’ But I don’t think it was that. She’s tremendous on television, and I’m thinking, What a missed opportunity for the national media to really elevate who she was as a person, she stated, via The NewYorkPost.com.”

Iowa and Clark had several viewing records when they faced off and defeated the LSU Tigers and the UConn Huskies. We should find out on Monday how many people tuned into what was her final collegiate game of her career.

Caitlin Clark did not go out the way she wanted to, but she did shatter one last record before she headed off to the WNBA.

Nailing a 3-pointer in the waning moments of the first quarter, Clark became the all-time leading scorer in NCAA Tournament history as she passed former Tennessee guard Chamique Holdsclaw’s record of 479 points that was set back in the late 90s.
