Brittany’s support of Clark came on the same day that the Associated Press reported that the WNBA had reviewed Chicago Sky guard Chennedy Carter’s foul against Clark, in which Carter, 25, shoulder-checked and hip-checked Clark unprovoked before a play, knocking her to the ground.

Officials initially called the physical contact an away-from-the-ball foul and opted not to review the play. However, per the AP and other reports on Sunday, June 2, the foul was upgraded to a flagrant-1 violation after review by the WNBA.

Per Fox News, Carter avoided a fine or suspension.

Clark, who became the all-time scorer in NCAA Division I basketball in March, reflected on the play in a post-game interview on Saturday.

“I wasn’t expecting it,” she said, per the AP. “It is what it is. It’s a physical game. Go make the free throw and execute on offense, and I feel like that’s kind of what we did.”

The AP reported that Carter didn’t answer questions about Clark or the play in her interview.

In her post-game interview on Saturday, Indiana coach Christie Sides spoke highly of her rookie guard for how she handled the situation, per the AP.

“[Clark] got up and kept playing. All she did was ask the officials to review it. They didn’t want to listen to it. I applaud her for how she handled it last night,” Sides said.
