Mulkey’s admiration for Caitlin Clark extends beyond statistics. She recalls facing Clark last season when LSU clashed with Iowa in the 2023 National Championship. Despite Clark’s 30-point performance, the Tigers emerged victorious. The context matters—Maravich’s era lacked the three-point arc, yet he averaged an astonishing 44.2 points per game during his LSU tenure.
