Sun 97, Fever 71 – Caitlin Clark struggles early in WNBA debut before scoring 20 points in Fever’s loss to Sun
The Caitlin Clark era in the WNBA has officially begun, although it got off to a slow start. Clark went scoreless for nearly the first 15 minutes, before getting more comfortable and finishing with 20 points in the Indiana Fever’s 92-71 loss to the Connecticut Sun on Tuesday night. She missed her first four shots before finally getting on the board midway through the second period. Clark had said before the game that she thought her first basket would come on a layup since it was a “high-percentage” shot.

Woods didn’t have a lot to offer about his role on the PGA Tour as it tries to negotiate with the Saudi backers of LIV Golf on a potential investment deal. As for his game? He says he needs to figure out how to play four good rounds instead of two.

NCAAFB – With CFP snub still stinging, ACC ponders how to boost football perceptions
The College Football Playoff snub of unbeaten Florida State is still a fresh wound for the entire Atlantic Coast Conference. On the agenda this week at the Ritz Carlton on Amelia Island is how to avoid having something similar happen again in the now 12-team CFP, with the selection committee responsible for divvying up seven at-large teams to go with the five highest ranked conference champions. Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi spoke for much of the conference when he said he felt as if there has been a lot of disrespect to ACC football.
