Back when she was playing against Michigan State, she was later involved in a controversy even though she displayed her heroics. Despite the victory under he belt, and contributing 40 points in that game, she was gaining negative traction because of a mix-up between the arena clock and the broadcasting clock. People were of the view that the buzzer beater should have not counted.

Ohanian came to her rescue at that time as well, shunning people to treat Clark with some respect. He praised her performance and tried to persuade people to “put some respect on her name”.
