I mean, that’s just how I feel about it…” Adding on, Smith said, “I’m just a Caitlin Clark fan. I think she is the Steph Curry of women’s college basketball.” But that was not all.

Smith also praised someone else as well. He said, “I like Paige Bueckers. She is something special.” However, he went back to praising Clark. “But I think about Clarke.. She is a spectacular sniper.
