The June 1, 2024, match between Indiana Fever and Chicago Sky has been highlighted because of the jumper and a body check by Chennedy Carter on Caitlin Clark. Amidst all, Kate Martin’s reaction has become the center as Caitlin and she are close friends.

Chennedy Carter, the shooting guard for Chicago Sky, received a flagrant-1 violation foul against Indiana Fever’s point guard Caitlin Clark after reviewing the shoulder shot.

Following the uproar during the Saturday game, Chennedy Carter and Caitlin Clark both gave their interview.

Caitlin pointed out everyone getting physical with her this season, but that is just the phase under a professional basketball game.

On the other hand, Chennedy said she would not answer any questions related to Caitlin Clark and does not regret anything. While teammates of the both have come forward on their defense.

Angel Reese is taking Chennedy’s side, saying that people are watching the game not only because of one person but because of the efforts everyone has shown.

As for Caitlin’s side, fans want Kate Martin, her former teammate, to talk about the behavior of Chennedy Carter, but the Las Vegas Aces guard has not spoken anything about Caitlin’s situation.

Caitlin Clark and Kate Martin’s bond goes back to their collegiate basketball team

As a graduate of the Univeristy of Iowa, Kate Martin and Caitlin Clark have been friends since 2020 as Caitlin was 2020-24 batch while Kate was 2019-24.

They were both Iowa Hawkeyes playing college basketball when the WNBA selected Caitlin as No. 1 overall on February 29, 2024.

Kate Martin went to Brooklyn to support her former Iowa teammate when, surprisingly, the WNBA drafted her as No. 18, making her dream come true. The two were often referred to as sisters.

Caitlin even took to Instagram to congratulate Kate on her achievement as the ladies brought the Iowa women’s basketball team the most success in its history.

However, there are people who compare the two friends. They say, “Caitlin Clark is in hell while Kate Martin is being welcomed with open arms.”

Others say, “There’s no Caitlin Clark without Kate Martin, I’ll forever believe that.

Some are bringing a tweet from Kate Martin forward, where the account holder points out that she liked the game of Chennedy Carter and that defending Caitlin Clark with trash, racist & misogynistic takes is a bummer.

But to clarify, Kate Martin on Twitter is not a basketball player from the Las Vegas Aces but a commoner with the same name.

To find out about the former Iowa Hawkeyes’ bonding, one can surf through Caitlin’s and Kate’s Instagram profiles, where they seem close and travel like any other normal close friend.
