Caitlin Clark mocks Sun star DiJonai Carrington for failure

WNBA

DiJonai Carrington brought the drama to Monday’s match with Caitlin Clark and the Fever.

The Sun guard became a viral meme when she was seen mocking Clark for failing on a foul in the second quarter of Connecticut’s 89-72 final victory over Indiana at Mohegan Sun Arena.

With less than four minutes left before halftime, Carrington was booked for a foul on Clark at the top of the perimeter, then began mimicking the rookie in a flop move repeatedly.

Clark looked at Carrington and seemed to say something before the two separated.

Carrington — who finished with a game-high 22 points, six rebounds, three assists and three steals — reposted a clip of the moment on X, along with a meme of her mocking Clark.

“Ayoooooo I’m having mmmm dramaaaa,” Carrington wrote, adding a bunch of crying and laughing emojis.

The Skims model, who was successful on both ends of the court, continued to make a strong case for the WNBA Most Improved Player award after rejoining the starting lineup from a bench role a year prior.

Clark has been criticized for embellishing fouls and failing while adjusting to his physique at the professional level.

The Sun held Clark to 10 points on 3-of-8 shooting in their third straight win over the Fever this season.

At one point in the third quarter, Clark threw a floater from the free throw line and looked defeated.

The former Iowa All-American has had her share of welcome moments in the league, including serious fouls and trash talk.

Clark, 22, made headlines when she was not included on Team USA’s 12-player roster for the 2024 Paris Olympics, which leaked over the weekend.

Clark confirmed she received a call from USA Basketball officials informing her she was not named to the roster after receiving an invitation to the 14-player training camp in April.

She missed final camp before the Summer Olympics as she and the Hawkeyes advanced to the Final Four of the NCAA tournament, with Iowa ultimately falling short against South Carolina in the national championship game.

Clark, along with Brionna Jones of the Connecticut Sun, are at the top of the list of replacements, should Team USA need a replacement, Shams Charania of The Athletic reported Monday.
