Women National Basketball Association (WNBA) first-round pick Caitlin Clark couldn’t help her Indiana Fever triumph over the Connecticut Sun as the star began her regular season on Tuesday night.

Caitlin Clark’s team lost the game 92-71 despite scoring 20 points and 10 turnovers, reported CNN.

Clark was also named the top scorer with Connecticut’s DeWanna Bonner.

Indiana Fever star Clark faced Connecticut Suns forward Alyssa Thomas, who secured 13 points, with the same number of assists and 10 rebounds.

The Suns had five of their members, led by Bonner, who had 20 points and six rebounds.

The Indiana forward found himself in foul trouble early and spent most of the first quarter on the bench. It was in the second quarter that Clark scored her first WNBA points.

At the end of the match, Clark said she would have liked to have played better in her debut match, but would like to do so in future matches this season.

“Of course I’m disappointed. Nobody likes to lose, that’s the way it is,” Clark said in the interview.

“But I don’t think you can beat yourself too much for one match. I don’t think this is going to help this team. No matter who is on this team, no one can do that with the way they played,” she said. “Just learn from it and move on.”

The Fever will take on the New York Liberty at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
