β€’

The two biggest NCAA basketball stars are set to meet for the first time in the WNBA, as Caitlin Clark and the Fever host Angel Reese and the Sky at 12 p.m. ET Sunday.

The collegiate rivals are already living up to sky-high expectations at the pro level. Clark became the first of their rookie class to record a 30-point game, while Reese posted a double-double in her fifth game.

Their first WNBA clash also will feature another prominent rookie in Kamilla Cardoso, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2024 draft. Clark went No. 1 overall to Indiana, while Reese joined Cardoso in Chicago at No. 7 overall.

Cardoso was sidelined for the first few weeks of the season with a shoulder injury. But the former South Carolina star, who beat Clark in the 2024 NCAA title game, is expected to make her WNBA debut against the Fever.

Friends, rivals, college basketball legends β€” Clark and Reese (and Cardoso) will provide an unforgettable matchup for WNBA fans everywhere.

End of fourth quarter: Fever 71, Sky 70

2:06 p.m.: Chicago falls asleep at the wheel, letting Wheeler advance to the backcourt without any sort of resistance. She sends the ball to Clark and the Fever dribble out the clock! Game. Set. Match. Indiana wins, 71-70!

2:05 p.m.: She sinks the second! 

2:04 p.m.: Mabry misses the first!

2:03 p.m.: FOUL! Mabry takes the hit after Smith attempts to nab a steal. She heads to the free throw line with 6.6 seconds left and a chance to tie the game.

1:59 p.m.: Untimely turnover for Cardoso as the reigning Most Outstanding Player of the NCAA Tournament walks on the inbounds pass. Missed opportunity for the Sky: Carter was open underneath the basket.

1:57 p.m.: AND-ONE! Boston fires back! She flicks the ball in over Cardoso’s outstretched grasp, drawing contact as she scores! What a bucket! What a moment! Indiana back up four.

1:56 p.m.: Carter sinks the layup and follows it up with a sumptuous feed to Cardoso as the Sky cut the lead to just one.

End of third quarter: Fever 54, Sky 49

1:28 p.m.: Some extracurricular activity as the quarter comes to a close. Chennedy Carter shoulder checks Clark for seemingly no reason, prompting the referees to give her a flagrant foul. Clark didn’t seemed too pleased about the gesture, either.

1:25 p.m.: Boston with some impressive resiliency. Found the target after missing a previous three attempts β€” and corralling the rebound for each of them.

1:21 p.m.: Cardoso overpowers Boston once more, scooping another basket β€” her fourth of the day. She’s got eight points in her WNBA debut and is yet to miss a shot.

1:19 p.m.: Back-and-forth affair here at Gainsbridge. Kristy Wallace fires one through contact after rising above Mabry for the and-one. Fever’s lead returns back to four after the basket.

1:18 p.m.: Clark exits the matchup after taking bit of contact from Cardoso. Looked like she might’ve landed awkwardly.

1:12 p.m.: After a sloppy start to the quarter, it’s the Fever who find life! Quick six-point run brings them up six, spotlighted by a slick Smith finger-roll on the fast break.

12:47 p.m.: Indiana’s supporting cast is coming through in a big way! Smith just took Reese to the cleaners on the post-up, side-stepping beyond her before finishing her layup with aplomb. Mitchell follows that up with yet another basket to pull Indiana out in front.

12:43 p.m.: Kelsey Mitchell drains a triple, then follows that up with an uncontested layup on the fast break. Her five-point flourish levels the game at 31 apiece.

12:39 p.m.: Reverse layup falls for Clark, who maneuvered easily beyond Marina Mabrey to get to the cup.

12:32 p.m.: NaLyssa Smith sinks the floater as she pulls herself to nine points on the day. She’s shown something at all three levels of the floor so far.

12:31 p.m.: Another basket by Kamilla Cardoso, who – in her first career game β€” has shown glimpses of why the Sky selected her froth overall in last year’s draft. She’s up to six points on the day.
