Caitlin Clark keeps learning hard lessons about life in the WNBA

The WNBA's rookie stars can't say Diana Taurasi didn't warn them.

"Reality is coming," Taurasi told ESPN's Scott Van Pelt during the NCAA tournament. "You look superhuman playing against some 18-year-olds, but you're going to come play with some grown women that have been playing professional basketball for a long time. There is going to be a transition period where you're going to have to give yourself some grace as a rookie."

If new fans who flocked to the league were expecting an extension of the tournament, which drew record viewership, they were in for a surprise. In the first few weeks of their pro careers, NCAA stars including Caitlin Clark and Angel Reese have discovered just how right Taurasi was.
