Caitlin Clark saw her dreams of being in the WNBA become reality on Monday night when she was drafted No. 1 overall by the Indiana Fever, beginning a new era for the game’s most transformative player.

WNBA commissioner Catherine Engelbert made the announcement at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York.

“I’m excited to get there, I’m excited to get to Indianapolis,” Clark added.
