Former Duke men’s basketball star Jay Williams reiterated his opinion that Iowa Hawkeyes sharpshooter Caitlin Clark isn’t “great” yet because she hasn’t won an NCAA championship.

Williams doubled down on Wednesday when he called the LSU-Kentucky game on ESPN. The college basketball analyst had a segment with LSU women’s basketball star Angel Reese and was given a second chance to clarify what he said about Clark last week.

“We were talking about the ‘best’ and in my interview we talked about the GOATs,” Williams said. “For me, I’m like, do you want to be a GOAT? Good. There are levels of greatness. You have to win championships to be a GOAT.

“So when people want to present it as the greatest of (all time), I tell them, ‘Let’s slow it down.'” I have seen Diana Taurasi. I’ve seen Breanna Stewart. And you can sit there and tell me all day, ‘Well, she’s played with other great players.’ OK great. Championships: that’s how we measure greatness in general.”

Williams maintained that he still believes Clark is a “prolific” scorer and has one of the best ranges the game has ever seen.

Clark’s resume speaks for itself: She was the AP Player of the Year last year, won the John Wooden Award and is on track to become a three-time first-team All-American.

Not only has she become the all-time leading scorer in Division 1 women’s basketball history, but she could potentially surpass LSU legend Pete Maravich as Division 1 basketball’s all-time leading scorer. .

Clark led Iowa to a national championship appearance only to fall to Reese’s Tigers. For what it’s worth, Kelsey Plum, Kelsey Mitchell and Jackie Stiles, who are 2-4 behind Clark, have never won a title or made a national championship appearance.
