A new era for women's basketball gets under way when Caitlin Clark makes her full professional debut for the Indiana Fever as the new WNBA season tips off on Tuesday.

After a college career which rewrote the record books and shattered attendance and television viewing marks, Clark, the No. 1 pick in the WNBA draft, will line up for Indiana's season-opening road game against the Connecticut Sun.

Anticipation for Clark's regular season debut has already started to mirror the excitement that accompanied her collegiate career, when sellout crowds flocked to Iowa Hawkeyes games to catch a glimpse of a generational talent.
