In Iowa's media event, Clark expressed her mindset regarding the decision that is about to be made by comparing it to her first college selection. "It's as if I'm in the process of recruiting again," she noted, stressing the importance of the present and not focusing on the future. 

"I'm actually in no way thinking about it all day, or letting it affect me. I'm focused on helping my team become the best they can possibly be." 

In the NCAA Tournament, Clark set the record for scoring 191 points while contributing 60 assists, proving her extraordinary ability. Her goals for Iowa surpass personal records. 

Clark is determined to win the national championship and is enjoying her college years which she believes to be one of the most memorable times of her life.
