Currently, Caitlin Clark and the Iowa Hawkeyes are competing in the NCAA women’s basketball tournament.

During a recent tour stop in Iowa, Tim McGraw took a moment to acknowledge one of the state’s notable figures. McGraw, who is currently on his Standing Room Only Tour across the country, performed at Des Moines’ Wells Fargo Arena on Friday. During the show, he sported a no. 22 University of Iowa basketball jersey as a tribute to the remarkable athlete Caitlin Clark.

The 56-year-old country star posted a snapshot from his performance on social media platform X (formerly Twitter), captioning it, “When in Iowa . . . Had to represent! Big year for @CaitlinClark22 and @IowaWBB.”

McGraw completed his look with jeans and his trademark cowboy hat.

As of now, Caitlin Clark and the Iowa Hawkeyes are actively participating in the NCAA women’s basketball tournament, also known as March Madness. In their first-round game against Holy Cross on Saturday, the Hawkeyes secured a victory with a score of 91-65. Notably, Clark, aged 22, made a significant contribution to the team’s success by scoring 27 points.

In the previous month, Clark achieved a historic milestone by becoming the all-time leading scorer in NCAA women’s basketball during the Iowa Hawkeyes’ matchup against the Michigan Wolverines. Furthermore, in early March, she further solidified her legacy by surpassing all-time scoring records in NCAA Division I basketball, spanning both men’s and women’s divisions.

Clark had to surpass the legendary Louisiana State University (LSU) basketball player “Pistol” Pete Maravich to accomplish this feat. Maravich passed away in 1988.

Despite being eligible for one more season with Iowa, the exceptional athlete has confirmed that she will forgo her final season and instead declare for the 2024 WNBA draft, scheduled for April 15th.
