Sky coach: Chennedy Carter foul on Caitlin Clark ‘not appropriate’

Chennedy Carter

Chicago coach Teresa Weatherspoon released a statement on Monday addressing Sky guard Chennedy Carter’s hard foul on Indiana Fever rookie Caitlin Clark over the weekend.

Carter knocked Clark to the floor with a shoulder-check during Saturday’s game, a 71-70 win by the Fever. The WNBA upgraded the foul to a Flagrant 1 on Sunday.

“Chennedy got caught up in the heat of the moment in an effort to win the game. She and I have discussed what happened and that it was not appropriate, nor is it what we do or who we are,” Weatherspoon said in the statement.

Originally called an away-from-ball foul, Clark made the free throw with the Fever maintaining possession. It would have been two free throws and possession had it been ruled a Flagrant 1 in-game.

Carter will not be fined by the WNBA.

The Fever next play at Washington on Friday in a Commissioner’s Cup game. The Fever are 2-9 and the Mystics are 0-8.
