Finishing with 25 points and 16 rebounds, Reese led Chicago to their first win over Indiana this season. Clark was great as well, finishing with 17 points, 13 assists, and 6 rebounds, but it wasn’t enough. Following this game, ESPN reported a massive shift in the Rookie of the Year odds, with Reese significantly closing the gap between her and Clark.

 

 

Individual matchups can have a strong impact on awards races, and it seems this matchup between Clark and Reese has heavily shifted the odds.

 

 

Both players have made a strong case for Rookie of the Year, as they each lead their class in different categories. Following Sunday’s game, here are the statistical averages for Clark and Reese:

 

 

Clark: 16.3 PPG, 6.6 APG, 5.4 RPG, 1.5 SPG, 0.9 BPG, 39.9% FG, 35.2% 3FG, 88.9% FT Reese: 13.2 PPG, 2.1 APG, 11.1 RPG, 1.7 SPG, 0.1 BPG, 40.6% FG, 0.0% 3FG, 76.2% FT Chicago (6-9) currently holds a half-game lead over Indiana (7-11) in the Eastern Conference standings.

While Clark and Reese play different positions and very different styles, they both lead WNBA rookies in several categories as this race continues to heat up.
