Sky coach Teresa Witherspoon: Chindi Carter’s blatant foul on Kaitlyn Clarke ‘wasn’t appropriate’

It’s been two days since the Chicago Sky’s 71-70 loss to the Indiana Fever, and Sky coach Teresa Witherspoon Issue a statement About the most talked-about play of that game: the flagrant foul by Chindi Carter on Fever rookie Caitlin Clark.

“Physical play, intensity and competitive spirit are the hallmarks of Chicago Sky basketball. Chindi went into the heat of the moment trying to win the game. She and I discussed what happened and that it was not appropriate, nor is this what we do or is this what we are?” Chindi realizes. There are better ways to handle situations on the field, and you will learn from this as we all will.

“As one team, we will grow together and continue to work hard to demonstrate strong leadership and set a positive example for our competitors, fans and partners.”

Carter gave Clark a big lead at the end of the third quarter without the ball being played. Clark fell to the floor and Carter was called for a personal foul. The WNBA upgraded the foul to Foul 1 after further review on Sunday. No one on Sky commented on Clarke or the error following the match.

Angel Reese completely skipped her post-game media obligations, which is against the WNBA’s media policy. The league announced Sunday that Reyes was fined $1,000 for skipping interviews and Sky was fined $5,000 for allowing it to violate the WNBA’s media policy.
