Chennedy Carter, guard for the Chicago Sky, affirmed on Monday that she harbors no regrets despite the backlash she has received following a flagrant foul incident involving Indiana Fever guard Caitlin Clark during Saturday’s game.

During the third quarter of the Fever’s 71-70 victory, Carter collided with Clark, causing her to fall to the ground before an inbound pass. Initially ruled as a common foul by officials, the WNBA later upgraded it to a flagrant-1 violation upon review on Sunday.

Despite abstaining from discussing the incident immediately after the game, Carter addressed the issue during Sky practice on Monday, asserting her commitment to maintaining her style of play despite the criticism she’s faced.

Carter highlighted that physical exchanges like these are commonplace during games, with players generally not holding such incidents against each other. She also emphasized that she has moved past the incident already.

In response to the foul, Sky head coach Teresa Weatherspoon expressed disapproval and spoke with Carter regarding the inappropriate conduct, indicating her belief that the team would learn from the experience.

Furthermore, Angel Reese, a forward for the Sky, incurred a $1,000 fine for failing to fulfill media obligations after Saturday’s game. She faced criticism for seemingly supporting Carter’s action but clarified that she was simply supporting her teammate.

Conversely, Fever coach Christie Sides denounced Carter’s foul as “unacceptable” and commended Clark for maintaining her composure despite facing physical challenges throughout the season.

Clark shared her perspective on the physicality she encounters early in her career, expressing frustration with perceived double standards in opponent contact. Following the altercation with Carter, she shed light on her approach to handling such situations during games.

“It is what it is,” Clark said. “I feel like I’m just at the point where you accept it and don’t retaliate. Just let them hit you, be what it is, don’t let it get in your head and know it’s coming. I think at this point, I know I’m gonna take a couple hard shots a game, and that’s what it is. 

“I’m trying not to let it bother me, and just stay in the game and stay in what’s important. Because usually it’s the second person that gets caught if you retaliate or something. I’m just trying to stay in the game and focus on my team and focus on what’s important.”
