Watch: ESPN Host Slammed for Caitlin Clark Jab Live on Air

ESPN host Molly Qerim, known for her ties to UConn, faced criticism on social media and a reality check from Stephen A. Smith after she made a comment about Iowa point guard Caitlin Clark.

Qerim, while maintaining a respectful tone, suggested that Clark's success might be attributed to UConn's Paige Bueckers facing injuries in recent seasons.

Smith, however, challenged Qerim's assertion, stating that it sounded like excuses and that her bias toward UConn was influencing her perspective.

Qerim defended her stance, asserting that Bueckers' absence due to injuries might have impacted Clark's rise as a basketball standout.

The exchange between Qerim and Smith garnered attention on social media, with varying reactions to Qerim's viewpoint.

The debate over whether Bueckers' injuries influenced Clark's success remains unresolved, as noted by The Des Moines Register.

The upcoming matchup between Bueckers and Clark in the Final Four will further fuel discussions about their respective legacies in college basketball.
