Live from New York, it was Caitlin Clark!

The now-former Hawkeye women’s basketball National Player of the Year appeared on Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update” segment Saturday, and let co-anchor Michael Che have it for making jokes about the women’s game.

Che said “The University of Iowa announced that basketball star Caitlin Clark will have her jersey retired — and replaced with an apron.”

A few seconds later, Clark joined the Update set to great applause. Che backtracked when Clark told him she heard the apron joke, then co-anchor Colin Jost joined the fun by sharing a series of past jokes Che has made about women’s sports.

Clark said she wrote some jokes, and asked Che to read them. One of them:

“The Indiana Fever have the first pick in this Monday’s draft. A reminder that Indiana Fever is an WNBA team and not what Michael Che gave to dozens of women at Purdue University.”

“See,” said Clark. “That’s a good joke about women’s sports.”


Before she left, Clark gave Che an apron she autographed.

“Thank you, I can’t wait to give this to my girlfriend,” Che said.

“You don’t have a girlfriend, Michael,” Clark fired back.

At show’s end, Clark was joined on stage with Iowa teammates Gabbie Marshall, Kate Martin and Jada Gyamfi, guest host Ryan Gosling, musical guest Chris Stapleton, Kate Mackinnon, Emily Blunt and the SNL cast.

Clark is in New York for Monday night’s WNBA draft.
