Clark came close last week to getting a triple-double, but was just a rebound shy of the mark. Today, she went over the top in the fourth quarter against the Liberty.

After Kayla Thornton missed a shot, Clark collected her 10th rebound, to go with 11 assists and 16 points, receiving a standing ovation from the crowd at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

The win capped a big week for Clark, who was earlier named to the WNBA all-star team.
