In an interview with Matthew Byne of ClutchPoints, during the Indiana Fever’s practice, the 22-year-old star discussed the importance of Aliyah Boston.

As per Clark’s statements, Boston has assumed the leadership role on this young Fever team and is doing a good job of keeping the spirits high in the Fever camp.

“She just wants the best for every single person. She’s such a positive light in our locker room, she’s a great voice, she’s always there whether things are great or when the things aren’t as great, she’s just a very consistent person in our locker room.” 

The former Iowa Hawkeyes superstar then spoke about her friendship with Boston and how the two developed great chemistry right from the get-go. Clark added,

“She’s been somebody that’s been really helpful throughout my rookie year, obviously having gone through it just a year ago. I think you can tell our chemistry is really coming along and a lot of that has just been developed through games. So the more practice that we get together, only the better it’s gonna get. But, I’m really thankful for her.”

On numerous occasions throughout the season, it has been evident that Boston has been more of a mentor figure for Clark. Whether it is the forward motivating the rookie during the game or praising her in the interview, the camaraderie that they share is visible.
