3 point shooting like Caitlin Clark

Caitlin Clark has been a phenomenon is there anyone in Australia that can shoot the 3 ball like her? Maybe Amy Atwell ... any up and comers?

Swain probably the closest.

You think Swain has a better 3 ball than Atwell Weedy?

Statistically not at the moment, but swain is more like Clark than Atwell imo.

we will see a lot more of her style in the future - better shooting %s from outside - so expect to see it more.

Daly from SA would be my bet as the next shooter like Clark. Hasn't got the range as yet but does have the quick release.

Smh at this thread.
The short answer, No, there is no player that shoots like Clark in Australia.
The comment from Pinch that a 14 year old is the next best option to shoot like Clark is one of the most ridiculous comments I've ever read on this forum.
Being serious, Atwell can catch and shoot as good as any but can’t put the ball on the floor. I would take Bec Allen / Sami Whitcomb above any within Australia but they’re not in the same stratosphere as Clark.

Agree Blues, absurd take.

Not at the same level yet, there was a kid in Youth League Women last season broke the record for most 3s in a NSW basketball season 108 in 21 games. Mainly a catch and shoot.

We will see in 5 years if it's an absurd take. In now did I say she is now, I said will be the next best shooter we produce.

I'm not even sure she's the best shooter in that comp but yes I'll be eagerly awaiting the results in 5 years

We should heap as much pressure on this kid as possible by calling her the next Caitlin Clark at age 13

Totally agree with you Blues67. Absurd comments from Pinch. Smells a bit like a parent or someone close who might have shares??

I have only seen Daly play a handful of games at U14 Clubs and SCC but I can't remember if I even saw her hit an outside shot! Some were from a long way out. She was one of the better players in the 2010 age group.
But just absurd stuff to base the original above comments on. And just because a girl releases it quickly does not mean they are a good shooter, it is just 1 of many key elements.
Imagine the pressure on the poor kid the next couple of years to match Caitlin Clark's No.1 draft position. A bit unfair on the young kid I say.

In the last NBL1 Season Swain shot the 3 at 28 %. -----38/132

So my take is that Swain is nothing like Atwell and Atwell is nothing like Clarke and god knows what some 13 year is like.

Pinch...BIG call and i hope you're right!
Looking at her recent stats, 4 x 3 pointers in her last 7 district games and 43 from her last 41 games!

Wouldn't look too deeply at district stats for anyone. Competition is poor except for a few teams in all ages for boys and girls. It’s all about national comps.

Wow. Best results under most pressure too.

Wouldn't some players love the green light to shoot 15-20 3s in a game.
