Caitlin Clark is putting in extra hours on the court with the help of her boyfriend, Connor McCaffery.

After the Indiana Fever's win over the Atlanta Dream on Thursday, June 13, the 22-year-old superstar rookie was spotted on the court at an empty Gainsbridge Fieldhouse practicing her shooting with McCaffery, 25.

In videos shared by reporters Brett Bensley and Dominic Miranda, McCaffery is seen playing defense for Clark as she practices her midrange shooting.

Clark was held to seven points in Thursday's victory. Aliyah Boston, the Fever's No. 1 overall pick the year before Clark was drafted, had 27 points in the win.

McCaffery wore an Indiana Pacers Basketball while helping his girlfriend practice shooting at the arena. A fellow former Iowa Hawkeye, McCaffery is on the staff for the NBA's Pacers, who also play at the Gainsbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
