Women’s basketball has always taken a backseat to men’s basketball, but that’s starting to change. Now, there’s a new, four-part series, “Full Court Press,” from Peyton Manning’s Omaha Productions and Words & Pictures, in partnership with ESPN+, that follows the stories of three ladies during their time in college basketball: Iowa guard Caitlin Clark, South Carolina center Kamilla Cardoso and UCLA guard Kiki Rice.

Clark, of course, is now with the Indiana Fever. Cardoso is with the Chicago Sky, and Rice is still in college and playing for UCLA. This documentary offers “exclusive interviews and unparalleled behind-the-scenes access documenting elite collegiate women’s basketball stars from current record-breaking season,” according to the official ESPN+ series show synopsis.

“Caitlin Clark is finishing the 2023-24 season as one of the most accomplished players in college basketball history, with the Iowa senior guard capturing a number of records, headlined by the all-time NCAA scoring mark,” the “Full Court Press” synopsis states. “Before heading to the WNBA as the likely number one overall pick in the draft, Caitlin looks to lead her team back to the NCAA championship game – this time leaving with the title.”

The show is called “Full Court Press,” and it’s streaming now. One aspect of it that’s getting some interesting attention is Clark’s breakfast. Since Clark is such a remarkable athlete, people often wonder what she eats. It might not be what you think. But, hey, anyone who gets LaBron James’ attention must know what she’s doing.

According to producer Hannah Bier, when they were filming together, Bier would almost always buy Clark breakfast. Clark was a fan of having the same thing every day, too. According to Athlon Sports, Bier said Clark would request a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich from a fast food chain, such as McDonald’s. As for her cup of java, she would also request an iced macchiato with vanilla sweet cream cold foam from Starbucks.

That might seem like a lot of sugar, fat and carbohydrates. But, Clark burns so many calories on the court, so she needs the extra fuel. Now, I’m hungry, but I should probably opt for a lighter choice.

Back to the documentary, “Full Court Press.” In a press release, Manning, founder of Omaha Productions, talked about how excited he was to get behind this series. “I remember what it meant to the University of Tennessee and the entire state when Pat Summitt led the Lady Vols to back-to-back national titles during my time in Knoxville. We’re excited to share the stories of these three amazing women to a national audience at this incredible moment for women’s basketball.”

Director Kristen Lappas added, “As someone who has grown up a devout fan of the women’s game, I am thrilled that we are able to make this show at this pivotal moment in the history of the sport. To be able to pull back the curtain and document Caitlin Clark’s historic season has been a privilege for our entire team. Each of our three players brings a unique set of storylines to the table, and we hope we’re able to capture both the excitement and the complexities surrounding what it means to be an elite female basketball player in 2024.”
