Clark Makes History



Iowa's Caitlin Clark broke the NCAA Division I women's basketball scoring record last night, passing 3,527 points minutes into the first quarter in the Hawkeyes' game against Michigan. The previous record-holder was former Washington Huskies player Kelsey Plum.


The 22-year-old point guard averages 32.1 points per game, including a nation-leading 5.2 3-pointers made per game. She became the first player in NCAA Division I history—men's or women's—to achieve both 3,000 points and 1,000 assists in her career. The reigning Naismith College Player of the Year is credited with elevating women's basketball, breaking attendance and viewership records—the Hawkeyes have played in four of the six most-watched women's college basketball games this season, including almost 1.8 million viewers on Super Bowl Sunday.

With four regular-season games and the postseason remaining, Clark may pass the men's record of 3,667 points set by Pete Maravich in 1970. She also trails a pair of players from the pre-NCAA era: Lynette Woodard (3,649) and Pearl Moore (4,061). Clark is widely projected to be the top pick in the upcoming WNBA Draft.
