Caitlin Clark Breaks the all-time Scoring Mark for Women’s Basketball in the NCAA

On Thursday, Caitlin Clark surpassed the all-time scoring mark for women’s basketball in the NCAA while leading Iowa to a 106-89 victory over Michigan.

The big picture: With his historic three-pointer in the first quarter, the West Des Moines native broke the record set by former Washington standout Kelsey Plum, who scored 3,527 points in her career.

In terms of the stats, Clark set a new programme mark for Iowa by finishing the game with a career-high 49 points.

According to the NCAA, she is the first Division I player to record more than 3,000 points, 1,000 assists, and 800 rebounds.

What’s happening: Pete Maravich set the men’s record for lifetime points with 3,667 points, set five decades ago. The Hawkeyes star, who averages more than 32 points per game, is closing close on that total.

Notable: At Carver-Hawkeye Arena, congratulations were shown on the video board by friends and family.

In an interview following the game, Clark stated, “I started crying watching that video just because I’m filled with so much gratitude and love.”

“The way these fans support women’s basketball is so special.”

In the meantime, a video featuring congratulations to Clark from other sports legends, such as Tom Brady, was uploaded online by the Big Ten Network.
