The Good News Story of the Year – Iowa’s Caitlin Clark moves up to second place in the NCAA woman’s basketball all-time scoring record book.
We’ve reported on her before – Caitlin Clark is in the history books and moving on up.
Last night Clark moved into second place all-time in women’s NCAA basketball scoring with a 35 point performance. Despite being double-teamed and targeted by all the teams Iowa faces, Clark is leading the NCAA in scoring, three pointers, and assists.
Iowa superstar Caitlin Clark added to her growing collection of milestones Wednesday night at Northwestern, moving into second place on the NCAA women’s all-time scoring list during the Hawkeyes’ 110-74 win.
Clark, the reigning Naismith women’s college player of the year, passed former Ohio State star Kelsey Mitchell (3,402) on a layup with 4:58 left in the second quarter. She entered Wednesday’s game fourth on the career scoring list — four points behind Missouri State‘s Jackie Stiles and 13 behind Mitchell. Clark’s second 3-pointer of the first quarter pushed her past Stiles.
Clark, who also overtook Mitchell as the Big Ten’s all-time leading scorer, finished with 35 points for her fifth straight 30-point game, matching the longest streak of her career. Now at 3,424 career points, Clark will set her sights on the NCAA’s all-time scoring record of 3,527, held by Washington‘s Kelsey Plum.
