Caitlin Clark continues to break records

As sixth-ranked Iowa defeated Minnesota 108-60 on Wednesday night, Caitlin Clark became the all-time leading women's scorer in major college basketball by scoring 33 points and posting her 17th triple-double in her career.


Additionally, Clark sank eight three-pointers for a total of 156 points, breaking the NCAA record for three-pointers made in a single season in 2023-24. She now has a total of 3,650 points in her career. Before the NCAA sanctioned the sport in 1977-81, Woodard had 3,649 points in his career as a Kansas basketball player. Clark has recently broken Kelsey Plum's NCAA scoring record for points scored with 3,527 earlier this month.


Among the Hawkeyes-heavy crowd of more than 14,000 at Williams Arena, Clark, who is the reigning AP Player of the Year, shot eight out of 14 from 3-point range. Clark and her crew sold out the 11th true road game in the 11 road games that they have played this season. Clark left little doubt she’d reach Woodard's record by dribbling left off a screen and swishing a 3-pointer from the top of the key. It was just 13 seconds into the game when this happened. After swishing her first four 3-pointers, three of them from extra deep, she had 15 points in the first 3:18 of the game, a great start to the game. She stood on business the rest of the night.

Now I have a question. In the event Caitlin Clark and the Hawkeyes win the NCAA championship, will that make her the greatest women's college basketball player of all time?
