Iowa star Caitlin Clark is officially No. 2 on the all-time women’s college basketball scoring list with 3,489 career points. She has already made college basketball history, but the senior guard still has much of the 2023-24 season remaining and is well on her way to becoming the all-time leading scorer and breaking other records.

Last season, Clark put together historic statistics during the Women’s NCAA Tournament, including the first-ever 40-point triple-double. The 2023 Naismith Player of the Year kept that momentum going into this season, breaking Iowa’s all-time scoring record on Nov. 12 against Northern Iowa, which was her 103rd game with the Hawkeyes. 

In her last outing on Feb. 8, Clark put together a double-double of 27 points and 15 assists to help the Hawkeyes beat Penn State 111-93. Clark has now scored 20+ points in 109 of her 124 games with the Hawkeyes. She is now just 39 points away from breaking Kelsey Plum’s scoring record. 

Clark moved up to No. 2 on the all-time women’s college basketball scoring list after registering 35 points against Northwestern on Jan. 31. That performance also helped her become the Big Ten’s all-time leading scorer. In early January, Clark had her 10th career 40-point performance while hitting a buzzer-beating game-winner from the logo in Iowa’s 76-73 win against Michigan State. That was one of two triple-doubles she had in the same week. 

On Dec. 8, Clark became just the 15th woman to reach 3,000 career points. She achieved the milestone by registering 35 points against Iowa State, marking her 41st 30-point game. But her offense goes beyond scoring. Clark became the Big Ten’s all-time assist leader after dishing out 10 dimes against Minnesota on Dec. 30. She is now the only Division I player to have eclipsed 3,000 points, 900 assists and 800 rebounds. 

Clark is currently projected to break the Division I women’s scoring record Feb. 15 against Michigan. 

Next Iowa game: Sunday, Feb. 11 at Nebraska
