Caitlin Clark Breaks NCAA Scoring Record in Iowa’s Victory Over Ohio State

156

Caitlin Clark solidified her position as the top scorer in NCAA Division I history during Iowa’s 93-83 victory against Ohio State. Clark required only 18 points to surpass Pete Maravich’s record before the match. 

With barely a second remaining in the first half, she was awarded two free throws following a technical foul on Cotie McMahon. By making both shots, Clark solidified her position as the top scorer in college basketball history.

Throughout the course of this season, Clark has added a number of awards to her already impressive return. These include breaking Iowa’s single-game scoring record, becoming the Big Ten’s all-time leader in assists and scoring, becoming the player with the most 30-point games in Division I history, breaking the record for the most triple-pointers made in a single game, holding the Big Ten career record for 3-pointers, and also holding the NCAA single-season record for 3-pointers.

LeBron James, the current leader in NBA scoring history, and Billie Jean King, a 39-time Grand Slam champion, both expressed their support for Clark’s latest achievement, which obtained notice throughout social media.

Just a few days ago, Clark said that she will be forgoing her final year of eligibility in order to declare for the 2018 WNBA Draft. This newest accomplishment comes just a few days after she made the news public.

In the days following Virginia Tech’s victory over Virginia by a score of 80-75, head coach Kenny Brooks struggled to contain his emotions as he discussed the injury. He did not provide any information on the type and severity of the injuries, but when he was asked for details, he failed to elaborate on her current condition. 

Kitley is a probable first-round choice in the 2017 WNBA draft. She has been named an All-American by the Associated Press twice and is currently the reigning Player of the Year for the Atlantic Coast Conference.
