Caitlin Clark Surpasses 3,000 Career Points. Can Iowa's Prolific Scorer Break The Ncaa Record?

BY Robert j. matthews

There's more to Caitlin Clark than being the best player and logo-shooting star in college basketball. 

She's about to become the best scorer in NCAA women's basketball history, and maybe even in NCAA history. 

Clark is a senior All-American who led Iowa to the national title game in April.

She is on track to score more points than Kelsey Plum did in 2017 (3,527), which was her record. 

Even more amazing, she could beat Pete Maravich's record of 3,667 points set by men in 1970, before the 3-point line was invented. 

Clark began the 2023–24 season with 2,717 total points. She has scored an average of 29.6 points per game through 10 games. 

She's never scored less than 26.6 points per season, so she'll probably beat Plum's record by the end of February (if she stays fit).

On the other hand, this person has scored 40 points before, so it might happen sooner. 

Dec. 6 game against Iowa State: Clark scored 35 points as Iowa beat Iowa State 67–58. 

She also had nine rebounds, five assists, and made a 3-pointer in 68 straight games, which was the longest run in her career. In the NCAA, that is the best score.
