Iowa Star Caitlin Clark Makes Division 1 Basketball History

BY Robert j. matthews

In Wednesday night's game against Iowa State, the Iowa star achieved a major milestone by becoming the first Division I player (men's or women's) to reach 3,000 points, 750 rebounds, and 750 assists in their career.

Clark needed 22 more points to reach 3,000. She scored those points in the third quarter.

The current National Player of the Year is now the 15th woman in Division I history to score 3,000 points.

Clark can now aim to beat Kelsey Plum's record of 3,527.

Clark has been scoring an average of 29.0 points per game this season. 

The Hawkeyes still have 20 more games to play in the regular season. 

Last month, the senior broke another one of Plum's records by playing her 39th game with at least 30 points. 

She scored 32 points in a game on November 26th against Kansas State and scored over 30 points again on Wednesday night.
