Caitlin Clark breaks NCAA women's basketball all-time scoring record, sets single-game record as well

Feb 16, 2024

Caitlin Clark grew up watching the most prolific scorers in Division I women’s college basketball and now her name sits above them.

The Iowa superstar broke the all-time scoring record on Thursday. She passed former record-holder Kelsey Plum, who poured in 3,527 career points over 139 games at Washington from 2013-17.

“The coolest thing is just the names I get to be around,” Clark, 22, said when she took over No. 2 on the list on Jan. 31. “Those are people that I grew up watching, especially Kelsey Plum, Brittney Griner, Kelsey Mitchell. Those are really, really great players.”

Clark, a 6-foot senior point guard, eclipsed the all-time mark against Michigan in her 126th game. She needed just eight points Thursday and hit the record-breaking shot early in the first quarter against the Wolverines.
