Caitlin Clark Breaks Women’s Scoring Record in Single Season as Iowa Advances to Sweet 16

Caitlin Clark, the top-seeded Iowa Hawkeyes, scored 32 points in a hard-fought 64-54 win over eighth-seeded West Virginia in the second round of the NCAA women’s basketball tournament on Monday night in Iowa City. During her final collegiate home game, the 22-year-old senior set a new scoring record and brought her career points total to 3,830.

Clark’s performance on the court was nothing short of impressive. In the fourth quarter, West Virginia tied the game after going on a 10-0 run but the Hawkeyes responded with a powerful 12-2 run to secure their victory. Clark also set a new NCAA Division I women’s record for most points scored in a single season with 1,113, surpassing the previous record set by Washington’s Kelsey Plum in 2016-17.

After hosting the first and second round tournament games, Iowa’s NCAA tournament road now goes through Albany, New York. This means that Clark has played her final collegiate game in Iowa City. Following the game, Clark expressed gratitude and pride for the program, her teammates and overall experience. She highlighted how important it was for them to use their home crowd for support during difficult moments in the game and praised their resilience.

Next up for the Hawkeyes is a rematch with fifth-seeded Colorado in Sweet 16 round in Albany on Saturday. It is certain that Clark will be missed by everyone at Iowa as she heads off to pursue her WNBA dreams but she will always be remembered as one of best players to ever come through that program.
