All-Time Scorer Caitlin Clark Leads Iowa to Sweet 16 with Record-Breaking Performance in NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament

Caitlin Clark, the top-seeded Iowa Hawkeyes’ star player, scored 32 points in their 64-54 win over West Virginia in the second round of the NCAA women’s basketball tournament on Monday night. As she played her final collegiate home game at Iowa City, Clark set a new scoring record with her performance.

Clark is the all-time leading scorer in NCAA Division I and her performance in this game brought her career points total to 3,830. In the fourth quarter, West Virginia tied the game after going on a 10-0 run, but the Hawkeyes responded with a 12-2 run to secure their victory. Additionally, Clark 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.

As they now head to Albany, New York for their next round of games, Clark expressed gratitude and pride for her time at Iowa and for her teammates. She highlighted the importance of using their home crowd for support and praised their experience and resilience. The Hawkeyes will face off against fifth-seeded Colorado in the Sweet 16 round on Saturday in Albany in a rematch of a Sweet 16 game from last year.
