Iowa Hawkeyes star, makes history with 3,000 career points in win over rivals

Caitlin Clark, Iowa Hawkeyes star, is on the verge of breaking college basketball history, trailing just the NCAA women’s all-time leading scorer by eight points.

Following Iowa’s shock loss to the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Sunday, Las Vegas Aces star Kelsey Plum took to X to congratulate Clark on her historic achievement, only to find that the 22-year-old has yet to break her all-time scoring mark.
Plum has 3,527 points in her career for the Washington Huskies, and she knows it’s only a matter of time before she loses her scoring lead to Clark, who has 3,520.

“Congratulations on the record and your full season! I appreciate everything you do for the game; you have my whole respect and love! Plum said on X on Sunday, “See you at the next level, hopefully sooner than later,” then corrected herself a few minutes later.

Clark is expected to break Plum’s record during the Hawkeyes’ next game, Thursday against the Michigan Wolverines, but she fell seven points short of the all-time mark despite a 31-point performance in Iowa’s 82-79 loss.

Clark and the Hawkeyes return to their home court on Thursday, where she has the opportunity to make NCAA women’s basketball history at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
