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.
