Caitlin Clark is No. 2 women’s basketball scorer

Another Caitlin Clark game, and another sellout. Sound familiar?

The reigning national player of the year and Iowa’s star guard, Clark scored 35 and handed out 10 assists in a 110-74 Hawkeyes win at Northwestern on Wednesday night, where a sellout crowd of 7,039 got to see her tally the 54th double-double of her career.

Clark, who averages a nation-best 32.1 points per game, passed two women’s basketball greats Wednesday in her chase to break the NCAA women’s scoring record: Missouri State’s Jackie Stiles (3,393 points) and Ohio State’s Kelsey Mitchell (3,402). Clark is now No. 2 all-time with 3,424 career points. The record, set by former Washington All-American Kelsey Plum (3,527 points) in February 2017, is within reach.
