Caitlin Clark Breaks NCAA Scoring Record in Final Home Game for Iowa Hawkeyes

Caitlin Clark, a 22-year-old senior and the top-seeded Iowa Hawkeyes, scored 32 points in their 64-54 win against West Virginia on Monday night in Iowa City. During her final collegiate home game, Clark set a new scoring record for the NCAA Division I women’s basketball tournament.

As the NCAA Division I all-time leading scorer, Clark’s performance in the 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 the 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 her overall experience.

Clark credited the team’s composure, especially during difficult moments in the game. She highlighted the importance of using their home crowd for support and praised their experience and resilience. Next, the Hawkeyes will face Colorado in Albany on Saturday in a rematch of last year’s Sweet 16 game.
