Caitlin Clark Made More History This Weekend

Caitlin Clark continues to make history with each passing week, and this past weekend was no exception.

During Iowa's 94-71 win against Minnesota on Saturday, Clark became the first player in Division 1 basketball history — men's or women's — to record over 3,000 points, 900 assists and 800 rebounds in a career. 

However, that wasn't the only history Clark made before 2023 came to a close. Coming into Saturday's game, Clark needed five assists to become the Iowa women's basketball all-time leader in that category. She reached that mark before halftime.

What's more, Clark — who finished Saturday's game with 35 points, 10 assists and five rebounds — also became the Big Ten's all-time assist leader. Therefore, Clark broke three major records all on one day, which is just another day at the office for one of the best college basketball players we've ever seen.

When asked what she might do with a special basketball or some other sort of trophy that commemorates her record-breaking Saturday, Clark said, "I have a couple storage units back home my parents put stuff in. But like my 3,000-point ball has just been sitting in our locker room. Sometimes, it gets lost in my locker. I don't know. Until I clean it out or make one of my teammates clean my locker. They get so annoyed they offer to clean it for me."

Considering all of the records that Clark already has and will continue to amass, we can't blame her for losing track of some of her commemorative knickknacks. 

Of course, the biggest record Clark is currently chasing — aside from a national championship — is the all-time Division I women's basketball scoring record, which is held by Kelsey Plum.

Clark is currently sitting at 3,149 career points, which is 378 shy of Plum's record of 3,527. Given that Clark is averaging 30.9 points per game so far this season, that puts her on pace to break Plum's record in about 13 games from now — and Iowa has 16 regular season games left (not to mention any postseason play that it'll surely take part in). So if Clark manages to remain healthy, breaking Plum's record seems all but certain.

Then there's Pete Maravich's all-time NCAA Division I scoring record, regardless of gender, of 3,667 points. If Clark can keep up her current scoring output, she's on pace to break that record somewhere around the first game of Iowa's postseason.

Therefore, more records seem to be in store for Iowa's basketball icon.
