Caitlin Clark has become the NCAA’s overall all-time scoring leader, passing the record held by LSU alumnus Pete Maravich during Iowa’s game on Sunday against Ohio State. 

Clark set the record on the second attempt on a pair of free throws from a technical foul. 

Maravich held the record since 1970, when his legendary LSU career ended with 3,677 points. 

Clark’s first attempt at the record, a 40-foot shot from beyond the Hawkeye logo, hit the front rim.

Clark earned the pair of free throws after the officials deemed Ohio State’s Cotie McMahon to have made unnecessary contact with her after the Buckeyes forward committed a personal foul. 

Clark set the all-time college basketball scoring on Sunday for Iowa against Ohio State 

Earlier this week, Clark had declared for the 2024 WNBA Draft, ending her career at Iowa after this month’s NCAA Tournament. 

The Hawkeyes are 25-4 and are nearly guaranteed a top-4 seed in the NCAA Tournament, meaning Iowa would host first and second round games in the postseason tournament. 

Clark will likely get two more chances to play in front of a hometown crowd in a few weeks, but Sunday serves as Senior Day. 

In addition, the NCAA is never a guarantee. A loss to Ohio State on Sunday and falling in the Hawkeyes’ Big Ten Conference Tournament opener could send them falling down the rankings. 

Clark now has the rest of her college career to extend her record.
