Caitlin Clark has cemented her name in the history books of women’s NCAA basketball. The Iowa Hawkeyes guard fulfilled predictions and broke the record for the most career points, surpassing Kelsey Plum’s previous mark.

Clark entered the game against the Michigan Wolverines with 3,520 points, just seven points shy of Plum’s 3,527, set during the 2017 season. With the record within her grasp, Clark made history in the first quarter of the game.

The historic shot occurred with 7:44 minutes remaining in the opening quarter of the match, which took place at Kinnick Stadium at the University of Iowa.

Clark received an inbound pass on her team’s court, dribbled a few meters, and launched the shot from just past the halfway line. The ball sailed through the net without touching the rim, prompting the crowd to erupt in applause to celebrate the home player’s historic achievement.

What’s next for Clark

Analysts and fans anticipated Clarkbreaking the record during her team’s game against Nebraska on Monday. However, the Cornhuskers offered more resistance than expected, delaying Clark’s celebration to the next game.

This season, the Iowa guard has averaged 32.1 points per game, with her lowest scoring output being 21 points against the Florida Gulf Coast Eagles in late November. These numbers made it certain that the record would be broken in this game.

With four more games remaining in the regular season, Clark is poised to set a high standard for future generations. The Hawkeyes still have matches against Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota, and Ohio State.

The controversy over the broadcast

Clark’s achievement was somewhat overshadowed by controversy surrounding the broadcast. The game was exclusively available on the Peacock streaming service, owned by NBCUniversal.

As expected, fans expressed their displeasure with the network’s decision on social media, demanding that the game be broadcast on traditional television. Despite the protests, the network stuck to its plan, and the game was only available via streaming.
