Caitlin Clark Becomes NCAA Women’s All-Time Leading Scorer

caitlin clarkCaitlin Clark broke Lynette Woodard’s record of 3,649 points. As a result, Clark is now the NCAA Women’s all-time leading scorer. Also, she is 18 points away from breaking Pete Maravich’s NCAA overall scoring record.

Clark, who averages over 30 points per game, is in an excellent position to surpass Maravich in Sunday's regular-season finale between Iowa and No. 2 Ohio State.

According to pay per head bookie experts, Clark broke Taylor Pierce's 2019 single-season record for the most 3-pointers scored (155) just minutes before she passed Woodard for the NCAA record.

Clark had a triple-double in the Iowa 108-60 thrashing of Minnesota, scoring 33 points while dishing out 12 assists and grabbing 10 rebounds. She needed 32 points to tie Woodard going into the game, and she nearly reached halfway in four minutes.

NCAA Women’s All-Time Leading Scorer

Under the auspices of the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women, Woodard accumulated her points from 1977 to 1981. Before 1982, when women's collegiate basketball was first sanctioned, the NCAA would not recognize any players or statistics from the sport.

So, Woodard was the best collegiate basketball player of all time for many years, but no one ever acknowledged her as the game's all-time top scorer. A Hall of Famer at Francis Marion University (Division II) from 1975–1979, Pearl Moore scored 4,061 points, yet the NCAA still does not recognize her.

With plenty more to do in her last games for Iowa (presuming she accepts the WNBA offer for another year of collegiate play), Clark has finally put the record disparity to rest.

The Hawkeyes' match against Ohio State, the Big Ten Tournament, and the NCAA tournament make up the rest of Clark's season. There are still up to ten games for Clark, since Iowa is presently ranked third in the Big Ten and is expected to receive a double-bye in the conference tournament.
