Clark moves into 2nd place on all-time scoring list in No. 3 Iowa's win over Northwestern


EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) — Iowa star Caitlin Clark moved into second on the NCAA women’s basketball career scoring list on Wednesday night, finishing with 35 points, 10 assists and six rebounds in the No. 3 Hawkeyes’ 110-74 victory over Northwestern.

Cheered on by a sellout crowd at Welsh-Ryan Arena filled with Iowa colors and dotted with Clark shirts, the senior guard went 11 for 22 from the field and 10 for 10 at the free-throw line. It was her 13th game this season with at least 30 points.

Northwestern (7-14, 2-8) lost its fifth straight game. Melannie Daley scored 19 points for the Wildcats, and Hailey Weaver finished with 13.

Clark passed Missouri State’s Jackie Stiles for third on the NCAA list when she made a 3-pointer with 2:04 left in the first quarter. She moved ahead of Ohio State’s Kelsey Mitchell when she converted a layup with 4:58 left in the first half, making her the career scoring leader for the Big Ten.

Clark finished the night with 3,424 points, departing to a big ovation with 4:23 remaining. Next up is Kelsey Plum, who starred at Washington from 2013-17 and tops the women’s scoring list with 3,527 points.

The game was tied at 59 with 4:09 left before Vann hit consecutive baskets. Her last one was the Sooners’ final one of the game.

Neither team scored again until Sahara Williams made the second of two free throws with 39 seconds left.

Nevaeh Tot was then fouled and hit only one free throw giving the Wildcats one more chance. Sundell’s 3 just before the buzzer was off.
