Caitlin Clark moves atop D1 women’s career points per game list

Caitlin Clark is going to the Final Four this weekend with yet another turning point on her resume: She’s the all-time females’s Division I leader in points per video game, too.

For now, a minimum of.

Clark’s 41-point effort that led Iowa previous LSU on Monday night raised her profession scoring average to 28.47 points per video game. That puts her No. 1 on the all-time Division I females’s points per video game list, simply ahead of Mississippi Valley State’s Patricia Hoskins — who balanced 28.38 points in 110 video games from 1985 through 1989.

Clark’s profession average was 28.375 points getting in Monday. She required 30 indicate pass Hoskins on the Division I females’s career-average list.

Of course, she’s still playing. So, it’s not particular yet that Clark — who is going to the WNBA after this season — will complete No. 1 in females’s average.

Clark would require a minimum of 17 points versus UConn in the nationwide semifinals on Friday night to keep her profession average ahead of Hoskins. If Iowa wins Friday and plays in the championship game video game on Sunday, Clark would require a minimum of 46 points over the 2 Final Four video games to stay atop the list.

Clark is currently the all-time Division I scoring leader with 3,900 overall points. That’s 233 ahead of males’s Division I tape holder Pete Maravich and 373 ahead of Kelsey Plum — who had actually been the females’s all-time record-holder before Clark passed her previously this season.

Clark likewise ended up being the all-time 3-pointers made leader at the females’s Division I level on Monday night. Clark linked on 9 threes versus LSU, offering her 540 for her profession — 3 more than the previous record holder, Taylor Robertson of Oklahoma.

Among Clark’s other significant females’s Division I records:

— She’s the only gamer in females’s Division I history with a minimum of 3,000 points and 1,000 helps. Only 2 others (Sabrina Ionescu and Courtney Vandersloot) reached 2,000 points and 1,000 helps.

— Barring something extremely unlikely, she will end up being the very first three-time season scoring champ in the females’s Division I period.

— Clark’s 1,183 points (and counting) this season is the most by any gamer in a season, topping the record of 1,109 by Plum.

— Clark’s 193 3-pointers (and counting) this season are another females’s Division I record, well ahead of the mark of 154 set by Idaho’s Taylor Pierce.
