Caitlin Clark claims that she finds it difficult to comprehend the term “NCAA Division.”

In less than three weeks, Caitlin Clark broke three significant scoring records for college basketball.

The Iowa star can now finally breathe.

“It’s difficult for me to comprehend everything going on because I’m so focused on making this team win and be so great,” she remarked. “I am attempting to savor the present.”

Sunday’s thrilling regular season came to an end when sixth-ranked Hawkeyes defeated No. 2 Ohio State 93-83 in Iowa City, with Clark surpassing Pete Maravich as the NCAA Division I overall scoring leader.

She broke Kelsey Plum’s Division I record two weeks prior and Lynette Woodard’s major college women’s scoring record four days earlier.

Many observers will want to place a question mark next to Clark’s achievement because Maravich scored 3,667 points in 83 games during three seasons at LSU (1967–70) without the use of a shot clock or 3-point line. His 54-year-old record was regarded as the holy grail.

Clark, who established her reputation on the 3-point shot and scored 35 points against the Buckeyes, will enter the Big Ten Tournament with 3,685 points from 130 games.

Coach Lisa Bluder of Iowa stated, “I hope it advances women’s sports even more, but in my opinion, you don’t have to break a man’s record to be recognized.” That is not required of you. It was important to beat Lynette’s record. I therefore find “Pistol Pete” to be admirable, but I also don’t want that to set the standard for women’s sports.
