LeBron James gives Caitlin Clark a salute for shattering the college basketball record.

President Joe Biden and LeBron James praised women’s basketball player Caitlin Clark for becoming the NCAA’s all-time leading scorer in both men’s and women’s collegiate basketball.

The Iowa Hawkeyes player led her team to victory on Sunday by scoring 35 points against Ohio State, a rival.

Additionally, it increased her career total of points to 3,685, surpassing Pete Maravich’s previous record.

Numerous celebrities, including rapper Travis Scott, were present at the game.

The Louisiana State University standout Mr. Maravich, known as “Pistol Pete” after amassing 3,667 points from 1967 to 1970, needed to be surpassed by the senior college player entering her final regular season game with 18 points to spare.

By the end of the second quarter, though, Ms. Clark had completed the task as she made two free throws, drawing thunderous applause from the spectators.

“Congratulations to @CaitlinClark22 for taking the top spot in scoring history!” In a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, Mr. James wrote. This past weekend, Mr. James set yet another record when he became the first player in NBA history to score 40,000 points.

“You’ve made your school proud with 3,685 points and counting,” stated Mr. Biden.
