Caitlin Clark breaks NCAA women's basketball record

On Thursday night, Caitlin Clark broke the NCAA women’s basketball scoring record.

The Iowa Hawkeye star point guard sunk a three-pointer from distance to eclipse the mark of former Washington player Kelsey Plum, now the star of the WNBA reigning champion Las Vegas Aces. Clark, still only 22, also set a personal scoring record of 49 points at the game, claiming the Iowa one-game scoring record in the process.

The Gist’s Lauren Tuiskula has been covering the build up and the game this week. She joins host Scott Tong for more.
