Caitlin Clark to Break Record Tonight – February 15

Updated:

Caitlin Clark is the best women’s college basketball player in the country. She will etch her name in the NCAA record books one more time tonight when her Iowa Hawkeyes host the Michigan Wolverines in a Big Ten matchup. Clark, a 6-0 guard, is just eight points shy of the NCAA career record for points scored. Caitlin Clark averages 32.1 points per game this season and Iowa (22-3) is currently ranked No. 4 in the nation.

It’s rare that a women’s college basketball player gets so much hype, but Caitlin Clark is something special. When Iowa played Nebraska on the road last week, there were over 1,000 people waiting outside of Pinnacle Bank Arena in hopes of scoring tickets. The game had been sold out for six weeks. That’s the Caitlin Clark effect. Tickets for that Nebraska game on the secondary market were going for over $1,000! 

The Legend of Caitlin Clark 

With eight points tonight, Caitlin Clark will become the all-time leading scorer in NCAA women’s college basketball history. She will pass Kelsey Plum, who scored 3,527 points for Washington from 2013-17. Clark will do it with four more games (after tonight) left on the schedule. Then, Iowa will run through the Big Ten tournament before Caitlin Clark attempts to lead the Hawkeyes back to the NCAA women’s tournament Final Four. 

Caitlin Clark was the big reason why Iowa played in its first-ever national championship game last season. Iowa lost to LSU, but Clark made her mark. She was the consensus national player of the year, an honor she will likely win again this year. Clark became the first player in history to record 900 points and 300 assists in a season.

Clark’s accomplishments are legendary. Caitlin Clark has 11 40-point games in her career, including three this season. That’s the most in NCAA history. She has 52 30-point games (15 this season), which is also the most in the NCAA over the last 25 years. Her 15 triple-doubles is second only to Sabrina Ionescu (26). There is more, but one thing is certain. Caitlin Clark is worth watching tonight.

A Dominant Effort on the Leaderboard

As dominant as Caitlin Clark is on the basketball court, that’s how dominant Sports Hub exclusive handicappers are on my daily leaderboard. Yesterday, the top-6 spots on the leaderboard were occupied by cappers that you can only find here at Sports Hub. 

The overall leader was Sean Kuchman who hit six of his eight picks to earn $380. Five more SportsHub guys were right behind him, all earning at least $284 yesterday.

Let’s take a look at who they were.

Trending Sports News 

It’s sad to report, but the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl parade was interrupted by gunfire. One person is reported dead and 22 others were injured in the shooting. There is a lot of other sports news including a huge Celtics win, a change in San Francisco, and some news about the upcoming Daytona 500.

Let’s check it out.

  • Celtics win by 50: The Boston Celtics crushed the Brooklyn Nets last night 136-86. The 50-point win was the Celtics second of the season, which makes them just the third team in NBA history to record multiple 50-point wins in a season. Boston will finish the first half of the season with an NBA-best 43-12 record. The win was also the 100th career victory for head coach Joe Mazzulla.
  • 49ers fire DC: After just one season with San Francisco, defensive coordinator Steve Wilks has been fired. The 49ers took a step backward on defense this season, even though they were still third in points allowed per game (17.5) this season.
