Caitlin Clark makes more 3-point history in Elite Eight matchup with LSU


Caitlin Clark continues to etch her name into the history books.

The Iowa senior hit the 538th three-pointer of her collegiate career in Monday’s Eight Eight matchup against LSU, making her the NCAA’s all-time Division I record-holder.

Clark, who came into the game with 531 made 3s, made seven of her 14 attempts from deep — several of them coming from way behind the arc at MVP Arena in Albany.

It’s the latest record-setting performance for Clark, who also owns the Division-I scoring record, which she broke with her 3,668th point on March 3 against Ohio State.
