Best Twitter reactions to Caitlin Clark breaking NCAA scoring record

Iowa’s Caitlin Clark broke the NCAA women’s basketball scoring record Thursday night while also setting the Hawkeyes’ single-game scoring record (49) in a 106-89 victory over the Wolverines.

The record was previously held by Washington’s Kelsey Plum.

“Honestly, warming up, my shot just felt good,” Clark said. “So I knew it was going to be one of those nights, and I kind of played with a little bit more pep in my step. I knew that’s what this team needed coming off a loss.”

Clark is also on her way to breaking the NCAA men’s record of 3,667 set by LSU’s Pete Maravich from 1967 to 1970. After Thursday’s game, Clark had 3,569 points and four regular-season games remaining.

“Caitlin’s special,” said NBA star Stephen Curry. “The record speaks for itself, and it’s cool. From a scoring perspective, from a shooting perspective, just doing what she’s doing — she could pick anybody that she talks about in terms of being an inspiration. If she models something of her game after me, I don’t take that for granted.”
