Caitlin Clark surpasses Baylor great Brittney Griner, climbs to No. 4 on all-time scoring charts

Caitlin Clark is climbing the historical ranks once more.

With her latest 30-piece, Clark climbed to No. 4 on the all-time women’s college basketball scoring chart. Clark knocked down six 3-pointers and scored 32 points on 8-of-18 shooting in the No. 2 Iowa Hawkeyes‘ 96-50 blowout win over the Wisconsin Badgers.

In the process, Clark leapt past former Baylor great Brittney Griner. Griner, who starred with the Bears from the 2009-10 season through the 2012-13 season, scored 3,283 points over the course of her Baylor career and won a national championship with the Bears in 2012.

After her 10th game this season with 30 or more points, Clark has now scored 3,306 points during her Hawkeye career.

With just three names still in front on the all-time women’s college basketball scoring list, Clark is marching toward setting the new scoring record.

At her current pace, Clark will grab the No. 3 slot at Northwestern on Jan. 31, secure the No. 2 rank on Feb. 3 at Maryland and become women’s college basketball’s all-time scoring leader on Feb. 22 at Indiana.

Take a look at the top 10 all-time women’s college basketball scoring chart and who Clark is still tracking down.
