Ticket prices continue to rise for Caitlin Clark's likely record-breaking game vs. Michigan

Clark needs eight points to break the NCAA women's scoring record

Thursday will likely be a historic night for Caitlin Clark and college basketball. The Iowa Hawkeyes guard needs only eight points to break Kelsey Plum's NCAA women's scoring record of 3,527.

Clark had a shot at history during Sunday's loss at Nebraska, but she recorded only 31 points — the 15th time this season she's reached the 30-point mark in a game for the No. 4-ranked Hawkeyes. She has scored single digits in a game only once in her entire collegiate career, and it came when she was a freshman.

Now back home at Carver-Hawkeye Arena against Michigan, everyone wants to be able to say they saw history being made when Clark, who is averaging 32.1 points per game this season, passes Plum for the record. That excitement is driving the secondary ticket market, and many of the 15,000-plus in attendance will have paid a pretty penny for the opportunity to see the record set.

Scan the various ticket reseller sites and you'll see places like SeatGeek, StubHub, TickPic and Vivid Seats offering single tickets available for upward of $1,000, with a few listings going way over that price.

The cheapest with fees? As of Wednesday morning, Vivid Seats had single-ticket offerings of $246, while StubHub's lowest was $270, and there was a SeatGeek listing for $292. Ticketmaster's lowest was $296. TickPick's cheapest for one seat was $337.

Face value for Iowa women's basketball home game tickets typically runs around $15 each.

The excitement around Clark has grown as the season has progressed. Interest, television ratings and ticket prices have continued to surge as fans have followed her chase for the record — not to mention the Hawkeyes' attempt to get back to the title game and win the first NCAA championship in program history.

Before this season, the women's basketball program had only sold out three games in its history. This year, season tickets were sold out in August.

Once Clark passes Plum, next in her sights will be LSU legend Pete Maravich, who holds the NCAA men's scoring record with 3,667 points. Clark is currently at 3,520 points, and with six games left in the Hawkeyes' regular season, it's realistic that she breaks that mark as well.
