Caitlin Clark passed both Jackie Stiles and Kelsey Mitchell to move into second on the NCAA women’s basketball Division I career scoring list. Kelsey Plum, who scored 3,527 points at Washington, is the only player ahead of her.

Clark came into Wednesday’s game against Northwestern in fourth on the list, but was easily able to pass Stiles and Mitchell, who are separated by just nine points.

Clark moved ahead Mitchell into second-place in the second quarter, when she drove through the defense for a lefty layup. Passing Mitchell, who played at Ohio State, also made Clark the Big Ten’s all-time leading scorer.

Clark got on the board with a logo three, which put her just one point short of Stiles. Another deep trey, this time pulling up in transition, moved her to third in the first quarter.

This is just the latest in a string of accomplishments for Clark, who passed Brittney Griner into fourth place two weeks ago. Just before New Year’s, Clark became the Big Ten’s all-time assists leader.
