EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) — Iowa star Caitlin Clark has moved into second place on the career scoring list for NCAA women’s basketball.

Clark converted a layup with 4:58 left in the first half at Northwestern on Wednesday, giving her 14 points on the night and 3,403 for her career. She moved ahead of Ohio State’s Kelsey Mitchell (3,402) after she passed Missouri State’s Jackie Stiles (3,393) for third on a 3-pointer with 2:04 left in the first quarter.

Kelsey Plum, who starred at Washington from 2013-17, tops the women’s scoring list with 3,527 points. The men’s leader is LSU’s Pete Maravich, who finished his career with 3,667 points.

By passing Mitchell, Clark became the career scoring leader for the Big Ten Conference.

Clark’s visit to Northwestern attracted a sellout crowd to Welsh-Ryan Arena, with most of the fans clad in Iowa colors. The senior guard received a loud ovation when she was introduced with the starting lineup.

The Hawkeyes (20-2) downed the Wildcats (7-14) 110-74. Clark dropped 35 points in the contest, and tallied 10 rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block.
