Caitlin Clark joins rare company to hold NCAA records across men’s and women’s basketball

Iowa’s Caitlin Clark on Sunday became the NCAA Division I all-time leading scorer across men’s and women’s basketball. Clark’s career points total surpassed a 54-year mark set by another revolutionary player in former LSU star “Pistol” Pete Maravich, who finished with 3,667 points. 

It was a week for the record books. One game earlier, Clark — a catalyst to the recent rapid growth of women’s basketball — also passed Lynette Woodard’s Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women scoring record of 3,649 points. She also broke the Division I women’s single-season 3-point record of 154, set by Idaho’s Taylor Pierce.

In surpassing Maravich, Clark joined an elite group of women to hold a record across NCAA men’s and women’s basketball. 

While not a comprehensive list, below are 10 others to hold such marks.
