IOWA CITY, IOWA- MARCH 3: Guard Caitlin Clark #22 and guard Kate Martin #20 of the Iowa Hawkeyes celebrates in the confetti after senior day festivities after the match-up against the Ohio State Buckeyes at Carver-Hawkeye Arena on March 3, 2024 in Iowa City, Iowa.

Davey Mac here with another a big-time Sports Report for ya on a Monday!  Lots of action in the NBA as a Knicks star gets injured and LeBron does something no one else has ever done.  Plus, hockey scores and match-ups.  A sad passing in the world of football.  And MLB Spring Training.  But first!

Iowa University’s basketball phenom, Caitlin Clark, has broken yet another record…and this one is a biggie.  By scoring 35 points in yesterday’s win over Ohio State, she now surpasses “Pistol” Pete Maravich as the single greatest scorer in Division I history…female or male!  Maravich had scored 3,667 points in his legendary career…and now Clark stands at 3,685.

It really is amazing to see how many records Clark has broken as she quite possibly now become the greatest women’s basketball player in college b-ball history.  She keeps breaking records…and her team keeps winning.

Right now, Iowa is ranked Number 6 in the nation.  But after beating No. 2 Ohio State yesterday, they could go up in the rankings.  And Clark is leading the way with her stellar play.
