Iowa women’s basketball star Caitlin Clark seems to make history every time she steps on the court.
The junior guard did so again Sunday, posting the seventh double-double of her college career in the No. 10 Hawkeyes’ dominant 102-71 win against Wisconsin.
With her 22 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds, she set a Big Ten record for most career triple-doubles, surpassing former Iowa star Sam Logic’s six. She also moved to 1,915 points in her career, fourth in Iowa women’s basketball history.
“For Caitlin to have the record for the most triple-doubles in Big Ten history is absolutely incredible,” coach Lisa Bluder said on the Hawkeye Radio postgame show. “Really proud of her for that. She could have done anything she wanted out there.”
She now sits tied for fourth in NCAA men’s and women’s basketball history, trailing Sabrina Ionescu (26), Kyle Collinsworth (12) and Chastadie Barrs (9).

The triple-double comes on the heels of several other historic performances from Clark.
She scored 45 points in a loss to No. 12 NC State last Thursday, marking the fifth time in her career she reached the 40-point mark.
The previous weekend, Iowa fell to No. 3 UConn, 86-79, but she posted a game-high 25 points, as well as seven rebounds and six assists.
With that stat line, she broke a record set by New York Liberty star Sabrina Ionescu during her time at Oregon, ESPN reported. The game marked the 35th of Clark’s career with at least 20 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists, passing Ionescu for the most of any NCAA Division I player in the Statspass era (since the 1999-00 season).
She’ll have more chances to etch her name in the history books this season, starting Wednesday in a rivalry contest against Iowa State. The No. 8 Cyclones’ lone loss of the season came against No. 6 North Carolina on Nov. 27.
