Caitlin Clark declares final postseason run with Iowa for 2024 WNBA Draft

Caitlin Clark enters the 2024 WNBA Draft, Sunday at No. 6 Iowa's Senior Day and No. 3 he announced on social media prior to Ohio State.

“I cannot fully express my gratitude to everyone who has supported me during my time at Iowa – my teammates who have made the last four years great; my coaches, trainers and staff who have always let me be myself; the hockey fans who fill Carver every night; and everyone who has come out to support us across the country, especially Young kids,” Clark said.

“Most importantly, none of this would have been possible without my family and friends who have stood by me through it all. You all made my dreams come true.

Clark's season has been an accumulation of accolades, his latest claim coming Wednesday when he scored 33 points in Iowa's 108-60 win over Minnesota to push his career point tally to 3,650. With that mark, Clark surpassed former Kansas player Lynette Woodard (3,649 points) as the AIAW large-school leading scorer on the college basketball scoring list. (The NCAA does not recognize Woodard's scoring mark in its own record books because she played from 1978 to 1981, shortly before the NCAA adopted women's athletics in 1982.)

In the same game, Clark sank her 155th 3-pointer, breaking the NCAA women's single-season record. He sank 8 of 14 3-pointers in Wednesday's contest, bringing his season total to 156.

Clark broke former Washington guard Kelsey Plum's NCAA Division I scoring record on Feb. 15 when she scored her 3,528th point.
