History was made on Thursday night during the Iowa women’s basketball 106–89 win over Michigan. Caitlin Clark, the senior standout point guard for the Hawkeyes, officially broke the NCAA Division I women’s basketball scoring record with her 49 point performance in Iowa City.

It was a record previously set by Kelsey Plum, who took the title while playing at the point guard position at the University of Washington in 2017.

Seven years later, the record belongs to Clark, who has now scored a total of 3,569 points during her four-year college career after Thursday’s game. Of course, the monumental moment earned her a lot of media attention and well-deserved congratulations, including a heartfelt message from LSU basketball star Angel Reese.

The fellow senior hooper took to social media platform X (formerly Twitter) to offer an inspiring message for Clark.

“Congratulations @CaitlinClark22,” she wrote in a quote tweet that included the official announcement from the Iowa women’s basketball account. “KEEP BREAKING RECORDS & MAKING HER-STORY!” Reese added.

The show of support for her fellow women’s basketball player was meaningful in its own right—but it had an added significance given their history. Last spring, during the women’s NCAA tournament, Reese received a lot of media attention after copying Clark’s typical “You Can’t See Me” celebration in the national championship game between the two programs. Soon after, the Hawkeyes standout defended Reese publicly, saying she didn’t deserve to be criticized.
