Clark led all scorers in both games with 45 against the Wolfpack and 22 at Wisconsin. The 45-point performance in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge was the most points by a Division I women’s basketball player this season. It was the fourth arena record Clark has set in her career.
Against the Badgers, Clark registered her seventh career triple-double with 22 points, 10 boards, 10 assists, two blocks, and two steals. Her seventh career triple-double broke the Big Ten record for most in a career by any men’s or women’s player in conference history.
