Caitlin Clark is closing in on history.

The Iowa Hawkeyes star is on track to break the NCAA Division I women's basketball scoring record this week.

Clark is chasing down Kelsey Plum's all-time record. The Las Vegas Aces star racked up 3,527 career points over four seasons at the University of Washington.

But just six-plus seasons after Plum departed for the WNBA as the NCAA scoring leader, her record is on the verge of being topped by the 2023 Naismith Player of the Year.

How many more points does Caitlin Clark need to break NCAA scoring record?

Clark is just eight points away from breaking Plum's record. The senior guard is currently sitting at 3,520 points.

Clark, who leads the nation in scoring at 32.1 points per game, hasn't scored fewer than 21 points in a game so far this season.

When is Caitlin Clark's next game?

That means Clark is very likely to break the all-time scoring record when the No. 4 Hawkeyes host the Michigan Wolverines on Thursday night. The Big Ten matchup from Carver-Hawkeye Arena in Iowa City, Iowa, will air exclusively on Peacock.

Along with Clark's chase for history, the Hawkeyes will also be looking to bounce back from just their third loss of the season. Iowa was upset on the road by Nebraska Sunday, falling 82-79. Clark tallied 31 points, 10 assists, eight rebounds and four steals in the loss.
