IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Hannah Stuelke scored a career-high 47 points and Caitlin Clark added 27 points in her quest for the scoring record as No. 2 Iowa defeated Penn State 111-93 on Thursday night.

Clark now has 3,489 career points and needs just 39 more to break the NCAA women’s basketball career scoring record held by Kelsey Plum.

“We were just trying to win the game,” said Iowa coach Lisa Bluder when asked about Clark’s pursuit of the record. “It’s going to happen. That’s not important. It’s important to win this game.”

Iowa plays at Nebraska on Sunday before hosting Michigan next Thursday,

“I would rather she break it at home,” Bluder said. “Our fans deserve that. But believe me, our No. 1 priority will be to win the game at Nebraska.”

Clark, who was 8 of 23 from the field, had 15 assists for her 56th career double-double. She also committed a career-high 12 turnovers.
