Caitlin Clark soared into second place on the NCAA Division I women’s all-time scoring list as Iowa dismantled Northwestern 110-74 on Wednesday in Evanston, Ill.

In front of the first-ever sellout crowd at a Northwestern women’s basketball game, Clark scored 35 points to boost her career total to 3,424, bringing her within 103 points of Washington legend Kelsey Plum’s all-time record.

Clark moved past former Missouri State star Jackie Stiles (3,393 career points) and former Ohio State great Kelsey Mitchell (3,402). Clark also unseated Mitchell as the Big Ten’s all-time leading scorer.

The Hawkeyes (20-2, 9-1 Big Ten) also got 17 points and nine rebounds from Hannah Stuelke. Clark added 10 assists and six rebounds as part of her record-breaking night.

Melannie Daley finished with 19 points and Hailey Weaver chipped in 13 for the Wildcats (7-14, 2-8), who were outshot 55.9 percent to 41.5 percent overall and were outrebounded 42-30.

Clark is 244 points shy of surpassing LSU’s Pete Maravich (3,667 career points) as Division I’s all-time leading scorer for both men’s and women’s basketball.

Oklahoma 66, No. 2 Kansas State 63

Skylar Vann racked up 21 points to help the Sooners upset the Wildcats in Norman, Okla., for their first win in nearly 20 years over a team ranked No. 2 or better in the AP poll.

Vann, who was named Big 12 Player of the Week on Monday, finished 9-for-18 from the field and grabbed eight rebounds as Oklahoma (14-6, 8-1 Big 12) knocked off a top-two team for the first time since beating then-No. 2 Texas in the 2004 Big 12 title game. Lexy Keys chipped in 10 points and hit three 3-pointers for the Sooners.

Gisela Sanchez matched her season high with 18 points for Kansas State (20-2, 9-1). The Wildcats’ Serena Sundell, who finished with 15 points and 10 rebounds, missed a potential game-tying 3-pointer from the left corner as time expired.

No. 10 Indiana 87, Maryland 73

Mackenzie Holmes poured in 23 points and Sara Scalia tacked on 22 as the Hoosiers held off the Terrapins in College Park, Md.

Holmes finished 8 of 14 from the field, while Scalia drilled half of her eight 3-point attempts and made 8 of 9 free throws as Indiana (18-2, 9-1 Big Ten) won at Maryland for the first time in program history.

Jakia Brown-Turner scored a season-high 22 points for Maryland (12-9, 4-6), which pulled within seven early in the fourth quarter before a flurry of free throws from Scalia helped Indiana pull away. The Terrapins played without leading scorer Shyanne Sellers (15.4 points per game), who was out with a knee injury.

No. 11 UConn 81, Villanova 60

Aaliyah Edwards scored 22 points to lead a quartet of double-digit scorers who helped the visiting Huskies pull away from the Wildcats.

Paige Bueckers tallied 21 points, KK Arnold added 13 and Nika Muhl supplied 12 for UConn (18-4, 10-0 Big East), which bounced back after having its 13-game winning streak snapped by then-No. 15 Notre Dame on Saturday.

Lucy Olsen netted 15 points to lead Villanova (13-8, 6-4), which was outscored 44-24 in the second half en route to its third loss in the past four games.

No. 22 Creighton 76, Marquette 71

Morgan Maly notched 21 points as the Bluejays pushed past the Golden Eagles in Omaha, Neb.

Lauren Jensen chipped in 19 points to complement Molly Mogensen’s 11 as Creighton (17-3, 8-2 Big East) stacked up its seventh straight win. The Bluejays shot 26 of 53 (49.1 percent) from the field and held on despite going the game’s final 5:34 without a field goal.

Liza Karlen scored 29 points and Mackenzie Hare hit for 17 to lead Marquette (16-5, 5-5), which has now lost three of its past four games.
