Another Caitlin Clark game, and another sellout. Sound familiar?

The reigning national player of the year and Iowa’s star guard, Clark will play tonight at Northwestern in Chicago, where despite the Wildcats’ 7-13 record, a sellout crowd of 7,039 is expected.

Clark, who averages a nation-best 32.0 points per game, is poised tonight to pass two women’s basketball greats in her chase to break the NCAA women’s scoring record: Clark currently has 3,389 points, and needs only five points to pass former Missouri State All – American Jackie Stiles (3,393 points) and 14 points to pass former Ohio State star Kelsey Mitchell (3,402). Provided she does that, she will move into No. 2 all-time. The record, set by former Washington All-American Kelsey Plum (3,527 points) in February 2017, is within reach.

Clark has a habit of selling out arenas wherever she plays. Iowa announced in August, months before the season started, that they’d sold out for every game and over the last few weeks, each of the Hawkeyes’ road games has sold out, too. Fans are paying hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars to watch Clark in person. When Ohio State upset Iowa a couple of weeks ago, many in the record crowd of 18,660 rushed the floor to celebrate the Buckeyes’ win.

Regardless of tonight’s outcome, expect to see lots of Caitlin Clark jerseys in the stands.

USA TODAY Sports will bring you the latest updates, scores, highlights, wild plays, analysis and more throughout the game. Follow along.

The women’s college basketball game between the No. 4 Iowa Hawkeyes and Northwestern Wildcats is scheduled to begin at 8 pm in Evanston, Illinois. It will be broadcast on Peacock.

Caitlin Clark has 3,389 career points (and counting!) after scoring 38 in Iowa’s 92-73 win against Nebraska on Saturday.

By now you’ve probably heard that Iowa All-American Caitlin Clark, the reigning national player of the year, has a tendency to sell out any arena she plays in. But for a closer look at Clarkonomics — as ESPN analyst Debbie Antonelli has termed it — USA TODAY reporter Jim Sergent worked up a graphic look at just how much Iowa fans will spend and how far they’ll travel to see Clark in person. The numbers are telling, to say the least.

Yes, Clark is a senior … but she could come back next year and be a super senior if she wants.

Although she’s projected to be the No. 1 pick in the 2024 WNBA draft, she could return to Iowa City next season. Because Clark was a freshman in the 2020-21 season, she has a COVID year (basically, that season didn’t count toward anyone’s eligibility).

Clark, a senior, is 6-foot. Big guards have become more common in women’s basketball the last decade or so, and Clark’s size absolutely helps her because she’s able to see over defenders on the break and helps her get vertical separation when she goes up for a shot.

Also of note: Clark, who’s pretty thin, worked hard last summer to put on eight pounds of muscle and that has made a huge difference in her game, particularly when she drives to the rim.

Clark’s highest-scoring game came when she hung 45 points on Ohio State on Jan. 21. Clark shot 12-for-25 that game, including 7-for-18 from 3. She also grabbed three rebounds and handed out seven assists in the 100-92 loss.

Here’s a breakdown of Clark’s scoring this season for the Hawkeyes:
