Iowa City, Iowa Caitlin Clark, a former point guard for Iowa, keeps winning national honors. For the second year in a row, Clark was named the Wooden Award National Player of the Year on Tuesday.

After South Carolina defeated Caitlin Clark, head coach Dawn Staley said, “I want to personally thank Caitlin Clark for lifting up our sport.” “She carried a heavy load for our sport, and it just isn’t gonna stop here on the collegiate tour, but when she’s the number one pick in the WNBA draft she’s going to lift that league up as well.”

For the second consecutive year, Caitlin Clark, an all-American from the University of Iowa, was selected the Wooden Award National Player of the Year. This award is given to the best women’s basketball player who has exceptional on-court performance each year. The Los Angeles Athletic Club made the news on Tuesday.

JuJu Watkins (USC), Paige Bueckers (UConn), Hannah Hidalgo (Northern Dame), and Cameron Brink (Stanford) are the other finalist for the prestigious honor alongside Clark. The 48th Annual Wooden Award presentation in Los Angeles is extended an invitation to all five players.

On Friday, April 12, in Los Angeles, the Wooden Award All-America teams will be presented together with a celebration of the Men’s and Women’s Wooden Award winners. The universities that certified the honorees met or beyond the Wooden Award requirements.

The most dominant player in women’s college basketball recently led the Hawkeyes to their second straight National Championship and finished the season leading the nation in assists (8.9 assists per game) and in scoring (31.6 points per game). She became the first player to finish No. 1 in both categories in back-to-back seasons. Clark owns a career 3,900+ points and she recently became the first Division-I player to record 1,000+ points in back-to-back seasons. She is also the only player in NCAA DI men’s or women’s basketball history to lead her conference in scoring and assists in four consecutive seasons

Clark is the first time that an Iowa women’s basketball player has won the Wooden Award. The West Des Moines, Iowa, native helped lead the Hawkeyes to their second National Championship appearance in school history in her final season.
