Iowa star Caitlin Clark is just eight points away from breaking the NCAA women's basketball all-time scoring record — and the Hawkeyes play Michigan tomorrow.

Driving the news: Clark, who is averaging more than 32 points per game this season, should have no problem topping former Washington star Kelsey Plum's 3,527 career points at home against Michigan (16-9).

Zoom in: The Wolverines have struggled in Big Ten play this season (7-6) and are projected to be one of the last teams to make the NCAA Tournament, per ESPN.

  • A win against Iowa on what should be Clark's big night would go a long way toward playing in March Madness.

How to watch: The 8pm game against No. 4 Iowa is on Peacock.
