The University of Iowa's Caitlin Clark is gearing up to break the former Washington Husky star, Kelsey Plum's scoring record on Thursday (February 15).

Which basketball players inspired her? Who made her want to pick up a basketball and practice every day? Not surprisingly, there were a few players on a WNBA team, that's pretty close to Iowa, that she was drawn to.

Minnesota Lynx

For those who don't keep up with the WNBA, the Minnesota Lynx have won the WNBA championship 4 times. They were crowned champions in 2011, 2013, 2015, and 2017. Caitlin Clark was born in 2002, according to Biography Athletes. She would've been in her young teens and mid-teens when the Minnesota Lynx were on a roll.

When Caitlin would throw on a jersey and go practice in the driveway or gymnasium, these were the ladies she wanted to be like.

Caitlin has come full circle during her time spent at the University of Iowa. Girls and boys around the country want her jersey, want a picture, want an autograph, and hope to one day play like her when they grow up.

She becomes the greatest scorer in women's college basketball tomorrow and she might not stop there. This hasn't been talked about as much but not only will Caitlin become the greatest scorer in women's college basketball, she has a very real chance of breaking the all-time scoring record in college basketball, men or women.

Pete Marovich currently holds the record with 3,667 points. Caitlin currently sits at 3,520. Pete's record is very much in reach for this Iowa basketball star.
