Caitlin Clark shoots past Pete Maravich on an epic day in Iowa City

IOWA CITY - Too much to describe happened in this ardent college town Sunday, so you're better off not even trying to describe it.

Start trying, and soon you're pulled like mutant taffy toward this sight or that and that sound or this from a crammed senior day at Iowa, the day Caitlin Clark passed "Pistol" Pete Maravich to top all major college point-gatherers. You're into the telling details, such as the fact that Clark has grown so famous that pregame the emcee held an on-court interview with two of her cousins, leaving you to wonder whether they're first cousins or distant cousins once removed or people speciously claiming to be cousins.

Clark came with her teammates through the tunnel to the court and a frenzied swell of noise around 10 a.m., two hours before tip-off, with a "College GameDay" crowd filling about half of Carver-Hawkeye Arena. She could grin while hearing ESPN's Rebecca Lobo describe her as "a singular ticket-selling force" as the big screens displayed a little ticket with a price reading $433 for this coveted occasion.
