Iowa star Caitlin Clark made it a clean sweep Tuesday after winning the Wooden Award for the nation’s most outstanding women’s college player of 2022-23.

It completes the player of the year awards for Clark, who also won the Naismith Trophy, Associated Press Player of the Year, Wade Trophy and USBWA national player of the year.

Clark beat out South Carolina and 2022 winner Aliyah Boston, Stanford forward Cameron Brink, Indiana’s Mackenzie Holmes and Villanova forward Maddy Siegrist.

Clark led the Hawkeyes to the NCAA Tournament title game, where they lost to LSU 102-85 on Sunday. Clark scored 30 points in the championship game and 191 points for the tournament, setting a record. Clark crushed the previous mark of 177 set by Sheryl Swoopes in 1993.
