Caitlin Clark heads into the offseason with all of the major national player of the year awards.
The Iowa junior guard was named the winner of the Wooden Award from the Los Angeles Athletic Club on Tuesday.
It was an awards sweep for Clark, who also won the Naismith Trophy, the Wade Trophy, the Associated Press national player of the year, and the USBWA’s Ann Meyers Drysdale Award. Clark also won the national player of the year award from The Athletic, along with winning the Big Ten’s player of the year award. She was a first-team All-American by the Associated Press and the USBWA.
It is the first time an Iowa player has won the Wooden Award.
Clark led the Hawkeyes to their first appearance in the NCAA national championship game. She finished the season averaging 27.8 points per game, 8.6 assists per game, and 7.1 rebounds per game. Clark had 1,055 points and 327 assists, both of which broke Big Ten and school single season records.
Clark will receive her award on Friday.
