Indiana Fever star Caitlin Clark, who usually makes news for her impressive feats and highlights, made history on Wednesday. In the Fever’s 89-84 loss to the Washington Mystics, the rookie made five mistakes, which established a new record for the most turnovers in a rookie season in WNBA history (127). Nikki McCray, the late Mystics star, established the record in 1998 with 126, but Clark beat her.

On the list of WNBA players with the highest single-season turnover, Clark also shot up to fourth place, behind only Alyssa Thomas (137), Ticha Penicheiro (135), and Angel McCoughtry (134). Before the All-Star break, she is now on pace to surpass Thomas’s record. Positively speaking, Clark did uncover one interesting historical discovery against the Mystics. On Wednesday, the front-runner for Rookie of the Year scored 29 points, dished out 13 assists, pulled down five rebounds, stole five steals, and blocked five shots. No player in an NBA or WNBA game has accomplished those feats since the 1973–74 campaign.
