Khari Clark: Spearheading the 2024 women's college basketball season

Khari Clark, a rising star in the world of women's college basketball, is a name that has been making headlines throughout the 2023-24 season.

Her blend of agility, precision, and tenacity on the court has placed her on NCAA.com's starting five, an honor reserved for those who exhibit exceptional performances and contribute significantly to their college basketball teams.

With her steadily growing repertoire of high-impact games, Clark is undoubtedly carving out her legacy in the sport.

This article delves into her remarkable journey, shedding light on her accomplishments and the hallmark performances that have solidified her standing in the current season.


Khari Clark, Stony Brook

Playing for Stony Brook, Khari Clark has been instrumental in leading the Seawolves to a series of victories.

On Dec. 30 against Cornell, Clark scored 21 points and was key in securing the team’s fifth consecutive victory and 10th of the season.

This marked the second game where Clark scored over 20 points; it was also her ninth double-digit scoring game.

Not only did she seal the game with a shooting performance of 9-of-11 from the field, but she also secured her place as seventh nationally in field goal percentage with an impressive 66.7%.

This remarkable feat placed her first in the Coastal Athletic Association, reinforcing her status as a force to be reckoned with in NCAAB.

With an average of 15.5 points per game, tied for the team lead, and 6.6 rebounds, ranking second on the squad, Clark makes substantial contributions while averaging 25.5 minutes per game.


Aaliyah Edwards, UConn

Aaliyah Edwards, the senior forward at UConn, has consistently dominated the court with her compelling performances this season.

In recent weeks, she has been a driving force behind UConn's triumphs, with a winning streak of six games largely attributed to her spectacular play.

Edwards' performance on New Year's Eve was particularly noteworthy, as she led the Huskies to a decisive 95-64 victory over No. 18 Marquette by recording 19 points, 12 rebounds, and four assists.

This impressive performance was not an anomaly for Edwards - her December stats average 19.3 points, 10.0 rebounds, and 3.0 assists per game, with five double-doubles, further underlining her pivotal role in the team's successes.

Looking ahead, the No. 15 Huskies (10-3, 2-0 BIG EAST) are preparing for another confrontation against a ranked conference opponent, with Edwards expected to significantly influence the NCAAB live odds in the Huskies' favor.


Ta'Niya Latson, Florida State

Ta'Niya Latson, a sophomore guard for the Seminoles, has emerged as a dominant force in this season's Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) play.

Her electrifying performances have led the Seminoles to impressive victories over Georgia Tech and Wake Forest.

The Miami native shone brightly in both games, recording two stunning 30-point performances.

In the home win over Wake Forest, Latson demonstrated her scoring prowess, contributing 20 of her 30 points in the second half. Her flawless numbers include a 10-of-20 performance from the floor and a 9-of-9 from the free-throw line.

With already ten 30-point games under her belt in a relatively short collegiate career, Latson is leading Florida State with an average of 20.8 points per game.

As the Seminoles gear up to face No. 3 NC State on Jan. 4, all eyes will undoubtedly be on Latson, the rising star reshaping the landscape of women's college basketball.



As the 2024 women's college basketball season advances, rising stars like Khari Clark, Aaliyah Edwards, and Ta'Niya Latson continue to make their mark on the court.

Their exceptional performances have contributed to their team's successes and set the bar high for future sports players. Each of these athletes has demonstrated that dedication, tenacity, and skill can lead to extraordinary achievements in college basketball.
