As if anyone needed more proof that Iowa's Caitlin Clark is one of the nation's best players, the Hawkeye star and Division I leading scorer put up an all-time great performance on the biggest stage.

With Iowa needing a win Sunday in the season finale against Michigan to clinch the Big Ten regular-season title, Clark tallied 38 points, 11 assists and six rebounds, with just two turnovers in a 104-80 Iowa victory. Oh, and she shot 8-for-11 from 3-point range, despite a high degree of difficulty on many of those attempts.

Her performance, once again, got fans on Twitter buzzing, but it also caught the attention of two NBA all-stars. 

Los Angeles Lakers small forward LeBron James and Memphis Grizzlies shooting guard Ja Morant were among those in awe of what Clark was able to do on the court Sunday. 

LeBron took to Instagram to praise the Hawkeyes sophomore's talent.

"She got so much game!" James said in his Instagram story.
