UConn women’s basketball player Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis needed four three-pointers on Monday night to tie the NCAA record of made three-pointers in a career. A fifth would give her the record held by Laurie Koehn of Kansas State and Heather Butler of Tennessee-Martin (392).
KML would end up with seven on the night. But each one she made ended up being important in the final outcome of the game.
The tying one put UConn up eight early in the second half after they had found themselves trailing to the Dayton Flyers at halftime. A few minutes later, her fifth, the record breaker, pushed UConn’s lead to 13.
