Senior is career 41 percent 3-point shooter
SEATTLE -- Kansas State senior Laurie Koehn broke the NCAA career record for 3-pointers Monday night against Vanderbilt in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
Koehn made her third 3-pointer of the game and 392nd of career with 1:23 left to pull Kansas State to 59-56 in the Wildcats' 63-60 loss. Erin Thorn of BYU made 391 from 1999 to 2003.
Koehn made her first 3-pointer with 11:07 left in the first half and tied the record at the 6:23 mark. She had a season-high six 3s in the Wildcats' 70-60 first-round victory over Bowling Green.
A career 41 percent 3-point shooter, Koehn made at least 72 in each of her four seasons at Kansas State. Her high came as a freshman, when she made 122. She was a second-team all-Big 12 Conference selection this season.
