FORT WORTH, Texas -- TCU's Sandora Irvin broke the NCAA Division I women's career record for blocked shots Saturday night when she had eight in the Lady Frogs' 74-64 win over Memphis.

Irvin has 434 career blocked shots in 116 games, with seven regular-season games left. Genia Miller had 428 blocked shots in 118 games for Cal-State Fullerton from 1987-91.

The record for the 6-foot-3 senior came on the same day that Irvin's uncle, former Dallas Cowboys receiver Michael Irvin, was a finalist for the pro football Hall of Fame. But he didn't get enough votes for induction.

Irvin, TCU's career scoring and rebounding leader, finished with 25 points and 11 rebounds.

The all-divisions women's record for blocked shots is held by LaKisha Phifer, who had 533 in just 76 games for Division II St. Paul's from 1996-99. The Division I men's record is 535 by Louisiana-Monroe's Wojchiech Myrda from 1999 to 2002.

Irvin set the NCAA Division I single-game mark with 16 blocked shots against UAB on Jan. 16. She also had 20 points, 18 rebounds, six assists and five steals in that game, the first triple-double in school history.
