NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Ohio women's basketball team's single-game shooting record has fallen.

Vanderbilt found out today they set a new Division I NCAA record for highest field-goal percentage in a single game with at least 24 shots made. The 15th-ranked Commodores went 32-for-42 -- or 76 percent -- in a victory yesterday over Alabama.

That bests the previous record of 75 percent by the Bobcats. Ohio shot 33-for-44 on December 18th, 2001, against Tennesee-Martin.

The NCAA divides single-game shooting records into three categories: at least 18 shots made, 24 shots made and 36.
