Wofford College’s Fletcher Magee Sets NCAA Career Three-Pointer Record
Magee now has 158 threes on the year.
A Wofford Terrier now stands alone in the NCAA record books.
Fletcher Magee, the Wofford guard and two-time reigning Southern Player of the Year, set the record for most career three-pointers in NCAA history on Thursday night.
The senior guard entered his team’s first round matchup against Seton Hall with 502 career threes to his name. Magee was just two shy of tying former Oakland guard Travis Bader for the all-time record but quickly tied him up in the first half.

He had nine total points by the end of the first 20 minutes with his team up 40-30, but history was made in just the first minute of the second half when Magee sunk his third three of the game and the 505th of his record-breaking career.
That shot also gave Magee his 154th on the year — a career high.
He hit another four throughout the rest of the second half, giving him 158 for the year to pull into a tie for the second-most in a single season, four behind the record set by Stephen Curry during his sophomore year at Davidson from 2007–08, according to Sports Illustrated.
