California Sharpshooter’s 14 1st-Half Treys Set National Record

By Cody Porter on January 28, 2016 blog Print

Draining 14 three-pointers in a game is a tall task for most teams. Even more impressive is to do it in one half.

What’s even more staggering is when one player connects for that many. In a January 19 game, Alessandra Aguirre of The Bishop School in San Diego did just that in a record-breaking game.

Her performance from behind the arc set a national record for most three-pointers in a half, pending state association approval, and broke the previous California Interscholastic Federation San Diego Section record of 11 in one game that was set in 2002.

When all was said and done, Aguirre had tallied 50 points and 15 three-pointers in Bishop’s win over La Jolla. Duke University’s Rebecca Greenwell set the all-time single game national record with 17 made three-pointers in 2013 as a senior at Kentucky’s Owensboro Catholic High School.

Update: Tucson (Arizona) Pueblo Magnet High School sophomore Alicia Reyes tied Greenwell's national record on January 27, draining 17 three-pointers in her team's 98-11 win over Cholla.
