NORMAN, Okla. — University of Oklahoma basketball guard Taylor Robertson broke the Division I women’s record for three-pointers in a game against the Iowa State Cyclones Saturday.
Robertson’s 498th three-pointer, beat out a record set from 2014 to 2018 by Ohio State Buckeyes player Kelsey Mitchell. Robertson, is a fifth-year senior for the Sooners, taking advantage of the extra season offered by the COVID-19 waiver from 2020-2021. However, she reached the record in one fewer game than Mitchell.
Sunday Oklahoma Basketball tweeted out a video, where she got a surprise congratulations message from Golden State point guard Steph Curry.
