History was made on the college basketball court on Sunday as Oakland senior guard Travis Bader became the NCAA all-time leader in made three-pointers in an 86-64 loss to Milwaukee, passing former Duke Blue Devils star, J.J. Redick.
Bader’s history-making shot came in the first half of the loss on the road, his third made shot from beyond the arc of that half. For the game, Bader finished with 21 points, including a total of six successful three-point shots.
Throughout his career in Oakland, Bader has been one of the most prolific shooters in all of college basketball, and this accomplishment today just puts a stamp on that fact.
After today’s outing, Bader now has a career total of 461 made three-point attempts, and that number will only continue to climb as there’s still about a month left in the 2013-14 regular season.
With the one-and-done players ruling college basketball these days, it might be a very long time before you see any player even make an attempt at shattering this record.
