Men's college basketball: Bader breaks 3-point record
Oakland’s Travis Bader set the NCAA Division I record for the most career 3-pointers on Sunday against UW-Milwaukee, surpassing the previous mark of 457 set by Duke’s J.J. Redick.
Bader, who entered the game two behind Redick, missed his first 3-point attempt but made his next four. He broke the record with a shot from the right corner with 6:17 left in the first half, pulling Oakland within 29-28.
“I was in rhythm, caught it and shot it in the corner. It went in,” Bader said. “I practice those shots all the time. It’s just constant repetition and confidence that I’m going to make every shot.”
Bader, a 6-foot-5 senior guard, tied the record with a 3-pointer from the right wing with 6:58 left.
Bader made 5 of 7 3-pointers in the first half. He was 1 for 4 beyond the arc in the second, pushing his career total to 461. Milwaukee won, 86-64.
