JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -- Florida Gulf Coast sank 22 shots from 3-point range Saturday to break its own single-game Division I women's record in a 97-60 victory over East Tennessee State.
Betsy Adams, who finished with 25 points, made 7 in 12 attempts, but she got plenty of help from her teammates as the Eagles (12-5, 5-0 Atlantic Sun Conference) took 43 long-range attempts, making 51.2 percent.
East Tennessee State (3-8, 1-3) was 2 of 3 behind the arc.
Florida Gulf Coast made 21 3-pointers in 51 attempts last season in a 106-27 victory over Webber International on Nov. 28, 2011. That tied the record set by New Mexico State in 49 attempts during a 94-62 win over Louisiana-Lafayette on Feb. 23, 2002.
The men's Division I record is 28 -- in 74 attempts -- set by Troy on Dec. 10, 1994.
Florida Gulf Coast was averaging 8 3-pointers in 27.8 attempts this season.
