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.
Twenty years after winning gold in Atlanta, members of the 1996 U.S. Olympic team reunited and walked down memory lane while being honored by the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame.
At Saturday's Women's Basketball Hall of Fame induction, this year's class -- including Natalie Williams and Jackie Stiles -- spoke about the ties that bind everyone in the women's hoops world.
Disappointed by being left off the U.S. Olympic volleyball team? Just reach the Olympics in another sport. Natalie Williams, one of six Hall of Fame inductees, was that athletically gifted.
