In today’s 74-57 loss against the number one seeded team in the NEC, Robert Morris University, junior guard Jade Johnson set the single season record for most three-pointers made during a single season for the St. Francis women’s basketball program.
Johnson finished today’s game with 22 points (6-9 in three-pointers) and currently has 89 made three-pointers this season. The three-pointer was knocked down with 7:39 left in the second quarter, giving Jade the 86th three-pointer to break the single season record.
She also is ranked 7th in the nation in most three-pointers made this season (89), ranked 11th in the nation in three-point field goals per game (3.32), and ranked 13th in the nation in three-point field goal percentage (44.9%).
Despite taking the loss by the hands of Robert Morris University earlier today, Jade and the rest of the St. Francis women’s basketball team will now look to end their season off strong and hope to win their second NEC championship since 2015.
