Taylor Robertson became Oklahoma’s all-time leader in made 3-pointers during the Sooners’ 83-76, come-from-behind win over Utah on Tuesday night.
While Robertson made history, the Sooners (10-1) roared back from a 19-point deficit to beat the Utes and give the voters in the AP Top 25 something to think about next week. The Sooners are receiving votes and are just outside the Top 25.
Robertson scored 19 points and made four 3-pointers in the game, with the record-breaker coming with 7:57 left in the fourth quarter, which tied the game. With the shot, she made her 377th career 3-pointer and passed Aaryn Ellenberg for the most in school history.
Robertson’s current total is No. 19 in NCAA history. Her 3.97 made 3-pointers per game and 44.6 career percentage from behind the arc are best among active NCAA players.
Robertson, potentially, has more records to break. She is now 15 3-pointers away from tying Laurie Koehn’s Big 12 record of 392. She is 120 behind Kelsey Mitchell’s NCAA record. That may seem unreachable this season, but remember that Robertson, a fourth-year player, can opt to return to school next season, as she has a COVID year of eligibility at her disposal.
Meanwhile, Oklahoma is on a tear under first-year head coach Michelle Baranczyk. The Sooners are off to their best start since the 2006-07 season under Sherri Coale. That team started 17-1 and eventually reached the NCAA Tournament’s Sweet 16.
Baranczyk is trying to get the Sooners back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2018.
