Fletcher Magee now stands alone in the record books.

On Thursday, the Wofford guard and two-time reigning Southern Player of the Year set the record for most career three-pointers in NCAA history.

The senior guard came into Wofford’s matchup against Seton Hall with 502 career threes to his name, just two shy of tying former Oakland guard Travis Bader for the all-time record.

In the first half, Magee knocked down a pair of triples to pull even at 504 made threes.

He finished the half with nine points and his Terriers held a 40–30 advantage.

In the second half, Magee finally made history with his third three of the game and the 505th of his record-breaking career.

For the season, Magee now has 154 threes, which is a career high. It’s the fourth most in a single season, eight behind the record set by Stephen Curry during his sophomore year at Davidson from 2007–08. Like Magee, Curry was also a two-time Southern Player of the Year.
