J.J. Redick NCAA 3-point mark in jeopardy

On Sunday in Milwaukee, an NCAA record held for eight years by Clippers guard J.J. Redick could fall.
Senior Travis Bader of Oakland University in Rochester, Mich., needs only three 3-pointers to surpass the record of 457 Redick set while at Duke.
Redick and the Clippers have already sent along a congratulatory video they made for Bader and Redick plans on calling the 6-foot-5 senior after he surpasses the record.
“I just found an article the other day about him so I learned a little bit about him, a skinny little kid coming into college and he works his butt off, that he’s a good representation of his school,” Redick said. “I heard something this summer, someone said something about it to me, so I knew it was going to be broken this year.”
Redick, who recalled the mental and emotional strain his own chase for the record put on him, has resisted reaching out to Bader so far.
“I thought about texting him the other day, telling him to stop being such a head case,” Redick said, smiling. “I’ll just wait ’til he breaks it.”
