La Verne women hit from long distance

The University of La Verne women’s team set an NCAA Division III record for 3-pointers with 26 in a 113-61 rout of Pomona-Pitzer on Saturday.

The previous mark of 24 came earlier this season by Sewanee against Judson (Ala.) on Nov. 19. The 113 points also was the most in a game in school history.

The Leopards went 26 for 63 (41.3%) beyond the arc, easily eclipsed their month-old mark of 18 set against the Sagehens in Claremont on Jan. 21. Sophomore guard Kelly Kika also set a single-game school record for treys with 9 to break the old mark of Lindsey Shiomi, who totaled 8 against Pomona-Pitzer in 2007. Kika finished with 32 points.

A total of 10 different Leopards made at least one three-pointer, led by Kika’s nine. Freshman Brittni Tapia totaled four triples. Raphaelle Buenafe, Megan Musashi, Amanda McGinnis, Riki Murakami and Chantal Crouzet had two each with Amanda Copas, Michelle Webb and Mia Roseboro each adding one.

There were just two players on the roster that didn;’t figure into that total.

Unfortnately the success hitting from long distance hasn’t translated into wins as the Leopards are just 6-17 overall and 4-8 in SCIAC play.
