Owensboro Catholic guard Becca Greenwell set a school record Monday night.
She also set a state record.
And while she was at it, she shattered a national record.
Greenwell drained 17 three-point shots in a 99-35 victory over Trinity - Whitesville.
The previous national record for treys in a single game was 15, shared by five players.
Greenwell finished the night with 51 points. She hit 17-of-28 shots, all taken from behind the arc. While she was at it, she found time to pull down nine rebounds and dish out four assists. She also had a couple of steals.
It might be worth mentioning that the 6-foot-1 Duke commit continues to recover from a knee injury.
"They played a 2-3 zone," Owensboro Catholic coach Ray Zuberer told MaxPreps.com. "She was a little bit leery of attacking the basket, so we set her on the perimeter. As they began to challenge her, she just kept moving farther and farther back."
The previous school record was 10 treys, held by Greenwell's sister Rachel. The state record was 13 made three-pointers by Claire Fuller of Felds Creek in 1990.
The Lady Aces' record currently stands at 11-5. Greenwell has been in and out of the lineup since suffering that knee injury. She missed her entire junior season after undergoing surgery for a torn ACL.
