Glenville State Dials Up Long Range Single-Game NCAA Hoops Records

Glenville State’s fast-paced attack will cause multiple edits in the NCAA Women’s Basketball Record Book following the Lady Pioneers’ 133-72 victory at Bluefield State on Wednesday evening.

GSC established NCAA all-division records with 29 made three-pointers and 62 attempted three-point field goals.  The previous records had stood since 1992 when Clarion sank 26 of 52 trifecta attempts in a rout of Ashland (OH).  Fairmont State owned the previous WVIAC single-game mark after connecting on 22 long range field goals in a 2005 thumping of Columbia Union.

The Lady Pioneers’ 80 first half points are the second most points in a half during NCAA women’s basketball history.  West Texas A&M plastered National Christian for 85 points on November 29, 2001 for the Division II and all-divisions record.  Long Beach State also posted 80 points in a half during a victory against San Jose State in 1987.

Believe it or not, the 133 points are not the most points scored by a Bunky Harkleroad coached squad.  His Berea College squad piled up an NAIA Division II-record 141 points versus Knoxville College on November 17, 2005.

Eight different players made at least one three-pointer for the Lady Pioneers on Wednesday evening.  Donita Adams and Autumn Davis made seven each to lead the record long-range assault.  Ginny Petties dished out a dozen assists, while Miranda Reed had 11.

Glenville State is off to 5-2 start during Harkleroad’s first season at the helm.  GSC leads the WVIAC in scoring (93.4 ppg) and made three-point field goals (13.4/g).  The Lady Pioneers have launched at least 32 trifectas in each contest thus far and have gone over the 100-point barrier in four contests, including all three league games.
