By now, you should be more than familiar with our series of regularly updating leaderboards for various Marquette Golden Eagles sports accomplishments. Keep checking back to that link in the previous sentence for our charts as the seasons continue to churn through history and MU’s various teams continue to create new memories and accomplishments.
We’re here to talk about Marquette’s all-time three-pointers made chart for women’s basketball. Last year, we were largely focused on Isabelle Spingola’s charge up the chart. She ultimately landed at #5 all time, and considering the fact that she had only 50 made threes after her first two seasons, ending up with 173 in her career and more than all but just four MU players is pretty damn great.
That was last year, though, and this is this year. This time around we’ll be watching Selena Lott during what will be her final season of college basketball. The New York native currently has 100 career made three-pointers after knocking in a career best 44 in 2019-20. She’s 19 back of Heidi Bowman in 14th place (and the last tracked spot on our list) all-time at — duh — 119.
As is always the question, we have to wonder how many games Lott will get to move up the chart. 44 makes in 30 games a year ago is a little under 1.5 per game, and for her career, Lott is only averaging barely over one made triple per game. Since Marquette has not announced any non-conference games at all as I write this on November 15th, all we know is that the Big East is going to try and play a full 20 game schedule this season. That’s somewhere between 20 and 30 makes on the year for Lott depending on what rate you want to consider her at for the year. 30 makes would only be enough to get her to 12th most all-time. 40 would get Lott past Courtney Weibel and into 11th place.
Still, even with a shortened schedule thanks to the coronavirus, it’s not wildly impossible to think that Lott could net 60 and go out on a high note. That would send her shooting past McKayla Yentz and into the program’s all-time top 10. That’s pretty good stuff...... if it happens.
Here’s the all-time chart at the end of the 2020-21 season.
