WATCH: Steph Curry congratulates Taylor Robertson on setting NCAA all-time mark
On Saturday in Ames, Taylor Robertson became the NCAA’s all-time leader in three-pointers made. It was a momentous occasion for the fifth-year senior who now has 502 in her career.
Over the course of her career, she’s made three-pointers at a 44% clip. It’s a record that even impressed Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry, arguably the greatest three-point shooter of all-time, and Robertson’s idol.
“Hey, what’s up, Taylor just wanted to say congratulations on breaking the all-time NCAA Women’s Division One Three point record of 498 threes,” Curry shared via video. “Now, I know you’re gonna keep adding to that number and probably make it hopefully something that will never be broken. But to go from making eight threes in your first college game against Western Kentucky to now 498, that is an amazing, amazing accomplishment.
“I only made 414 threes in college, so you’ve been had me beat. But this is an amazing accomplishment for you. And not only doing 498 but shooting 44% in your career while accomplishing that level of volume, that is unbelievable.
“And I just want to say congratulations be proud of yourself. I know you and your team are primed for an amazing tournament run, so finish the season strong but congratulations on this record. You earned it.”

Robertson will indeed add to her record. She averaged 111.25 made threes in the first four years of her Oklahoma Sooners career, including the COVID-shortened 2020-2021 season. This year, she’s already at 57 made threes through 20 games.
Robertson’s teammates then revealed that she’s been invited to meet Steph Curry at a game as well.
It’s an incredible feat for the sharp-shooter who has played a key role in setting up the Sooners’ offense this season.
