Huskies tripling their pleasure

It didn't generate much attention at the time but when Saniya Chong hit a 3-pointer with 3:08 left in the third quarter in a win over Tulsa, it was the 100th of her career.

Chong joined teammates Katie Lou Samuelson and Kia Nurse on the list of Huskies with 100 career 3-pointers which is the sixth time that has happened in program history. However, the program record with four players with 100 3-pointers (set in 2012-13) is set for this season.

2003-04: Maria Conlon, Ann Strother, Diana Taurasi
2011-12: Caroline Doty, Bria Hartley, Tiffany Hayes
2012-13: Caroline Doty, Kelly Faris, Bria Hartley, Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis
2014-15: Moriah Jefferson, Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis, Breanna Stewart
2015-16: Moriah Jefferson, Kia Nurse, Breanna Stewart
2016-17: Saniya Chong, Kia Nurse, Katie Lou Samuelson

Samuelson and Nurse rank 19th and 20th on UConn's career 3-point list with 140 and 138. Next up is Svetlana Abrosimova at 141 and Caroline Doty at 144.
