No Michigan basketball player – man or woman – has scored more points in a Wolverines uniform than senior guard Katelynn Flaherty, who broke former Michigan star Glen Rice's career scoring record of 2,442 points on Saturday against Nebraska.
Flaherty entered the game with 2,431 points, just 11 shy of Rice, and she broke the record in the second quarter.
Flaherty's record-breaking shot was, fittingly, a 3-pointer. She is the Wolverines' all-time leader in 3-pointers made, entering Saturday with 344 in her career. The senior from Point Pleasant, N.J., also holds single-season program records for points, field goals made and field goals attempted. Flaherty scored a season-high 33 points on a program-record 10 3-pointers against Penn State on Dec. 28.
