The UConn women's basketball team extended its record to 14-1 on Sunday with a win over South Florida, but the bigger excitement from the game came from the milestone shot hit by senior Katie Lou Samuelson that brought the Huskies star to 2,001 career points. Samuelson, a member of UConn's 2016 national championship team, entered the game with 1,987 career points, but broke the 2,000 mark with two minutes left in the third quarter. She went on to score a total of 19 points in the game, bringing her career total to 2,006.
With her shot, she became the 10th player in UConn history to achieve such a feat, joining the likes of WNBA greats including Maya Moore, Breanna Stewart and Tina Charles.
Here is a list of all 10 UConn players, including Samuelson, who have scored 2,000 career points:
