Wood Sets NC State Career Record For 3-Pointers In Win Over UVA
March 15, 2013
Greensboro, N.C. - Entering Friday's ACC Tournament quarterfinal game versus Virginia, senior Scott Woodneeded three 3-pointers to tie Rodney Monroe (1988-91) for the program record. Wood not only tied Monroe's 322 career 3-pointers, he passed Monroe in the record books in big fashion, knocking down seven treys to establish a new mark with 326. On the day, Wood scored a game-high 23 points to lead State to a 75-56 victory. Following the game, Wood was congratulated by none other than Mr. Fire himself, Rodney Monroe.
Wood's long-distance performance on Friday also sets an NC State ACC Tournament single-game record and ties for the fourth most 3-pointers made in an ACC Tournament game by a player from any league team. Wood also held the previous mark of six set against Florida State in 2010. Wood has shot an impressive .458 (27-59) from behind the arc in nine career games.
