A three-point field goal (also known as a "three-pointer" or "3-pointer") is a field goal in a basketball game, made from beyond the three-point line, a designated arc radiating from the basket. A successful attempt is worth three points, in contrast to the two points awarded for shots made inside the three-point line. The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) keeps records of the Division I 3-point field made in a game leaders. The statistic was first recognized in the 1986–87 season when 3-point field goals were officially instituted by the NCAA. From the 1986–87 season through the 2007–08 season, the three-point perimeter was marked at 19 ft 9 in (6.02 m) for both men's and women's college basketball.[1] On May 3, 2007, the NCAA men's basketball rules committee passed a measure to extend the distance of the men's three-point line back to 20 ft 9 in (6.32 m), while the women's line would remain the same.[1]

Through January 6, 2017, only 17 players have made at least 12 three-point field goals in a single game.[2][3] The all-time record is 15, which has only occurred one time and it was by Marshall's Keith Veney.[4] On December 14, 1996, he set the record against Morehead State.[2] Only three other players have made 14 three-pointers: Ronald Blackshear, Dave Jamerson and Askia Jones.[2] The most recent player to make 12 threes in a game is Darius Dawkins of Jacksonville, who made 13 three-pointers against Middle Georgia State on January 3, 2017.[5]
