Kelsey Plum is a very prolific scorer and today she broke a record that has been in place for years. With 4:05 left in Washington’s game against Utah, Plum hit a left hand floater to pass Jackie Stiles’ record of 3,393 points as the NCAA’s All-Time scorer.

Watch her basket that made history:

On the night, Plum finished with yet another record: the most points scored in Washington history in a single game with 57. By the end of the night, she had moved her career total points up to 3,397. Plum will build on that number as the Huskies set their eyes on yet another deep post season run.

Congratulations poured in for Plum, including tweets from local professional teams in the Seattle Storm, Seattle Mariners, and the Seattle Seahawks.
