Williams Sets Single Game Three-Point Record as Women’s Hoops Tops Drew

MADISON, N.J. (December 4, 2017) – Sophomore Kendrea Williams set a school-record with nine three-pointers as the FDU women’s basketball team overcame a slow first half to top Drew 86-64 Monday.

Williams broke the previous mark of seven, which she jointly held by with Leigh Ann Lively. The Piscataway, N.J. native hit the mark twice last season, while also knocking down seven in the win over Cortland back on November 18.

The Devils and Rangers both are now 3-3 after the contest tonight.

After trading three’s to open the game, the teams played each tight to the hip, as neither side was able to jump ahead by more than six. A jumper by junior Kayla Croswell put FDU up four, but Drew tallied a pair from the charity stripe to cut the gap to two heading into the second quarter.

The Rangers began the second with a 6-0 spurt, and a jumper with 3:23 left gave the hosts their biggest lead at six points. Sophomore Gabrielle Harris scored five straight for the Devils and Williams hit a pair of free throws, but a layup with 39 seconds left gave Drew a one point edge entering the halftime break.

Drew led at the half thanks to 13-of-25 shooting (52%) while each side pulled down 16 rebounds.

FDU surrendered the first four tallies of the second half, but Williams converted treys on back-to-back possessions to give the Devils a lead. The consecutive three-pointers kick-started an 11-0 run, before Drew responded with seven straight of their own.

Kendrea Williams Career High 38 Points Leads Women’s Hoops Past Cortland

Kendrea Williams

ITHACA, N.Y. (November 18, 2017) – Sophomore Kendrea Williams scored a career-best 38 points to lead the FDU women’s basketball team to an 80-75 win over Cortland Saturday.

The Devils improve to 2-1 on the season, as the Red Dragons drop to 0-2.

Williams 38 points were four points off the school-record, set by Simone Edwards during the 1992-93 season. The sophomore also went 7-of-20 from behind the arc; the seven three’s tied the school mark held by Williams and Leigh Ann-Lively, while the 20 attempts broke her own mark of 16 set last season.

FDU got off to a slow start for the second straight game, surrendering 17 of the first 20 points. The Devils nibbled away at the lead, scoring six straight to get within six. A Williams trey with 39 seconds left in the first quarter brought the deficit to three at 20-17.

The Red Dragons clung onto the lead for all of the second quarter, and shot 47.1% in the opening half. The Devils ball-possession was much more controlled today, committing just seven turnovers in the first half while forcing 16.
