Virginia Tech’s Georgia Amoore etched her name into college basketball’s history books during Friday evening’s Final Four game against LSU when she set the record for the most three-pointers ever made in a single NCAA tournament.
Amoore connected on her 23rd triple of the 2023 Big Dance during the third quarter of the contest against the Tigers, becoming the first men’s or women’s player ever to reach 23 or more made three-point field goals in a single tournament. The junior guard didn’t have to do much for the history-making shot as she calmly lined up a wide open jumper and cooly stared as the ball snapped through the net.

Amoore, who has shot 38.4% from beyond the arc on 9.3 three-point attempts per game this season, wasn’t done after securing her place in history. She drained another deep ball early in the fourth quarter to add to her record tally and extend the Hokies’ lead at the time.
Amoore may have notched her place in history, but it wasn’t enough for Virginia Tech to stay afloat against LSU. The Tigers used a 29-point outburst in the fourth quarter to close out a 79–72 win and claim the first spot in Sunday’s national championship game.
Amoore ended the game with 17 points on 4-for-15 shooting from beyond the arc.
