Wofford’s Fletcher Magee sets unwanted record in loss to Kentucky

It was widely expected that Wofford’s success or failure against Kentucky would hinge on Fletcher Magee’s shooting. That was correct, but not in the way he would’ve wanted it to be.

Magee, who set the all-time NCAA Division I record for made three-pointers in the first round win over Seton Hall, went 0-for-12 from distance in the Terriers’ 62-56 loss to Kentucky. Not only was that the difference in the outcome, but it was a record for most three-point tries without converting in tournament history.

John Calipari’s team played an exemplary game defensively, and Magee was relegated to playing heroball late. He missed a few open looks, too. Unfortunately for the Terriers, even an average game from Magee may have been enough to get by Kentucky if all else was equal. They’ll feel that this one was there for the taking.
