Eighth-grader Jaden Newman makes 17 3-pointers in a 70-point game to tie national record
When you think 3-point shooting prowess, you probably think of Stephen Curry or Klay Thompson or Jayson Tatum. Time to add Jaden Newman to the list. The 13-year-old basketball prodigy and star guard at Downey Christian (Orlando, Florida) made 17 of her 24 attempts from beyond the arc on Tuesday to tie a national high school record.
According to the National Federation of State High School Associations, Newman is tied with Duke senior Rebecca Greenwell for the most 3-pointers in a single game. Greenwell also hit 17 in 2013 while playing for Kentucky’s Owensboro Catholic.
Newman, who is averaging 45.7 points per game this season and hopes to play at UConn, was happy about her performance, but thinks she can do even better.
I want us to keep winning, and I really want to break the record with 18 3s, Newman said. Maybe next week in our next game.
Doyle’s jumper with 2:53 to play capped a 9-0 run and gave Iowa its last lead, 67-66. Bell followed with two free throws. Doyle’s 3 with 19 seconds left made it a one-point game but Bell and Wagner secured the win from the line in the last nine seconds.
Iowa finished 2 of 14 from 3-point range and is now 5 of 47 during the losing streak.
Vrabel noted the fear in which his Texans defense approached a dual-threat like Mariota last season, noting one big touchdown run the Titans quarterback pulled off.
We were scared to death, the new Titans coach said. He pulled a football on Jadeveon Clowney and ran 40 yards. Thank god he pulled his hamstring running 40 yards. That game wouldn’t have been what it was that day in Houston. He’s a special talent, a special kid, and I can’t wait to work with him and help him through taking that next step in his career. But you get a quarterback that pulls it on J.D., you better have some cojones because J.D. normally swallows those guys up.
