Fletcher Magee became a March Madness hero on Thursday night, hitting seven three-pointers to help the Wofford Terriers knock out Seton Hall, 84-68, in the opening round of the NCAA tournament. Casual fans just tuning for March may have been startled by Magee’s incredible long-range shooting ability, but nothing about his performance was out of the ordinary. Magee has been doing this for four years.
Magee broke the DI record for three-point makes in a career during this game, a mark that now stands at 509 and counting. With a game against Kentucky on Saturday and a Sweet 16 bid on the line, Magee has another chance to pad his stats and further enhance his legend.
He is the driving force behind a Wofford team that has been laying waste to opponents all season. The Terriers earned a No. 7 seed in this tournament by going undefeated in the Southern Conference and winning the conference tournament. Their resume was unassailable by any standard, entering the tournament at No. 21 overall on KenPom, No. 14 in the NET rankings, and at No. 19 in the final AP Poll.
Get on the Fletcher Magee bandwagon now while there’s still time. This is how he became the three-point king of college basketball.
