He finished that game — and as it turned out, his college career — with 509 3-pointers.
Siena’s Marc Brown in 1989 and Seton Hall’s Isaiah Whitehead in 2016 shared the previous record for futility from 3 at 0-for-10.

Magee’s previous career worst game without a 3 came earlier this season in an 0-for-9 showing at Kansas on Dec. 4, a game Wofford lost 72-47, its lowest point total of the season.
