CMU senior guard Niki DiGuilio met a challenge given to her by head coach Sue Guavara to complete 50,000 threes over last summer. DiGuilio's hard work and effort have paid dividends as she has become a star on the Chippewas' team this year.
DiGuilio is currently averaging 3.6 three point field goals per game, which puts her fifth in the country in that category. The 2010-2011 MAC Freshman of the Year has been a team leader on and off the court. DiGuilio has a very impressive 3.63 GPA majoring in the academically demanding Biomedical Science program.
Currently, Shonda Long is the CMU program leader with 230 three point field goals. DiGuilio is next with 228. She made four three point field goals in CMU's game against Purdue on Saturday. If DiGuilio keeps pace, the all-time CMU program record for three point field goals will be shattered tonight at UD Arena in Dayton, where the Chips hope for a repeat of their outstanding performance on December 5, 2013 at McGuirk Arena in Mt. Pleasant. A last second three pointer by Crystal Bradford resulted in a thrilling 94-91 come from behind victory for the Chippewas.
Tipoff is at 7:00 pm EST.
