SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- With seven made three-point field goals in today's Sacramento State women's basketball game, senior guard Maranne Johnson became the Big Sky Conference's all-time leading three-point scorer, passing the previous mark of 254 career threes. 

Johnson went 7-for-13 from beyond the three-point line this afternoon against Portland, giving her 257 career three-pointers, a new Big Sky Conference record. She passed the previous record of 254, set by Montana State's Katie Bussey (2008-12). Among active players, Weber State's Kailie Quinn is closest to Johnson with 222 career threes.

On Friday, Dec. 15, Johnson passed former Hornets star Alle Moreno (2010-14) to become the all-time leader in Sacramento State women's basketball program history. Moreno is now second in the program and tied for third in Big Sky Conference history with 238 career three-pointers. 

In addition to the career record, Johnson owns the Sacramento State single-season record for three-pointers with 93 made during the 2016-17 season.
