On Monday night at Liberty Arena against Carver College, Liberty guard Darius McGhee became the program’s leader in career three pointers made. He broke Ryan Kemrite’s record of 258 made threes during his career. With his seven made triples against Carver, McGhee now has 260 career made threes.

“Congratulations,” Liberty head coach Ritchie McKay said of McGhee’s accomplishment following the game. “I think the only person that’s not happy right now is Ryan Kemrite. Actually, saw Ryan in Texas. He sent a great text, really proud of him. Proud of Darius too. It’s a really hard feat considering some of the great ones that have put on the Liberty jersey, Larry Blair, a host of others. Happy that he got a chance to break the record.”

McGhee finished Monday night’s game with a game high of 23 points on 8 of 12 shooting from the floor, including 7 of 11 from three-point range. The Flames cruised to a 95-36 victory to improve to 6-4 on the season.

The 5’9″ senior guard from Roxboro, North Carolina, entered his fourth season in the program third on the career list for made three pointers with 224. He was tied with Larry Jackson and just ahead of Anthony Smith’s 220 made threes. Larry Blair was in second place, as he made 227 triples during his career with the Flames.

McGhee has scored 1,240 career points. He moved into the top 20 of Liberty’s career scoring list with his 23 points on Monday, passing Greg McCauley and Jesse Sanders. McGhee is now just eight points behind Julius Nwosu for 19th place on the program’s career scoring list. At his current scoring pace of 18.8 points per game this season, McGhee could reach the top 10 of Liberty’s all-time scoring list by the end of the season.
