Now a senior at Oakland University, guard Travis Bader has been one of college basketball’s most prolific perimeter shooters during his career. On Sunday Bader completed his climb to the top of the NCAA’s list for made three-pointers in a career, surpassing former Duke great J.J. Redick.

Bader’s third three-pointer of the first half in the Golden Grizzlies’ 86-64 loss at Milwaukee, a shot from the right corner with 6:18 remaining in the first half, was the 458th of his college career. Redick made 457 three-pointers in four seasons at Duke.

Bader finished the game with six made three-pointers and 21 points, moving his total to 461 made three-pointers. Although the game was on the road, Bader’s achievement was acknowledged by the folks at Milwaukee during a break in the action.

    Oakland has seven more conference games. And one, maybe two in their conference tournament. So, Bader has maybe nine games to get 39 more and set the new record at the magic mark of 500. Four and a half per game will do it. He got six in this game, so it looks possible.

    Congrats Travis. Oakland U. is proud of you.

    It’s highly unlikely that I could stand in an empty gym for four years and make 461 three pointers. Just sayin’…
