Move Over Larry Finch

Posted By on Sat, Nov 28, 2009 at 9:13 AM

Brittany Carter established a new single-game scoring record Friday night in the women's 98-83 win over Sacramento State in Seattle. But the sophomore forward's new mark — 49 points — actually represents a U of M standard for women's or men's basketball. The men's record remains the 48 points Larry Finch scored against St. Joseph's on January 20, 1973. (Among women, Tamika Whitmore held the record of 45 points since 1999.)
