USC’s Elijah Stewart sets school’s career 3-point record

Wednesday night became record rewriting night in Boulder.

After Colorado’s McKinley Wright IV broke Chauncey Billups’ freshman assist mark, USC’s Elijah Stewart did him one better, setting the school’s new career 3-point record with his canned jumper from the top of the arc in the second half Wednesday.

Stewart passed Lodrick Stewart, who played for the Trojans from 2004-2007 and made 232 3-pointers in his career. Elijah Stewart moved into a tie for 22nd place in the Pac-12 with Washington State’s Eddie Hill (1991-1994) at 233. With Stewart owning its new record, USC is 11th out of the conference’s 12 teams in all-time 3-pointers made by one player. Oregon’s Tajuan Porter (2007-2010) leads the conference all-time with 345.

The 3-pointer was the second of a pair during an important stretch that saw the Trojans build a sizable lead (which eventually evaporated). Stewart first made a step-back 3 on the wing, then caught, shot and drained the second 3-pointer.

USC allowed Colorado back into the contest, but ended up pulling away in the final minutes for a 75-64 victory.
