List Of Ncaa Division I Women's Basketball Career 3-Point Scoring Leaders

A three-point field goal (also known as a three-pointer or 3-pointer) is a field goal in a basketball game, made from beyond the three-point line, a designated arc radiating from the basket.

A successful attempt is worth three points, in contrast to the two points awarded for shots made inside the three-point line. The members on this list are the top 25 in 3-point field goals made in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I women's competition. The statistic was first recognized in the 1987–88 season, when 3-point field goals were officially instituted by the NCAA for women's play. From the 1987–88 season through the 2007–08 season, the three-point perimeter was marked at 19 ft 9 in (6.02 m) for both men's and women's college basketball. On May 3, 2007, the NCAA men's basketball rules committee passed a measure to extend the distance of the men's three-point line back to 20 ft 9 in (6.32 m); the women's line remained at the original distance until it was moved to match the then-current men's distance effective in 2011–12. On June 5, 2019, the NCAA men's rules committee voted to extend the men's three-point line to the FIBA distance of 6.75 meters (22 ft 2 in), effective in 2019–20 in Division I and 2020–21 in lower NCAA divisions. The women's line remained at 20 ft 9 in until being moved to the FIBA arc in 2021–22.

Through the 2023–24 season, Caitlin Clark holds the records for career threes and three-point attempts, having made 548 from 1,452 attempts during her career at Iowa from 2020 to 2024.

Seven players on this list played in more than the standard four seasons due to benefiting from the NCAA's blanket COVID-19 eligibility waiver for players active in the 2020–21 season—Taylor Robertson, Kendall Spray, Katie Benzan, Dyaisha Fair, Taycee Wedin, Taylor Mikesell, and Aisha Sheppard. All played in five seasons.

Four players on this list split their collegiate careers between two or more schools. Spray played at UT Martin, Clemson, and Florida Gulf Coast. Benzan played at Harvard and Maryland. Fair played at Buffalo and Syracuse. Mikesell also played at Maryland before transferring to Oregon and later Ohio State.

The player with the highest three-point percentage for her career on this list is Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis of UConn at 44.7%, while Shrieka Evans of Grambling has the lowest at 31.9%.

Five programs have placed two players in the all-time top 25—Ohio State with Mitchell and Mikesell, Idaho with Taylor Pierce and Mikayla Ferenz, UT Martin with Spray and Heather Butler, Maryland with Benzan and Mikesell, and UConn with Mosqueda-Lewis and Katie Lou Samuelson.
