Junior phenom Jessica Kovatch drained 302 career 3-pointers to break the Northeast Conference record. Kovatch scored 32 points and made eight 3-pointers against Robert Morris Saturday afternoon.

The conference record was previously held by a Saint Francis alumna, Alexa Hayward. Hayward, Class of 2015, made 300 career 3-pointers.

Kovatch, a Phillipsburg, New Jersey, native, was the NEC Rookie of the Year. She was also named First-Team All-Conference after her sophomore campaign.

Kovatch is currently the nation’s leading scorer, averaging 24.5 points a game. She fits in perfectly with Joe Haigh’s run-and-gun scheme.

“If we get a rebound (Haigh) will want us to kick it out for a three instead of going up for two points,” said Kovatch.

This unconventional style of play is similar to the Golden State Warriors. Kovatch tries to play like Warriors’ guard Stephen Curry.

“I like to watch Steph Curry a lot,” said Kovatch. “My coach sends me videos of how Steph Curry comes off of screens.”

Curry holds the NBA season record for 3-pointers with 402. There are similarities in Kovatch’s and Curry’s styles of play.
