Fletcher Magee has led Wofford to the first NCAA Tournament victory in school history.
The senior guard buried seven 3-pointers and scored 24 points to lead the Terriers to an 84-68 victory Seton Hall in the Midwest Region. Wofford trailed 54-53 with just over 10 minutes remaining but outscored the Pirates 31-14 from there.
In the process, Magee became the most prolific 3-point shooter in Division I history, going past the mark of 504 set by Oakland’s Travis Bader in 2014.
Magee has now connected on 509 shots beyond the arc.
The seventh-seeded Terriers will face No. 2 seed Kentucky in the second round Saturday. The Wildcats advanced with a 79-44 blowout of Abilene Christian, but they are expected to be without their leading scorer and rebounder, PJ Washington. He was wearing a cast on his sprained left foot.
Wofford (30-4) was 0-4 in the NCAA tournament before its win over the Pirates (20-14).
