Philadelphia With Karen Habrukowich's second three-point field goal in Penn's 58-52 win over Columbia on Feb. 26, she moved into fifth on the Ivy League all-time three-point list. Now with 190 career treys, Habrukowich moved past Cornell's Mary LaMacchia (1992-96) on the all-time list. She is now just three shy of overtaking Princeton's Maureen Lane (1999-2003) for fourth. The effort also netted Habrukowich a Big 5 Player of the Week nod as well.
The Newtown, Pa. native became Penn's all-time leader from three-point range on Feb. 5 when the Quakers took on Dartmouth at The Palestra. Habrukowich also ranks among Penn's best in other categories as well. The Council Rock graduate is currently the Quakers' fifth-most accurate free-throw shooter with at .761 (216-for-284). Habrukowich is seventh on Penn's all-time scoring list with 1,189 career points, 14 points away from passing Cheryl Rath (1986-89) to move into sixth. With a pair of games remaining on the schedule, she has recorded 55 trifectas, the seventh-most in a single season and four short of passing her own mark of 58 three's (2002-03) for sixth.
Habrukowich currently leads Penn with 12.9 points per game, an average that rises to 15.7 in Ivy League play. Heading into this past weekend's action, she ranked 22nd in the nation in three-point field-goal percentage (42.4). She is now making 40.1 percent of her outside attempts, which also leads the Quakers.
