At the 5:31 mark of the first half of tonight's contest at Farmingdale State, senior Lianna Carrero (Hamden, Conn.) recorded her 1,578th career point on a jumper in the paint to become the all-time leading scorer in Albertus Magnus women's basketball program history. Carrero surpassed the previous record of 1,576 points set by Albertus Hall of Famer Natalia Perlaza '05.
Carrero entered tonight's game needing just nine points to tie the record and 10 to break it and finished the contest with 22. With 9:19 left in the opening frame, Carrero tied the record with a three-point field goal.
The senior, who now has 1,589 career points, has started in all 86 career games played. She now averages 18.5 points per contest for the Falcons during her four-year career.
Albertus fell to Farmingdale State in the Wednesday night contest as Carrero shot 9-of-21 from the floor but it wasn't enough to lead the Falcons to victory.
The Falcons open 2013-14 Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) play on Saturday, Jan. 11 when they travel to Boston to take on Suffolk University in a 1:00 p.m. contest.
