Detroit Mercy guard Antoine Davis has set the all-time Division I men's basketball record for most made career three-point field goals after his dominant 41-point performance in a 87-75 win over Robert Morris on Saturday, per the Associated Press.

Davis has 513 lifetime three-pointers after hitting 11 of his 18 shots beyond the arc on Saturday. He broke the previous record of 509 set by Wofford's Fletcher Magee from 2014-19.

The senior got the job done with this deep three to put his team up 42-39 late in the first half. Remarkably, that also marked Davis' eighth three-pointer before halftime.
