Highest in the Few era (and even before). Last time the Zags shot this high from the 3 was Dec 03, 1996 against Central Washington.

P.S. RPI is now 12, just behind AZ and MSU.

Maybe Numbercruncher or KStyles could find out where we rank now with 3 PT %. I think we were in the top 75 before tonight.

As of earlier today (not including today's game) we are 9th at 41.7% per game. This is according to teamrankings.com. The team in the lead is Colgate at 44%. According to ESPN, we are at 42.9% after tonight, which would put us at 4th on teamrankings.com behind Colgate, Rider, and Creighton.

Colgate is 42.5.
Rider is 42.2
Creighton is 42.7.

Zags are 44.3%. (139/314)

Hmm where are you getting your stats from? I have calculated our current percentage twice on ESPN and teamrankings and have gotten 42.9% or 42.8% (depending on rounding) all 4 times. I don't doubt you - especially for the other teams % - but trying to figure out where mine went wrong.

Ah! I should have gone to statsheet. ESPN didn't update after this game and apparently teamrankings is just wrong.

Do official stats include the Chaminade game? We shot 56% from three in that game, and 69% from the field.

That's a good question. From the stat sites, yes. Official? no idea. Non division I games don't count in the RPI or in Tourney seedings, but as for stats, I don't know (I doubt it matters much, other than for bragging rights and the TV talking heads).

i believe non-div 1 stats count, but like already mentioned, win-loss do not for tourney or rpi purposes.
