In probably a first for New Zealand basketball, Idaho State Bengals guard Brooke Blair currently tops the NCAA Division 1 three-point shooting percentage chart.

Put into context, with 349 Women’s NCAA Division 1 basketball programmes, Blair is ahead of over 3,500 players on the shooting chart she heads.

Blair has connected with at least one triple in every game this season for the Bengals who are 2-1 in the Big Sky Conference and 9-5 overall.

This season the former Rangitoto College guard has made 34 from 67 attempts (50.7%) with six makes from nine attempts, against Washington back in November, her most productive outing.

The 2016 Tall Fern is leading the Bengals scoring in this campaign averaging 14 points per game.

Interestingly, next Saturday Idaho State take on Northern Colorado Bears. The Bears are unbeaten in Big Sky action and have a couple of players familiar to Blair – fellow Kiwis Krystal Leger-Walker and Tiarna Clarke. Leger-Walker and Clarke could be charged with keeping Blair quiet, the outcome will be interesting
