Kristi Toliver set a new WNBA record tonight, a sentence that should not surprise many Maryland fans. The Mystics guard hit a record nine threes in Sunday's 82-68 playoff victory over the New York Liberty, breaking Diana Taurasi and Riquna Williams' record of eight in a game.

Toliver was an All-American during her two seasons at Maryland in 2005 and 2006. Hitting 3-pointers is nothing new — she buried 131 of them in a Maryland uniform. Her greatest moment as a Terp came in the 2006 National Championship game, when her game-tying 3-pointer against Duke forced overtime.

Toliver scored 16 points in that game on her way to leading Maryland to its first National Championship.

Toliver and the Mystics will begin a best-of-five series against the Minnesota Lynx Tuesday evening at 8 p.m. on ESPN2.
