Jacksonville State's Freeman sets mark



Published: Mon, February 10, 2003 @ 12:00 a.m.



BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) -- Jacksonville State's Shanika Freeman set a women's NCAA record by making 22 consecutive free throws in a game Thursday night.

Freeman went 22-of-22 at the line against Florida Atlantic, breaking the previous single-game mark of 20 in a row held by two players. Kristeena Alexander of George Mason did it against Central Florida in 1996. Liz Beggs of Kent State tied the mark against St. Bonaventure in 2000.

Florida Atlantic still won the game, 96-83.

"It's OK, but we still would have liked to have won," Freeman said. "The last couple of games I would shoot a lot of free throws after the shootaround. Guess it paid off."

The men's single-game record is 24 consecutive set by Oklahoma State's Arlen Clark in 1952.

Freeman, a 6-foot-1 sophomore center from Chattanooga, Tenn., finished the game with a career-high 42 points on 10-of-17 shooting. She added 13 rebounds, three blocks and two steals.
