Sophomore Zach Queen became the 3-point king this season for the Washington & Jefferson basketball team.

Queen, a Hempfield graduate, set the school record with 3-pointers in a season with 69. The mark came in Saturday’s 80-76 home victory over Thiel in overtime.

His record-breaking basket with 4 seconds left in regulation tied the score 68-68 and advanced him one ahead of Brandon Studer, who connected on 68 3s in the 2003-04 season.

Queen has played in all 22 games for the Presidents (9-13, 7-6 PAC) and is shooting 42 percent from 3-point range (69 for 163). He is averaging 10.7 points.

Queen made eight 3s against Saint Vincent earlier in the season and six when W&J played Bethany.
