Kentucky basketball: Nation’s longest streak of games with made 3-pointer snaps in NCAA Tournament

BOISE, Idaho — Kentucky basketball’s streak of 1,047 consecutive game with a made 3-pointer, the longest such streak in the nation, was snapped Thursday night against Davidson in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Kentucky beat Davidson 78-70, but it was the Wildcats’ first game without a made three since a matchup with Seton Hall on Nov. 26, 1988. The streak of 1,047 games with a make from deep began two days later.

Kentucky was 0 of 6 from beyond the arc against Davidson. Meanwhile, Davidson was 11 of 33 from 3-point range.

The Wildcats advance to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. They’ll face either Arizona or Buffalo on Saturday.
