“The college game is way different from the NBA,” Washington said. “The NBA game is kind of built on threes and layups now.

“In college it’s just grinding it out. In the NBA, you get a lot more attempts on threes. Basically, nobody shoots midranges anymore. It’s either a three or a layup and you’ve basically got to make them.”

Washington said he found out he had set the record after the game.

“I did a radio interview, and they told me,” he said. “I didn’t even know.”
