Brandon Sherrod sets consecutive field goal record as Yale beats Columbia, 86-72

The Yale Bulldogs look to be the team to beat in the Ivy League this year as they are on top the world in the conference. Friday night, the team beat Columbia 86-72 and one of their players set an NCAA record in the process.

Senior forward Brandon Sherrod made his first five field goals in the game, which extended his streak to 30, an NCAA Division I single-season record. The record was previously held by Eastern Michigan’s James Thompson and Bowling Green’s Torian Oglesby, with a record of 26 consecutive field goals.

Sherrod hadn’t missed a shot since January 16 and he helped his team to an 86-72 win over Columbia. This big win gave the Bulldogs sole possession of first place in the Ivy League.
