Country Day's Plum ties CIF record
By Tim Haddock
SACRAMENTO -- Kelsey Plum tied a CIF Division IV championship game record with five 3-pointers in La Jolla Country Day's 72-41 blowout win over Salesian in the CIF State girls final at Power Balance Pavilion on Friday.
She scored 32 points, was 10-of-24 from the field and shot 45 percent from 3-point territory, hitting 5-of-11 3-pointers.
Teammate Maya Hood scored 19 points and had 13 rebounds for Country Day which won its third CIF state championship.
Plum tied the record for 3-pointers set by Country Day's Candice Wiggins in 2004. Mary Mott from Mission Prep in San Luis Obispo holds the CIF state record with six 3-pointers in the 1996 Division V championship game.
