Curran also is highly ranked in several other categories, including an 84.1% free throw shooting percentage, good for second all-time behind Gabriela Marginean. The former player of the year was always one of the top free throw shooters in the country, and her career mark of 88.9% is likely out of reach barring a near-perfect season from the charity stripe.
The senior forward also sits in second place in career three point percentage at 38.3%, just ahead of Kamile Nacicikaite and behind former teammate Fiona Flanagan who shot 40.8% overall. Current teammate and fellow senior Meghan Creighton is tied with Pearson for sixth overall at 36.2%. That’s three former high school teammates in the top seven in three point percentage.
Point guard Meghan Creighton is currently sixth overall in career three pointers with 175. She added 54 more treys last year, if she can equal that pace again she would end up in the top five all-time at Drexel. Curran has 92 career three-pointers which places her just outside of the top ten overall. If she can match her 51 baskets from last year, she would find herself in seventh by the end of her career.
One long-standing record may fall this year, and that is Barbara Yost’s nearly 30 year old record for career assists at 584. Creighton currently has 437 to her credit. She chalked up 184 last year, which would put her in first place with room to spare. Aided by seven games before being injured her junior season, Creighton has played in 109 career games to this point. She’ll need to play 23 to move into first place overall in that category as well, where she would overtake Flanagan.
On the men’s side, senior Rodney Williams enters the season with 659 career points. He’ll need to top his career-high 319 points from last year in order to surpass 1,000 for his career.
