The redshirt freshman hit nine three-pointers Monday night.

Florida Gators' redshirt freshman Carlie Needles sank nine three-pointers in Monday's win over North Florida to set the school three-point record, according to the Gainesville Sun.

Needles is just the fifth player in SEC history to make nine three-pointers in one game.

Needles finished the game 9-for-17 from three-point territory. Her ninth and final three-pointer came with 1:24 left in the game. She finished with 27 points -- all coming on three-pointers.

She broke the Florida record set by Bridget Pettis 20 years ago.

"It's pretty cool. It's not about the individual record; it's about what we do as a team," Needles said about breaking the record. "My teammates really looked for me and so without them, I wouldn't have shot the ball well. I noticed they had a couple good screens, and they really found me well. It wasn't just me."

The Gators won the game handily, 74-44.
