Wofford guard Fletcher Magee set a new NCAA tournament record for most missed three-pointers on Saturday in the Terrier's 62–56 loss to Kentucky.

Magee went 0-for-12 behind the arc, recording the most three-pointer attempts without a make in tournament history. The senior finished the game with eight points and one assist while going 4-for-17 from the field.

"The ride that we've been on–just doesn't seem right to end on a game going 0–for–12 from three when if I go 3–for–12 we win the game," Magee said after the game, per ESPN. "I just don't understand how that happens. I'm sure I won't really get over it for a while. Sometimes that's how the game goes.

"If I would have played a little bit below average, we still would have beat Kentucky," he added. "It was just a horrible performance from me, and we lost."

Only two nights before Magee set a NCAA career record for most threes with 509 in a first-round win over Seton Hall. Magee entered Thursday's contest with 502, only two shy of tying former Oakland guard Travis Bader for the all-time record.

Kentucky advanced to the Sweet Sixteen for the third straight year with Saturday's win over Wofford. The Wildcats will either face No. 3 Houston or No. 11 Ohio State on Mar. 29 in Kansas City, Mo.
