One year ago Orono's Jordan Smith (now a walk-on at Wisconsin) broke the Minnesota state record for three-pointers in a career. That record stood for less than a season as Braham's Tyler Vaughan is the new three point record holder after making four treys Tuesday night in an 89-37 victory over Hinckley-Finlayson.
"About four minutes to go in the first half he got the record," said Bombers Coach Bob Vaughan who is also Tyler's father. "We stopped the game and acknowledged it and he will get the ball later.
"The record means (Tyler has had) a lot of great passers, has spent a lot of time spent in gym, and it means we shoot a lot of threes. He has really worked at it."
Tyler finished the game with 20 points, 12 rebounds, and nine assists. Teammate Anthony Bias scored 21, Cameron Braund had 22, and Shaun Hollenkamp scored 11.
Tyler's three point record means that Bob Vaghaun and the Braham Bombers have had the state's leading scorer at one point (Isaiah Dahlman who has since been passed by Cody Schilling and Kevin Noreen), the all time leading rebounder (Noah Dahlman who has since been passed by three players including the current recorder holder Noreen), and the all time assists leader (Jonah Dahlman who is now second behind Bryce Tesdahl), and now the all time leader in treys made.
"I am blessed beyond belief," said Bob Vaughan about having all these record holders at one time or another.
