Why Steph Curry wanted to meet Taylor Robertson after NCAA 3-point record

Why Steph wanted to meet Robertson after NCAA 3PT record originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Paycom Center was filled with sharpshooters Monday night.

Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Jordan Poole helped lead the Warriors to a 128-120 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder with fellow 3-point shooter Taylor Robertson in attendance.

The Oklahoma Sooner recently broke the NCAA Women's Division I single-season 3-point record with her 498th triple against Iowa State on Saturday. Robertson was on hand for Monday's game, where she got to meet and participate in pregame warmups with Curry, a player she's looked up to throughout her career.

Curry joined NBC Sports Bay Area's Kerith Burke, Chris Mullin and Festus Ezeli on "Warriors Postgame Live" where he was asked the importance of meeting Robertson.

"Obviously a sharpshooter who has done some amazing things in her college career," Curry said. "To break that record and she's done it (with) that same thing I try to pride myself on that volume and efficiency. I think she's shooting 44 percent from three in her career. Timing was crazy, she just broke the record this week, we come to Oklahoma City and it's amazing to have her come to the game, get to meet her.

"I know she's looked up to me from the time she's started hooping. So pretty special, glad we can play well and get the win. I don't know if she's a Thunder fan or not, but tonight she's got to be for Dub Nation. It was really, really cool to meet her."

Robertson is one of the many young basketball players who have grown up watching Curry play and it certainly appears that she's following in his footsteps.

The WNBA better watch out.
