Randy Moss' daughter sets DIII mark with 63 points

Sydney Moss has set the women's Division III scoring record with 63 points for Thomas More College in a semifinal victory at the Presidents' Athletic Conference tournament.

The daughter of former NFL star Randy Moss broke Ann Gilbert's mark of 61 points Friday night when she made two free throws with 18 seconds remaining in the Saints' 106-88 win over Waynesburg in Crestview Hills, Ky. Thomas More improved to 27-0 and advanced to Saturday's championship game against Washington & Jefferson College.

Gilbert scored 61 points for Oberlin College against Allegheny College on Feb. 6, 1991. Cindy Brown holds the Division I record with 60 points for Long Beach State against San Jose State on Feb. 16, 1987.

Sydney Moss, a 5-foot-10 sophomore, transferred from Florida after her freshman season. Her father was an All-Pro wide receiver with the Minnesota Vikings and New England Patriots during an NFL career that lasted from 1998-2012.
