    Maddy Siegrist is the Big East’s new all-time queen, and she’s reached this milestone in a fashion befitting a Big East queen.

    The Villanova star posted a career-high 50 points in a 99-65 win over Seton Hall on Saturday, a performance that officially passed her Sarah Behn, who played at Boston College from 1989 to 1993, as as the Big East’s top career goalscorer.

    The record, which only includes Big East Conference games, previously stood at 1,546 points. Siegrist entered the game with 1,500 career Big East points and hit the mark with a performance that included 13 points in the first five minutes of the fourth quarter.

    Siegrist also broke Villanova’s all-time single-game record of 44 points, held by Shelly Pennefather.

    In addition to the 50 points, Siegrist was 20 of 26 from the field (4 of 6 from deep) with 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and no turnovers or personal fouls in 32 minutes.

    Siegrist, the reigning Big East Player of the Year, came on Saturday leading all of Division I in scoring with 28.2 points per game. A 50-point game that scores up to 29.1 ppg, a full point ahead of Iowa’s Caitlin Clark, who ranks second with 27.9 ppg.
