Story Highlight

Abbey Hsu
Columbia’s Abbey Hsu Shines On and Off the Basketball Court

Don’t leave Abbey Hsu open! The senior star of Columbia Women's Basketball recently set an Ivy League record for most 3-pointers. Now, she is also closing in on Columbia’s all-time scoring record (1,973 points). As this article published, Hsu had 1,962 points and was poised to break the Columbia record in an away game against Dartmouth.  

When Hsu is not on the basketball court, you can find her studying or riding a Citi Bike downtown to make the most of all that New York offers.
