  • Lofton moved into fifth place Wednesday night against Auburn
  • needs eight three-pointers to move into 4th; unlikely this game, but he has hit eight threes in one game and seven in another this year, so it's not out of the question
  • is averaging 3.42 threes per game on the season
  • assuming there are 11 games left in the season (five regular season and six post season), needs to average 5.09 threes per game
  • has hit five or more treys in seven games this season (including an 8-20 performance against North Carolina A&T)

One more time: I care more about this record than Chris Lofton does.

Go Vols! Hulk smash Second Tiger!

Update [2008-2-23 19:42:28 by Joel]: Enthusiastic chest bump to Ghost of Neyland for finding the link to the Tyler Smith feature they've been playing on ESPN today. Take a minute and watch if you haven't seen it.

By the way, Third Saturday in Blogtober intends to post their in-game live blog a couple of hours after the game instead of during, so head over there late tonight or early tomorrow for their immediate reactions.
