  • Lofton tied for fourth place Sunday against Kentucky;
  • should claim fourth place to himself this evening;
  • is averaging 3.31 threes per game this season;
  • whether Lofton can get the record depends on the number of games remaining:

We've reached the breaking point on first place. Even if the team makes the SEC and National Championship, Lofton still needs to average more threes per game than he is currently averaging. Second place is still well in reach.
