  • just like before the last game, Lofton needs nine three-pointers to move into 6th; not going to happen this game
  • is averaging 3.29 threes per game on the season
  • assuming there are 13 games left in the season (seven regular season and six post season), needs to average 5.08 threes per game
  • has hit five or more treys in six games this season (including an 8-20 performance against North Carolina A&T), so, you know, it's possible. You could win the lottery, or have an unnatural fondness for tax audits or something, too. No, really. It could happen.
  • Okay, then.

Really, though, I think Lofton only cares about winning, and bulldoggy for him for the attitude.

I have some scheduling issues today, so this is going up early. I'll be here for tip-off, but will likely have to leave before the game's over. In any event, leave your pre-, in-, and post-game thoughts below.

Go Vols! Hulk smash Bulldogs!
