  • Lofton took sole possession of third place on Senior Day Sunday against . . . South Carolina;
  • needs 17 more threes to move into second place; won't happen this afternoon (or this weekend, more than likely);
  • is averaging 3.42 treys per game this season;
  • whether Lofton can get the record depends on the number of games remaining:

Even if the team makes the SEC and National Championships, Lofton needs to average more threes per game than he is currently averaging, but four per game is really not out of the question for him.
