  • Lofton took sole possession of third place on Senior Day Sunday against South Carolina;
  • needs 15 more threes to move into second place; won't happen this afternoon or this weekend;
  • is averaging 3.38 treys per game this season;
  • whether Lofton can get the record depends on the number of games remaining:
