  • Lofton tied for third place Wednesday against Florida;
  • should claim third place to himself this afternoon;
  • is averaging 3.45 threes 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 Championship, Lofton still needs to average more threes per game than he is currently averaging. Second place is still well in reach. On the other hand, if Lofton hits 45 threes today, he'll tie for first this afternoon.
