Men's Hoops: Around the Belt Week Ending Jan 16th, 2011

AROUND THE SUN BELT CONFERENCE

· UALR made a school-record 17 three pointers in Thursday’s 81-50 win over ULM. The Trojans are shooting a Sun Belt-best 42.6 percent from three-point range overall and a blistering 51.0 percent from beyond the arc in conference play.

· UALR head coach Steve Shields pushed his career win total to 124 with last week’s 2-0 showing and now stands alone in second place on UALR’s all-time list for coaching wins.

· Arkansas State steps out of conference action tonight when they host Lamar rekindling the longest running rivalry in school history. This will mark the 79th meeting between the two schools.

· The attendance against FIU on Saturday night was 6,244, the fourth largest men’s basketball crowd in Magness Arena history and the most since January 2, 2006, when a record 7,186 fans saw the Pioneers beat Wyoming 69-64.

· Florida Atlantic’s six game winning streak is the program’s longest since the Owls joined Division I, and since the 1990-91 season.

· In the history of North Texas basketball, no other set of teammates has played their entire four-year careers together and scored more points than Josh White and Tristan Thompson. The seniors have combined to score 2,850 points over the last four years, which passes Fred Mitchell and Melvin Davis (2,844 point from 1975-78) for the program’s highest scoring duo.

· Josh White became just the seventh player in NT history to top the 1,500 point plateau on Saturday.

FIU's basketball arena can fit more than 6k people?

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

They've never even had 6k people at a football game! No way it was at home. Though FIU's arena can seat like 5,000, it's pretty big and it smells like pee.
