All of the snow in Atlanta can’t get us down…well, it did postpone a game for a couple of days, but the beauty of conference play is that there is always another game right around the corner. So with the snow and ice gone (mostly), it’s time to get ready for UT Arlington.
So with an 11-game winning streak on the line, we have a lot of options for a Men’s Basketball Gameday Nugget. Let’s see if we can get the #Raceto1000 hashtag going with this one.
So here is our latest Men’s Basketball Gameday Nugget in honor of four great scorers:
Within the next few weeks, four Panthers could be among the 1,000-point club. Devonta White scored his 1,000th-point in the final game of last season and now has 1,203 for his career. Senior Manny Atkins has 924 points in his career. He spent his first two seasons at Virginia Tech and scored 211 points. So far he has 713 points in a Panther uniform.
Redshirt-junior Ryan Harrow has scored 914 points in his career. He scored 271 at NC State and 287 as the starting point guard at Kentucky. He has scored 356 points this season. Sophomore R.J. Hunter rounds out the group having scored 916 points in less than two full seasons.
Be sure to come back Monday for another Men’s Basketball Gameday Nugget as the Panthers face South Alabama in the Sports Arena at 7 p.m.
