Former Olympus player sets 3-point record

Published: Sunday, Jan. 19 2014 7:45 p.m. MST

Former Olympus High all-state basketball player Nicholas Paulos had a career shooting performance for the University of North Carolina Greensboro on Saturday night during the Spartans' 92-83 loss to the Davidson Wildcats. Paulos, a junior, went 9-for-9 on 3-point field goals in a game played at the Greensboro Coliseum.

His performance was one of the five best 3-point shooting games in NCAA Division I history. Only one player has hit 10 consecutive 3-pointers without a miss in a single game, and three other players, besides Paulos, have hit nine. This was a UNCG and Southern Conference record.

Paulos adds this record to his single game record of 10 3-pointers, which he set last year vs. UT-Chattanooga when he hit 10-of-12.

Paulos now ranks 8th on the all-time list of 3-point shooters at UNCG with 159. He leads the Southern Conference in 3-point field goals and 3-point field goal percentage.
