With three 3-pointers against Colgate, Smith has 34 for the season. It’s more than last season’s team leader, Quinton Stephens, had all season (32).
In Gregory’s four seasons, the leaders have been Mfon Udofia (35 in 2011-12), Udofia again (38 in 2012-13), Trae Golden (46 in 2013-14) and Stephens last season.
Smith has made 34 of 78 attempts, 43.6 percent.
Dishing it out
Guard Travis Jorgenson tied his career high with six assists and had no turnovers.
“I thought this was probably Travis’ best game since he’s been hurt,” Gregory said. “It looked like he had the pace back to his game.”
Jorgenson injured his ankle prior to the VCU game. He and Josh Heath had a total of 10 assists with no turnovers. They now have a combined 81 assists to 21 turnovers, a 3.86/1 ratio.
Following the game, players were released for the Christmas holiday. They are to return Saturday evening to begin preparing for the Duquesne game next Tuesday at McCamish Pavilion.
