Jan 29, 2003
Dayton, Ohio - UIC shot a school-record 75% from three-point range, connecting on 12-of-16 from downtown, as they rolled to a 89-76 victory over host Wright State on Wednesday night at the Nutter Center.
The Flames shattered the previous record of 69% (9-for-13), set back on November 21, 2000, verus Texas-San Antonio.
Junior Cedrick Banks led UIC's three-point barrage, going 5-for-5 from behind the arc en route to a game-high 33 points.
Junior Aaron Carr, who hit 4-of-7 treys, added 22 points for the Flames. Junior Armond Williams posted his sixth double-double (12 points, 11 rebounds) of the season while senior Jonathan Schneiderman was the fourth UIC player in double figures with 13 points (3-of-3 3PT).
Junior Martell Bailey, the nation's leader in assists (8.2 apg), tallied a season-high 13 helpers, 10 of which came in the first half.
UIC (13-5, 7-2) jumped out early on the Raiders (7-11, 1-7), taking a 15-5 lead just five minutes into the contest as Carr knocked down a pair of three-pointers while Banks capped the early run with trey of his own.
The Flames would lead by 13 at the half and would extend that advantage to 22 in the first six minutes of the second period.
Vernard Hollins scored 25 and Seth Doliboa added 22 to lead Wright State.
UIC will be back in action on Saturday, February 1, as they welcome UW-Green Bay to the UIC Pavilion. Tip-off is set for 3:00 p.m. with the game being broadcast on Fox Sports Chicago.
