Hines hits all 10 shots as UNCG beats The Citadel
GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP)—Kyle Hines set a single-game school record with 10-for-10 field goal shooting, and North Carolina-Greensboro ran away to an 84-54 victory over The Citadel Monday night for its sixth straight victory.
Hines, who scored 22 points in 19 minutes to lead the Spartans (9-4, 3-1 Southern Conference), became the seventh player in Southern Conference history to go 10-for-10 or better from the floor in a game and just the third player to do it in a conference game.
The conference record for perfect shooting is 12 made baskets by Chattanooga’s Ashley Champion in 2002, and by Tyson Patterson of Appalachian State in 2000.
Hines has scored in double figures in 63 straight games, extending the nation’s longest streak.
The 30-point margin was UNCG’s most lopsided conference win since joining a Division I conference in 1993-94 as a member of the Big South. It was also the Spartans largest win over a Division I opponent.
Kevin Oleksiak scored 11 points for the Spartans, who rushed to a 17-0 lead in the opening five minutes.
The Citadel (5-9, 0-5 SoCon) got 19 points from Austin Dahn, including 5-for-7 from 3-point range. Tyrell McDowell had 12 points and seven rebounds for the Bulldogs, who started five freshmen.
