Mike Strange of the News-Sentinel in Knoxville caught up with former University of Tennessee standout and 2004 Kentucky Mr. Basketball Chris Lofton of Mason County this week upon his return to Knoxville for a basketball camp.
Lofton, who was one of the top three-point shooters in college basketball history as a Volunteer, has had a successful professional career playing overseas. Strange compared Lofton's career trajectory with another former NCAA sharpshooter -- current NBA MVP Stephen Curry.
“As a basketball player,’’ Lofton told Strange, “the NBA is always in the back of your head. It never leaves.’’
