Greenville University hoopsters hit 200 mark

Greenville, IL — College basketball teams recently profiled by ESPN include North Carolina, Duke and Greenville University. Yes that, Greenville University tucked away in Bond County, Illinois. The Panthers reached the double century mark, beating Fontbonne University 200-146. Dr. George Barber, who has headed up the program for 20 years, says the key to the team’s high scoring ways is a continued cycle of fresh legs.

Barber says as 200 came within reach, he didn’t think twice about going for the rare feat.

Greenville isn’t alone in the 200 point club. Lincoln University of Pennsylvania set the record for most points in a game with 201 points in a win over Ohio State-Marion in 2006.
