AMERICUS - The No. 3 men's basketball Hurricane Highlight of the 2012-13 season came off a truly 'Shawsome' performance by senior forward Matt Shaw on February 7 in the Storm Dome against Columbus State.
The 6-foot-7 Shaw led the Hurricanes to an easy victory over the visiting Cougars by pouring in 27 points on 85.7 percent (6-of-7) shooting from behind the arc. That tremendous shooting performance tied the NCAA-era record for three point percentage in a game by a player.
Shaw wasn't the only Hurricane raining down threes, however, as the team shot an NCAA-era best 59 percent (13-of-22) from behind the arc in order to earn the impressive 96-66 victory.
The 30 point win was GSW's largest margin of victory ever against a Peach Belt Conference team.
Shaw, a native of Marietta Ga., finished his final season at GSW as the Hurricanes second leading scorer and rebounder on the year, averaging 13.3 points and 4.5 boards respectively.
