GREENSBORO, N.C. – UNCG men's basketball sophomore forward Nicholas Paulos (Salt Lake City, Utah/New Hampton School) has been named this week's Blue Chip Performer sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina. The Blue Chip Performer is chosen weekly from all sports in season and runs throughout the 2012-13 UNCG athletics campaign.

Paulos had a record-setting performance Thursday night in the Spartans' 94-68 victory as he came off the bench to hit a school-record 10 three-pointers in just 21 minutes of action. He connected on a staggering 10-of-12 (83.3%) from three-point land in the victory as his 10 three-pointers are the most for any player coming off the bench this season in NCAA Division I.

Paulos opened the first half hitting his first four three-pointers before breaking out in impressive fashion in the second half. He hit six consecutive three-pointers in the second half on six straight UNCG possessions scoring 18 points in just 2:53 off the clock. He finished the night with a career-high 30 points to break the UNCG single-game three-point record, which he held with current director of basketball operations Kevin Oleksiak.
