GREENSBORO, N.C. -- His senior season is just beginning, and already, Francis Alonso has made the most three-pointers in UNCG men's basketball history.
Alonso is averaging a team-high 19.5 points a game, and has led the Spartans to a 6-1 start, which is the team's best record through seven games in program history.

PW: Favorite spot on campus?
PW: Who got you into basketball?
FA: My dad.
FA: He was a professional basketball player back in the day, and he ended up being a coach in the ACB, in the first division in Spain. So yeah, kind of in the family.
PW: What's tougher then, international ball or college basketball?
FA: Ooh, I can't say. I don't know. I plead the fifth, I plead the fifth!
PW: Any pregame superstitions?
FA: Just having my routines, you know, shooting routines and trying to get that done before the games.
PW: Play at UNCG. [What's] the best part?
FA: Best part: just the teammates, coaches, you know, people.
PW: Alright, that is "One Minute" with Francis Alonso. Francis, thank you so much!
