Lindenwood sophomore Landon Shuffett broke a 2-year old record of 117, set by his teammate Sean Sommers in 2012. But Landon's 118 was short-lived, as freshman Tanner Nickels recorded the first perfect score in UMTPC history just moments later.
There are still over 24 hours of pool to be played, but the Lions of Lindenwood are on track to take home 1st and 2nd place. Three of the four school pairings are standing comfortably in the winners' side of the third round of 9-ball. Team 8-ball starts tonight.
