ARCO Memories: Bibby Sinks Nine Three-Pointers In Win Over Suns
As we say goodbye to ARCO Arena, we can’t say farewell without acknowledging a game that saw Mike Bibby convert none one, not two, but NINE three-pointers.
On March 25, 2007, the Sacramento Kings were all but eliminated from postseason contention when the top-seed Phoenix Suns came into town.
The Kings would go on to upset the Suns behind a massive effort from Bibby, who converted nine three-pointers (an ARCO record for triples made by a King) during a 107-100 win in a game that was broadcasted nationally.
Bibby finished the night with 37 points on 13-of-23 shooting from the field and a blistering nine-of-12 from beyond the arc while dishing out five assists.
After a 33-year run–28 years as the home of the Kings–ARCO will be demolished in the coming months to make way for a new California Northstate University medical school and teaching hospital.
The Kings will be holding a farewell event for the arena on Saturday, March 19th. You can find more info here.
