A scan of the college basketball box scores each night guarantees all kinds of statistical oddities and standout performances. Here are some we found from Thursday:

Duke 78, NC State 73
NC State’s Scott Wood missed three free throws on Thursday (7-for-10) after missing three free throws in his last outing against Georgia Tech (2-for-5). Wood had made an ACC-record 66 free throws in a row dating back to last season before his first Georgia Tech miss.

Michigan State 69, Wisconsin 55
Draymond Green scored 20 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and handed out four assists for the Spartans, the fourth time this season he’s reached all three of those levels in a game. Only one other player this season has more than one such game; Lehigh’s C.J. McCollum has done it twice.

Florida State 48, Virginia Tech 47
Florida State went 1-for-8 from the foul line in the win. The Seminoles are the fifth team this season to win a game after making one or fewer free throws; the Seminoles’ eight attempts are the most of those five teams.

San Diego 78, Portland 75 (OT)
San Diego’s Christopher Anderson dished out 13 assists and recorded five steals in the win, joining UNC’s Kendall Marshall and Iona’s Scott Machado as the only players this season to reach both those levels in a game.

Central Connecticut State 65, St. Francis (PA) 60
Trillion of the Night: Tony Peters of St. Francis (PA) played nine minutes without accumulating a stat in the Red Flash’s 65-60 loss to Central Connecticut State.
