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 Friday:
Robert Nwankwo of Towson tallied 27 points and 20 rebounds in the Tigers’ CAA opening-round loss. Nwankwo is the second player to record 25-plus points and 20-plus rebounds in a loss this season (Jeronne Maymon of Tennessee being the other on Nov. 22 against Memphis).
On another note, Towson lost its 31st game of the season, breaking the Division I record for most losses in a season (according to the NCAA record book).
