If you missed it: Thursday's quirky stats
By ESPN Stats & Information
A scan of the college basketball box scores each night guarantees all kinds of fun oddities and standout performances. Here are a few we found from Thursday night:
Chattanooga 51, Wofford 48 Wofford missed 29 3-pointers in the game, the second-most by a Divison I team against another Division I team this season. The Terriers are the third team this season to miss at least 28 3s in a game against a Division I opponent. Somewhat unbelievably, all three have come against Chattanooga.
Manhattan 75, Iona 72 Iona's Scott Machado dished out a career-high 16 assists in the loss, becoming the first player since 1996-97 to record four games of at least 15 assists in the same season. UNC's Kendall Marshall (this season), ESPN's own Doug Gottlieb and TCU’s Prince Fowler (both in 1998-99) are the only other players in the last 15 years to have three such games in a season.
Stanford 68, Utah 65 The teams combined to shoot just 6-of-26 (23 percent) from the foul line, the lowest free throw percentage this season out of the 966 games involving a Big Six school.
Siena 83, Rider 79 Siena forward O.D. Anosike scored 23 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to record his 12th consecutive double-double, extending a school record. No other Division I player has a current streak of more than three straight double-doubles.
San Francisco 104, Portland 70 San Francisco shot 13-of-18 on both 3-pointers and free throws. The Dons are the fourth team this season to shoot exactly the same from 3 and from the line in the same game.
