Behind the box scores: Wednesday's games

By ESPN Stats & Info

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 Wednesday.

Sam Houston State 50, Northwestern State 37
In what might have been the worst offensive game of the season: High Point 98, Campbell 60
High Point’s Nick Barbour scored 44 points in 32 minutes, tied for the third-highest scoring output this season. No player had scored that many points in 32 minutes or fewer against a Division I opponent since Feb. 13, 2010, when UTEP’s Randy Culpepper scored 45 in 32 minutes against East Carolina.

Northeastern 85, George Mason 82 (OT)
Northeastern’s Jonathan Lee scored 27 points on four field goals (one 3) and 18 free throws. He’s the first player to score that many points on four or fewer made baskets since Evansville’s Colt Ryan scored 28 points on four field goals and 19 free throws on Dec. 23, 2010.

Marshall 66, Houston 58
The Thundering Herd made just 4 of 18 free throws (22.2 percent), the lowest free throw percentage in more than three years for a team with more than 10 attempts. Incidentally, Marshall shot 4-for-18 on 3-pointers as well.

Lafayette 84, Colgate 67
The Leopards made 18 3s in the win, tied for the third-most made 3s by a team this season. They made only 10 2s, becoming the seventh team this year to make at least eight more 3-pointers than 2-pointers.
