Numbers to Know: Tuesday Recap
By Jeremy Lundblad, ESPN Stats & Information
Player of the Night -- Victor Oladipo, Indiana Oladipo scored the Hoosiers’ final six points as part of a 9-1 run to end a 72-68 win against Michigan State. He bolstered his Wooden Award candidacy with 19 points, nine rebounds and five steals. In two games against the Spartans, Oladipo is averaging 20.0 PPG, 8.0 RPG and 5.5 SPG as Indiana snapped a 17-game losing streak at the Breslin Center.
Scorer of the Night -- Jordan McRae, Tennessee McRae scored a career-high 34 in Tennessee’s 82-72 win against LSU. That’s the most points for a Volunteer in an SEC game since Isiah Victor had 34 against Auburn in 2001. McRae is also the first Tennessee player to go 6-for-6 from 3-point range since JaJuan Smith in 2008.
Freshman of the Night -- T.J. Warren, NC State Warren posted career highs with 31 points and 13 rebounds as NC State beat Florida State 84-66. That’s tied for the third-most points in a game for a Wolfpack freshman. Only J.J. Hickson (33 in 2007) and Ernie Myers (35 in 1983) have scored more. North Carolina's Tyler Hansbrough was the last ACC freshman to go for 30 and 10 in a conference game.
Bench Player of the Night -- Eddie Odio, Boston College Three days after beating Duke, Maryland came up short against Boston College. Odio dominated the paint with eight points, 11 rebounds and six blocks. The past two ACC players to do that off the bench were Alade Aminu (2009) and Alvin Jones (1999), both for Georgia Tech.
Stat Sheet Stuffer -- Tristan Carey, Longwood Carey poured in a D-I school record 40 points to go with 12 rebounds as Longwood edged Liberty 102-101. He joins UC Davis' Corey Hawkins as the only players with 40 and 12 in a game this season.
