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.
Cleveland State 65, Loyola (IL) 47
Cleveland State missed just 12 shots from the field Friday night, matching the fewest field goal misses by any team this season. They’re the third team this year to miss just 12 shots, joining Norfolk State on Nov. 27 against Eastern Kentucky and Mercer against Navy on Dec. 30. Of the three teams, the Vikings attempted the most shots (37).
St. Peter’s 63, Siena 58
Siena’s O.D. Anosike finished with nine points and 13 rebounds, narrowly missing his 18th straight double-double. That would have been the longest double-double streak since Fairfield's Darren Phillip recorded 19 straight double-doubles in the 1999-2000 season.
Fairfield 77, Niagara 69
Although each team made exactly 24 field goals, Fairfield had 19 assists to Niagara’s four.
