North Texas’ Tristan Thompson became just the ninth D-I player to hit 20 or more free throws without a miss in a game. Thompson went 20-for-20 from the line on his way to a career-high 36 points, as the Mean Green pulled off a 78-64 win in the Sun Belt quarters over regular-season champs Florida Atlantic. The last player to hit more free throws without a miss was Steve Nash in 1995. Thompson is the first player to go 20-for-20 or better in March since 1959, when Oklahoma State’s Arlen Clark set the record by shooting 24-for-24 against Colorado.

Most Free Throws in a Game Without a Miss, Last 20 Seasons
21-21: Steve Nash, Santa Clara vs. Saint Mary’s (1995)
20-20: Tristan Thompson, North Texas vs Florida Atlantic (2011)
20-20: Stefon Jackson, UTEP vs Marshall (2009)
20-20: Jeron Roberts, Wyoming vs UTEP (1998)
20-20: Donyell Marshall, Connecticut vs St. John’s (1994)
