Duke's Kelly among players under the radar
Duke 91, Wake Forest 73
Duke's Ryan Kelly came off the bench to score 20 points, grab 10 rebounds and hand out four assists in the win. He's the first non-starter this season to reach those three levels in a game.
Washington State 81, Stanford 69
WSU's Faisal Aden poured in 33 points off the bench in the win, the most points in a game by a Big Six non-starter this season.
The Cougars shot 93.1 percent (27-29) from the free-throw line, the highest percentage by a Big Six team this season in a game with at least 25 free throw attempts.
Central Connecticut State 69, Bryant 51
CCSU's Malcolm McMillan handed out 10 assists without scoring a point in the win. Six players this season have had a scoreless, double-digit assist game; McMillan is the first to do it twice.
Vanderbilt 69, Alabama 59
Alabama's Tony Mitchell missed all eight of his field goal attempts en route to the first scoreless game of his career. The eight misses are tied for most by a Big Six player this season in a scoreless effort.
Oregon 65, USC 62
The Trojans managed only five assists on 25 made field goals. They are the third Big Six team this season to record five or fewer assists on 25 or more made baskets.
VCU 69, William & Mary 68
VCU's Treveon Graham missed all seven of his field goal attempts but went 10-for-12 from the line. He's the third bench player this season to score in double-figures without a made field goal.
Niagara 75, Canisius 56
Niagara guard Juan'ya Green recorded as many assists (11) as Canisius' entire team.
