Behind the box scores: Friday's games
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:
Delaware 72, Towson 65
Robert Nwankwo of Towson tallied 27 points and 20 rebounds in the Tigers’ CAA opening round loss. Nwankwo is the second player to record 25+ points and 20+ rebounds in a loss this season (Jeronne Maymon of Tennessee being the other on Nov. 22 against Memphis).
On another note, Towson lost their 31st game of the season, breaking the Division I record for most losses in a season (according to the NCAA record book).
Harvard 77, Columbia 70 and Princeton 64, Yale 57
Blaise Stabb of Columbia and Greg Kelley of Yale each played five minutes without accumulating a single stat.
