Behind the box scores: Tuesday'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 Tuesday.
Massachusetts 93, Duquesne 83
B.J. Monteiro of Duquesne recorded six personal fouls in the Dukes’ loss to Massachusetts. Monteiro is the fourth player to pick up six fouls in a game this season, joining Darrius Garrett of Richmond, Andres Torres of Hartford and Torian Oglesby of Bowling Green.
Villanova 70, Rutgers 49
Rutgers went just 3-25 (12 percent) from the field in the second half in its loss to Villanova.
Hampton 69, Morgan State 65
Darrion Pellum of Morgan State scored 23 points in the win over Hampton. Pellum became the first player this season to score 20+ points while making three or fewer shots from the field and attempting 20 or more free throws.
Trillion of the Night
