Stats & Info: Alex Young

Wednesday Recap: Hummel turns a corner

February, 23, 2012
Player of the Night - Robbie Hummel
With 29 point in Purdue's 83-65 win over Nebraska, Hummel had his best offensive game since twice tearing the ACL in his right knee. The numbers indicate that he’s turned a corner in the past four games. In that span, Hummel is averaging 24.8 PPG and 10.5 RPG, while Purdue has won three of four. That’s the highest scoring four-game stretch of his career.

Scoring Star – Nick Barbour
Barbour had a record night in High Point's 98-60 win over Campbell. His 44 points set a school Division-I record, surpassing the 42 that Arizona Reid put up in 2008. In the process, Barbour also passed Reid to become the school’s all-time leading scorer since joining D-I. With 2,092 career points, he trails only IUPUI’s Alex Young (2,239) among active players.

Stat Sheet Stuffer – Jae Crowder
Crowder did a little bit of everything in Marquette's 82-65 win over Rutgers. He finished with 27 points, seven rebounds, four assists, four steals and three blocks. The last player to reach all five of those totals in the same game? Georgetown’s Michael Sweetney in 2003.

Freshman of the Night – Julius Brown
Guards aren’t supposed to go 10-for-11 from the field. Especially 5’10” guards. Toledo outlasted Central Michigan 72-67 thanks to a career-best performance from Brown, who matched his career-high with 29 points. Among freshmen with at least 10 attempts in a game, his 90.9 field goal percentage was the fourth highest this season, and the highest for a guard.

Ugly Stat Line of the Night – Northwestern State
In a 50-37 loss to Sam Houston State, Northwestern State had perhaps the worst offensive game of the season. The Demons set an NCAA record for futility by missing all 26 of its 3-point attempts. Northwestern State shot 19.7 percent overall, the fifth lowest field goal percentage this season.
Marshall dishes out 16 for UNC
Kendall Marshall matched a career-high with 16 assists in North Carolina’s 84-78 win over Long Beach State on Saturday, equaling the team assist total for the 49ers. It’s the most assists in a game this season, and it's the most since Marshall himself had 16 last February against Florida State. Only three Tar Heels have ever registered more assists in a game: Raymond Felton (18), Jeff Lebo (17) and Ed Cota (17). North Carolina is 13-0 in Marshall’s career when he has nine or more assists.

Cooper finally gets his triple-double
On three different occasions, Ohio’s D.J. Cooper has fallen two rebounds shy of a triple-double. With a minute left on Saturday, he was one rebound short, before hauling in a Kevin Bailey miss with 40 seconds remaining. Cooper finished with 14 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in the Bobcats’ 72-54 win over Portland. He’s the first player listed under 6’0” to register a triple-double since Alabama A&M’s Trant Simpson in 2009. Ohio is 7-1 for the first time since 1969-70.

Kentucky loses despite efficient shooting
The top-ranked team in the country shot 55.6 percent from the floor and still lost?! That’s just one bizarre fact coming out of Indiana’s 73-71 win over Kentucky. It was the Wildcats’ highest FG pct in a loss since 2007. Kentucky’s Terrence Jones only attempted three shots, the fewest of his career. The Hoosiers won despite scoring only seven points in the final 7:45, all by Christian Watford. It was Indiana’s first win over an AP No. 1 team since beating Duke in the 2002 NCAA Tournament.

Young’s career night
IUPUI's Alex Young has more career points than any active Division I player. On Saturday, he scored a career-high 43 points in the Jaguars' 84-76 win over Western Kentucky. Young set a school record for a Division I game, eclipsing Odell Bradley’s total of 42, which he reached twice in 2004. It’s the most in any IUPUI game since Carlos Knox tallied 45 points against Drury in 1998. Young’s total is the most Western Kentucky has allowed since La Salle’s Ken Durrett scored 45 in January 1971.

Enquist, Cougars can’t miss
Washington State had its best shooting night in over 15 years in Sunday’s 93-55 win over Santa Clara. The Cougars connected on 67.4 percent of field goals, its best since 67.6 percent against Boise State in 1996. Brock Motum scored a career-high 27 points to lead the way, and Charlie Enquist connected on all seven of his field goal attempts. Enquist is now 28-for-34 on the season, an 82.4 field goal percentage. That’s the highest among all Division I players attempting at least three shots per game.
