Stats & Info: Malcolm McMillan

Since Seth Curry transferred to Duke in 2009, Liberty has been very much out of the limelight. But that isn't the case anymore, thanks to a player who is putting up historic numbers.

Liberty guard Jesse Sanders had 10 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds on Thursday in a loss to Winthrop. It was his third straight double-double and 10th double-double of the season. Sanders has eight games this season with at least eight points, eight rebounds and eight assists. To put that in perspective, Providence's Vincent Council (3) is the only other D-I player with more than two such games this season.

Sanders became the first player in D-I history with a triple-double in each of his four collegiate seasons, posting 14 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds in an 84-78 win over High Point on Saturday.

Only three other players in D-I history have posted at least one triple-double in three collegiate seasons - Shaquille O'Neal (LSU 1989-92), Adonal Foyle (Colgate 1994-97) and Shawn James (Northeastern/Duquesne 2004-08).

Sanders' four career triple-doubles is only two shy of the all-time record of six set by both O'Neal and Drexel's Michael Anderson.
Sanders is one of seven players in the country this season leading his team in points (12.5 PPG), rebounds (8.0 RPG) and assists (8.2 APG). If Sanders finishes the season with those averages, he would be the first player in at least 15 years to average at least eight rebounds and eight assists per game in a season.
