Stats & Info: Scott Machado

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 Thursday:

Duke 78, NC State 73
NC State’s Scott Wood missed three free throws on Thursday (7-for-10) after missing three free throws in his last outing against Georgia Tech (2-for-5). Wood had made an ACC-record 66 free throws in a row dating back to last season before his first Georgia Tech miss.

Michigan State 69, Wisconsin 55
Draymond Green scored 20 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and handed out 5 assists for the Spartans, the fourth time this season he’s reached all three of those levels in game. Only one other player this season has more than one such game; Lehigh’s C.J. McCollum has done it twice.

Florida State 48, Virginia Tech 47
Florida State went 1-for-8 from the foul line in the win. They are the fifth team this season to win a game making one or fewer free throws; the Seminoles’ eight attempts are the most of those five teams.

San Diego 78, Portland 75 (OT)
San Diego’s Christopher Anderson dished out 13 assists and recorded 5 steals in the win, joining UNC’s Kendall Marshall and Iona’s Scott Machado as the only players this season to reach both those levels in a game.

Central Connecticut State 65, St. Francis (PA) 60
Trillion of the Night: Tony Peters of St. Francis (PA) played nine minutes without accumulating a stat in the Red Flash’s 65-60 loss to Central Connecticut State.

Weekend recap: Plumlee cleans the glass

February, 13, 2012
Player of the Weekend - Miles Plumlee
Plumlee came off the bench to haul in 22 rebounds in Duke's win over Maryland. It's the most rebounds in a game in the Coach K era at Duke, and most for a Blue Devil since Randy Denton's 25 in 1970. The last player with more rebounds off the bench? North Carolina's Sean May had 24 on Senior Night against Duke in 2005 (a pair of Tar Heel seniors started and played one minute).

Freshman of the Weekend - Tony Mitchell
Mitchell had 22 points and 20 rebounds, but North Texas fell short of Florida Atlantic in double overtime. Mitchell is the first freshman with a 20-20 game since Michael Beasley. With six blocks and five assists, Mitchell is the first freshman with 20 points, 20 rebounds, five blocks and five assists since Seton Hall's Eddie Griffin in 2000.

Scoring Star – Jamal Olasewere
Olasewere went 11-for-11 from the field and scored a career-high 32 points as Long Island beat St. Francis (NY). That matched Vermont’s Luke Apfeld for the most field goal attempts without a miss this season. Olasewere is the first player to score 30 or more while going at least 11-for-11 from the field since Oklahoma State’s Marshall Moses last season.

Stat Sheet Stuffer - Scott Machado
With 10 points, 10 assists and 11 rebounds, Machado notched the second triple-double in Iona history in an 83-74 win over Marist. The previous triple-double came from Nakiea Miller in 2000. Machado is on track to be the first player to average double-digit points and assists since 1988 when Avery Johnson and Anthony Manuel did it.

Ugly Stat Line of the Weekend – Jared Sullinger
The good news? Sullinger had a triple-double in Ohio State’s 58-48 loss to Michigan State. The bad news? One of those categories was turnovers. Sullinger had 17 points and 16 rebounds, but his other numbers stick out more: 10 turnovers and a 33 field goal percentage. Of course, the rest of the Buckeyes shot just 24 percent. Sullinger is the first Big Ten player with 10 turnovers since Evan Turner in 2009.
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 Sunday:

Iona 83, Marist 74
Iona’s Scott Machado recorded his first career triple-double (10 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists) and the 10th in Division I this season. Nakiea Miller (March 5, 2000) is the only other player in Iona history to accomplish the feat.

LIU-Brooklyn 81, Saint Francis (NY) 78
LIU’s Jamal Olasewere made all 11 of his field goal attempts in the win, tying Vermont’s Luke Apfeld (Dec. 23 vs. Towson) for the most made field goals without a miss in a game this season.

Wright State 70, Milwaukee 46
Wright State collected just one offensive rebound, becoming the sixth team this season to win a game with one or fewer offensive boards. The Raiders are the only team to win such a game as well as lose to a team with a one or fewer offensive rebounds (Feb. 4 at Valparaiso).

Missouri State 64, Bradley 53
Bradley’s Taylor Brown missed all 11 of his field goal attempts in the loss, tying him for the third-most misses without a make in a game this season.
If the Kansas Jayhawks are going to be a contender, they might need a consistent scoring option to emerge off the bench. For just the second time in 15 seasons, Kansas’ bench was held scoreless. Duke captured its fifth Maui Invitational title with a 68-61 win. In a combined 30 minutes of action, Naadir Tharpe, Conner Teahan and Justin Wesley attempted just one field goal and didn’t have a rebound or an assist. The last time the Jayhawks didn’t get a point off the bench was a loss to Illinois in the 2001 Elite Eight.

Iona orders seconds of 30-10
Certainly, 30 and 10 is impressive. It’s even more impressive when two teammates pull it off in the same game. Scott Machado scored nine of his career-high 33 points in the second overtime to lead the Iona Gaels over St. Joseph’s 104-99. Machado added 10 assists to join Nate Wolters as the only D-I players with 30 points and 10 assists in a game this season. Meanwhile, Michael Glover chipped in 34 points and 15 rebounds. It’s just the second time in the past 10 seasons that a player has posted a 30-point, 10-assist game while a teammate went for 30 points and 10 rebounds. It was previously done by Fairleigh Dickinson against St. Francis (NY) in February 2005.

Purdue allows 8 field goals
Western Michigan simply couldn’t find the bottom the net on Wednesday. The Broncos connected on only eight field goals in an 80-37 loss to the Purdue Boilermakers. It goes down as the fewest field goals allowed by a Purdue defense in school history, overtaking the previous record of nine by Pittsburgh in 1947. The Broncos didn’t have a player connect on more than two field goals, and their leading scorer finished with eight points. Western Michigan shot just 17.8 percent from the field, the lowest against a Big Ten team over the past 15 years.

Tim Frazier goes for 20 and 10 - again
Last week, Tim Frazier became the first major conference player in the past 15 years with two 20-point, 10-assist games in November in the past 15 years. On Wednesday, Frazier did it again for the Penn State Nittany Lions, with 26 points and 11 assists in its 82-71 win over Youngstown State. That matches the most 20-point, 10 assist games in the Big Ten over the past 15 seasons. In fact, the last major conference player with more such games in a season was Chris Thomas for Notre Dame in 2001-02.

Camels crush Iowa
For just the fourth time in school history, Campbell beat a team from a power conference. This one was in convincing fashion, rolling over the Iowa Hawkeyes 77-61 in Iowa City. Eric Griffin led the way with 23 points on 10-for-11 from the field. Campbell shot 62.2 percent from the floor, the third highest for an opponent in Iowa City over the past 15 years. On the season, the Camels are shooting 55.7 percent, second in the nation to Texas Tech (55.8). Campbell’s most previous win over a power conference school came last season against Auburn.

Numbers to know: Lentsch scores 89

November, 21, 2011
Griffin Lentsch of Division III Grinnell College (Iowa) scored 89 points on Saturday, in the Pioneers' 145-97 win at Principia College. Lentsch's total is the third-most in NCAA men's basketball history and the most ever in a Division III game. He finished 27 of 55 from the field, including 15 of 33 on threes, and made 20 of 22 free throws.

The record across all divisions is 113 set by Clarence "Bevo" Francis of Rio Grande College of Ohio in 1954, while the Division I record is 100 by Furman’s Frank Selvy. Both performances occurred within two weeks of each other in February 1954. Lentsch’s total is the most in a game in over 57 years. The previous Division III record was 77 points by Grinnell’s Jeff Clement in February 1998.

Shabazz Gets a Triple Double

Connecticut's Shabazz Napier set career highs with 12 rebounds and 13 assists, along with a season-high 22 points, as the Huskies topped Coppin State 87-70. It was the second triple-double in Division I this season (along with Duquense’s T.J. McConnell).

Napier had never previously recorded double-digit rebounds or assists in a game. The 13 assists are the most by a UConn player since Marcus Williams dished out 13 against Notre Dame in 2006. Napier posted the ninth triple-double in UConn history and first since Kemba Walker last season.

Cunningham’s Prolific Free Throw Day

Three days after scoring a career-high 35 points against Hofstra, Oregon State’s Jared Cunningham poured in 37 on Saturday. The Beavers topped Texas 100-95 in overtime, their first win over the Longhorns since 1967. Cunningham shot 20-23 from the free throw line, tying a school record held by A.C. Green and Mel Counts. He fell three free throws shy of the Pac-12 record set by Washington State’s Bryan Rison in 1980.

Cunningham is the first Oregon State player with back-to-back 30-point games since Corey Benjamin in 1998. He’s the first Beaver to score 37 in a game since Gary Payton set the school record with 58 points against LSU in February 1990. Oregon State takes on Vanderbilt on Monday night looking for its first 5-0 start in 25 years.

Machado’s Assist Frenzy

In the span of three games in four days, Iona’s Scott Machado doled out 41 assists, including his second straight 15-assist game in Sunday's 89-63 win over Maryland. He’s the first player with back-to-back games with 15 or more assists since TCU’s Prince Fowler in December 1998. Doug Gottlieb fell one assist shy of pulling it off later that season.

It’s only November, and Machado is already the first Division I player with multiple 15-assist games in a season since Oakland’s Johnathan Jones in 2008-09. The 26-point win was Iona’s largest ever against a team from one of the power six conferences.

Jaguars Way Off the Mark

South Alabama was 0-24 from 3-point range in Sunday’s 80-39 loss to Florida State. That tied the Division I record for most misses without a 3-point make in a game, which happened twice before. In March 2004, South Carolina State went 0-24 from long distance in a loss to Florida A&M. Dayton then tied that record in November 28 in an overtime win over Auburn.
