Stats & Info: Wyoming

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.

Wisconsin 52, Minnesota 45
The two teams combined to make 23 baskets, matching the fewest in a game this season (SMU and UAB combined for 23 on Feb. 15). Wisconsin made 12 field goals in the win, one shy of the fewest made field goals in a win this season (Niagara made 11 in a win on Feb. 24). The Golden Gophers and Badgers shot a combined 27.1 percent from the field, the lowest in a game involving a major-conference team and the fifth-lowest overall.

Wyoming 71, TCU 59
The Cowboys committed just one turnover in the victory, the fewest by any team this season. The previous team to commit no more than one turnover in a game was Bucknell on Jan. 13, 2010, against American.

Ole Miss 77, Arkansas 75
Ole Miss’ Murphy Holloway had 16 rebounds and teammate Reginald Buckner had 15 in the Rebels’ win. They are the third pair of teammates with at least 15 rebounds each in the same game, joining Deniz Kilicli and Kevin Jones of West Virginia and Brad Waldow and Rob Jones of St. Mary’s.
Nebraska-Omaha 106, Peru State 71
Nebraska-Omaha attempted 95 shots, the most in Division I this season. Only two other teams have eclipsed 90 shot attempts this season: Troy (93) against LaGrange on November 13, and Stanford (92) against Oregon State on January 7. The Stanford-Oregon State game went four overtimes.

Hofstra 74, Towson 49
Towson went 14-33 (42.4 percent) from the free throw line in Wednesday’s defeat. Only Florida A&M (11-31, 35.5 percent) on December 5 had a worse percentage from the stripe (min. 30 FT attempts).

Albany 87, UMBC 76
Albany’s Gerardo Suero became the sixth player this season to score 30 or more points and make 10 or more shots from the floor without missing a free throw (min. 10 FT attempts).

TCU 58, Wyoming 52
Luke Martinez of Wyoming attempted 12 three pointers and grabbed eight rebounds, just the seventh player to do so this season. However, with six points Martinez is the only one of those seven not to reach double-digit scoring.

New Hampshire 52, Hartford 51
Trillion of the Night:
Corban Wroe of Hartford went 13 minutes without accumulating a single stat in the Hawks 52-51 loss to New Hampshire.
