Player of the Night – Jack Cooley
Cooley notched his third straight double-double in the Notre Dame Fighting Irish’s 64-50 win over the Kentucky Wildcats. The Irish improved to 4-31 against ranked Kentucky squads.

Going up against one of the five tallest teams in the country, Cooley led all players with 11 rebounds. That includes six offensive boards, which led to eight second-chance points.

Freshman of the Night – Michael Frazier II
Frazier broke out in the Florida Gators' 82-49 drubbing of the Marquette Golden Eagles. The freshman scored 12 of his career-high 17 points in the first half. He came into the game averaging just 3.4 points per game.

It was the most points for a Florida freshman off the bench since Erving Walker in 2009.

Scorer of the Night – T.J. Price
Price was the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers' only player in double figures in a 65-54 road win over the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks. The sophomore finished with a career-high 30 points, as the rest of the starting lineup combined for only 16. Price accounted for 11 of his team’s first 13 points.

Ugly Stat Line Part I – Seton Hall
The Seton Hall Pirates committed 26 turnovers in a 72-67 loss to the LSU Tigers. That’s the most turnovers in a game for the Pirates since 2001, and the most LSU has forced since 2003.

Ugliest of all is when the bulk of those turnovers occurred. Seton Hall led 48-34 before committing 17 turnovers in the final 16 minutes of the game. That includes one stretch of four turnovers in a minute.

Ugly Stat Line Part II – Marquette
Marquette never led in its 82-49 loss to Florida. The Golden Eagles were held below 50 points for the first time since 2007. It was Marquette’s worst non-conference loss since a 33-point blowout by the Kansas Jayhawks in 2003.

Wednesday recap: Gordon, Lobos top MWC

Player of the Night – Drew Gordon
New Mexico went on the road to beat No. 15 San Diego State 77-67. It gave the Lobos their signature win and sole possession of first place in the Mountain West. Gordon finished with 17 points and 17 rebounds for his 12th double-double of the season. It’s the second time this season he’s gone for at least 17 and 17 on the road.

Stat Sheet Stuffer – Jack Cooley
Has anyone in the Big East stepped up as much as Cooley? He had 22 points and 18 rebounds in Notre Dame’s 71-53 win over Rutgers. Cooley has gone for 20 and 10 in each of his past three games, and is averaging 22 points and 15 rebounds during that stretch.

Freshman of the Night – Cody Zeller
Indiana held off Northwestern to win 71-66. Zeller led the way with 23 points and seven rebounds. Most impressively, he went 9-for-11 from the field, and now has 65.6 field goal percentage. Were it not for Ricardo Ratliffe and his historic pace, Zeller would be leading the nation in that category. The freshman record belongs to Michael Freeman, who shot 67.8 percent for Hampton in 2006-07.

Breakout Game – Jonathan Mills
Southern Miss outlasted Tulsa 77-69 in overtime thanks to a career game out of Mills. Entering the night averaging fewer than 9 points per game, he scored a career-high 25 points to go with 10 rebounds. Mills went 13-for-13 at the line and is 27-for-27 over his past three games. Not bad for a guy who was shooting 60 percent at the line going into that stretch.

Ugly Stat Line – Southern Methodist Mustangs
SMU shot just 17.4 percent in a 47-28 loss to UAB. It was the school’s lowest scoring total of the shot-clock era, and the fewest points since a 26-point effort in 1956. The Mustangs are the first team since Samford in 2008 to score fewer than 30 points and shoot under 20 percent.
