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.

Rare Big East win for DePaul
DePaul outscored Pittsburgh 7-0 in the final 10 seconds of the game to come away with an 84-81 win. The Blue Demons had lost 16 straight Big East home games and had only won two Big East games in the past three seasons combined. All three of DePaul’s conference wins over the past four seasons have been by three points or fewer. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh has lost four straight games for the first time during the Jamie Dixon era.

Monster performance for North Texas freshman
North Texas outlasted South Alabama 78-73 in overtime courtesy of a monster performance from freshman Tony Mitchell, who finished with 34 points and 16 rebounds. He’s the first freshman to put up at least 30 points and 15 rebounds since Jared Sullinger last season.

In fact, over the last five seasons, the only other freshmen to pull it off were Fordham’s Chris Gaston and Michael Beasley, who had five such games. Mitchell, who was once Missouri bound, was playing in just his seventh game.

Jones happy to be back in San Diego
Rob Jones saved his best game for his former team. The St. Mary’s senior scored a career-high 31 points to go with 12 rebounds in a 78-72 win over San Diego.

Jones spent his first two seasons at San Diego before transferring in 2009. In fact his previous career-high of 27 came as a freshman at San Diego back in February 2008. St. Mary’s has won 12 of 13 and improved to 14-2.

Seven points at halftime for Louisiana-Monroe
Louisiana-Monroe had only seven points at halftime in a 58-30 loss to Florida Atlantic. The Warhawks actually had as many turnovers as points in the first half. Charles Winborne’s three points led the team going into the break.

No one on the team finished the game with more than two field goals. The team shot 19.5 percent on the game, the second worst shooting performance by a D-I team this season. That included 17.9 percent from two-point range. For Florida Atlantic, it set a school record for fewest points allowed in a half and in a game.
