It was a typical Tuesday night in college basketball, then Division III guard Jack Taylor scored 138 points. We’ll touch on that, plus everything else that happened around the college basketball world in tonight’s Late Night Snacks.
Games of the Day
Grinnell College 179, Faith Baptist Bible 104 – By now, everyone knows about Taylor’s 138, but let’s take a look at some other stats. David Larson scored 70 points on 34-of-44 shooting for FBB. Ironically, that will be the single greatest game he will play in his college basketball career and it will be forever overshadowed by Taylor’s performance. FBB turned the ball over 49 times, giving Grinnell a +32 turnover margin. Twenty Grinnell players saw action Tuesday night.
Indiana 82, Georgetown 72 – Georgetown was able to push No. 1 Indiana into overtime, but the Hoosiers showed why they’re the top-ranked team in the country by outscoring the Hoyas by 10 in the extra period. The Barclay Center was rocking, especially considering this was a November non-conference game at a neutral site, which added some extra flavor. Cody Zeller and Jordan Hulls each had 17 points. Markel Starks had another big game for Georgetown with 20 points.
Michigan State 74, Boise State 70 – Keith Appling scored eight points in the final four minutes of the game to help Michigan State survive a scare from the Broncos at home. Boise State got within two in the final minute, but coach Tom Izzo’s team survived. Derrick Marks had 24 for Boise.
Texas A&M 54, Washington State 53 – Elston Turner hit a three-pointer with three seconds remaining to lift the Aggies over Washington State. That big shot was one of just two that he hit all night, finishing 2-of-13 from the field. Dexter Kernich-Drew had 16 points for Washington State.
Butler 82, North Carolina 71 – Brad Stevens’ Bulldogs had to fend off the Tar Heels after leading by as many as 27 points in the second half. Arkansas transfer Rotnei Clarke, a hero with his miracle shot that beat Marquette, had 17 points on 5-of-11 shooting against UNC. P.J. Hairston had 15 for North Carolina. Down goes the No. 9 team in the nation.
UCLA 60, Georgia 56 – Ben Howland said it would be “a long plane ride home” if UCLA had lost both of its games in Brooklyn. The Bruins used a big defensive push late to escape with a victory and a split at the Legends Classic.
Jeff Withey, Kansas – Withey had 25 points, five rebounds, and seven blocks in a win over Saint Louis. He was effective in getting to the line and converting, too, going 11-of-14 from the charity stripe.
Jordan Hulls, Indiana – Hulls was stellar in the Legends Classic, capped off with his 17-point performance in the overtime win over Georgetown Tuesday night. He was 5-of-8 from the field, including 3-of-6 from three-point range.
Otto Porter, Georgetown – Markel Starks had 20 points for the Hoyas, but Porter filled up the stat sheet once again. Porter had 15 points, five rebounds, four assists, two steals, and two blocks on the night. His layup with seconds remaining pushed the game into overtime, though Georgetown would ultimately fall to the country’s No. 1 team.
Alex Rosenberg, Columbia – Rosenberg posted 21 points and six rebounds in Columbia’s upset win over Villanova. He converted 11-of-14 free throws in the victory.
Cashmere Wright, Cincinnati – Wright scored 28 points on 8-of-14 shooting and had five steals in the Bearcats’ win over Campbell.
Kenny Boynton, Florida – Boynton shot just 1-of-6 from the floor Tuesday night in a win over Savannah State and turned the ball over three times. A strong game from Patric Young helped the Gators to a win, though.
James Michael McAdoo, North Carolina – The UNC sophomore had 10 points and five rebounds, but turned the ball over seven times in the Tar Heels’ loss to Butler.
1. UCLA still has a lot of work to do to shuffle its cards and find the right combination of players in the right situation to be impactful in the Pac-12. Shabazz Muhammad played well with 21 points, but he’s yet to be dominant like we’ve see from him during his high school career.
2. Georgetown is no pushover. The Hoyas were chosen to finish fifth in the Big East this season, but two days in Brooklyn have shown that John Thompson III’s team is legit. Look for them to make their way into the polls this week.
3. Texas needs Myck Kabongo back. But, even then, is this team going to do much in the Big 12, considering how they lost to Chaminade and now to a depleted USC team?
