After each game we’ll induct a new player (from the opponent) into the TechHoops.com Hall of Fame after Tech makes them look like the greatest player in the world.
Today’s inductee is maryland freshman Jake Layman. Coming into today he was averaging 3.2 ppg and had never scored more than 10 in a game. He was 5/29 from 3-point range (17%) entering today’s action.
Well, he went off for 20 points today, including 18 at the break on 6/7 shooting and 4/5 from 3-point range. Yep, he almost had as many made 3s in one half as he had all season in 13 games. And he had 600% more points than his average points per game.
- byu: Tyler Haws – 42 points on 14/25 shooting (6/8 from 3-point range). Averages less than half that per game – 20.9 ppg. Has made more than 2 three-pointers in just 2 other games.
- csu: Dorian Green – 18 points on 5/6 from 3-point range. Green was a 30% 3-point shooter coming into the game, but found his stroke against the Hokies, going 5/6 from deep and is now a 37% 3-point shooter on the season.
