Player of the Night -- Damen Bell-Holter, Oral Roberts Golden Eagles
Oral Roberts moved to 3-0 in Southland play courtesy of a massive game from Bell-Holter. He finished with 25 points and a career-high 20 rebounds in an 80-74 win over Northwestern State. He’s the first player with a 25-20 game this season, and the first since Towson's Robert Nwanko last year. Oral Roberts hasn’t seen it done since Caleb Green did it in 2004.
Stat Sheet Stuffer -- E.J. Singler, Oregon
Oregon handed Arizona its first loss of the season, as Singler put together a complete performance. The senior finished with 14 points, seven rebounds and seven assists in the 70-66 win. He’s the first Oregon player to post those totals against a ranked team since Luke Ridnour did it against Kansas in 2002. It’s the second time Singler has had seven assists in a game. Both have been against Arizona.
Scorer of the Night -- Jud Dillard, Tennessee Tech
Dillard matched a career-high with 34 points in Tennessee Tech’s 77-73 comeback win at Eastern Illinois. That included 22 points in the second half, as the Golden Eagles erased a 15-point deficit.
Freshman of the Night -- Brandon Peel, Central Connecticut
Coming into the game averaging 2.2 PPG and 4.5 RPG, Peel had a breakout game in CCSU’s 84-78 win over Sacred Heart. The freshman posted career highs with 17 points, 17 rebounds and four blocks. He’s the first freshman to reach those totals since Tony Mitchell of North Texas last February.
Duo of the Night -- Trevor Noack and Ian Clark, Belmont
Noack and Clark both scored 30 points, as Belmont rolled over Southeast Missouri State 107-72. They are the first pair of teammates to score 30 or more in a game this season, and the first since Eastern Kentucky's Jaron Jones and Mike DiNunno last January. Their 60 combined points matches the most combined in a game this season. Holy Cross teammates Dave Dudzinski and Justin Burrell did it on Tuesday.
