Next 5 Games
Otto Porter did a little bit of everything in leading Georgetown to a 78-70 win over No. 11 UCLA. The sophomore finished with 18 points, 11 rebounds, five assists, five blocks and three steals. He's just the fourth power conference player with 15 points, 10 rebounds, five blocks and five assists in a game over the past 10 years. Joining Porter on that list are Ekpe Udoh, Geoff McDermott and Luke Harangody. The last Georgetown player to reach all of those levels in a game was Michael Sweetney in 2002-03.
Jordan Adams is the 1st freshman in UCLA history to begin his career with at least 20 points in 4 straight games. Keep in mind, freshmen were not varsity eligible until the 1972-73 season. He's the 1st UCLA player to start the season with 20 points in 4 straight games since Don MacLean in 1990-91. The last UCLA freshman to reach double-digit scoring in 4 straight games was Kevin Love 5 years ago.
