1. Scott Eatherton was named to the All Tournament team for the Puerto Rico Tipoff, and with good cause. He had a double-double in all three games, and has now had five double-doubles in six games at Northeastern. He played his first two seasons at St. Francis (PA) where he had six double-doubles in 57 games.
2. Senior Okaro White scored a season low six points vs Northeastern, the first time this year he's scored fewer than 13. The announcers credited him with scoring his 1,000th career point, but in reality he sits at 998. With his next basket he'll become FSU's 43rd player in school history to score 1,000 points, and he is currently on pace to finish behind Randy Allen (whose son Brandon is a freshman on the FSU team) in 15th place all time.
3. Guards Aaron Thomas and Ian Miller combined to record 10 steals. Miller's six steals sets a new career high, breaking his old mark of four (recorded three times). Miller only scored six points, but still leads FSU at 15.5 per game. He also hasn't started a game.
Has anyone in the history of anything improved as much as Ian Miller has improved at basketball over the past year?— Josh and Mike (@bigtengeeks) November 23, 2013
4. FSU stayed in the game by committing a season low 10 turnovers. It was a 65 possession game so FSU turned it over on 15.4% of their possessions, which is a figure they only bettered twice all of last season.
5. Northeastern scored 60 points, or 0.92 per possession. FSU has now held five of six opponents at 0.92 or below. Last year, FSU held six opponents to 0.92 or lower for the entire season.
