Austin Carr and the Top 10 Most Points in a Single NCAA Tournament Game
It gets better for Mr. Carr. Of the top 10 point totals in tourney history below, Austin places four times (twice in losses, indicated in the far right column). This was all back in 1970 and 1971.
In fact, it seems they just don’t score like they used to. David Robinson is the only player to appear in the top 10 post-1978. So, what about the 90′s, and 00′s?Follow @VinGetz
