These are the career leaders, in the primary statistical categories, for NCAA Division I college basketball – regular season.
Pete Maravich is the all-time offensive king. He has the most points in college basketball history, a record that may never be broken (all in three years and with 10 games over 50 points to boot).
But there are a few more-modern players on the list – modern meaning they’re playing in the NBA right now: Tim Duncan (Spurs), J.J. Redick (Magic), Tyler Hansbrough (Pacers), Jarvis Varnado (Heat) – and – check this out – Lester Hudson was just signed by the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 10-day contract. Hudson is the only player in college basketball history to record a quadruple-double.
Now, an important reminder – a few of these statistics have not been recorded since the beginnings of the sport. For example, assists, blocked shots, steals and three-pointers weren’t tallied until the mid-1980′s. Take a look at my source, the NCAA basketball record book, for the facts, and for a lot more, too.
