He broke Adam's single game tournament record for scoring in a game.

This one is unreal: Clarke, Shaq and David Robinson are the only players in the history of the tourney to record 35 or more points and 5 or more blocks in a game.

But what was even more unreal: Clarke was so dominant that he willed Gonzaga to victory over Baylor despite Rui being a complete no show. Last week Rui's no show played a big part in GU's loss to SMC in the WCC final.

More blocked shots on the season than missed field goals...is there such a record?

Think he uses this game as a springboard into a nice payday in the NBA...

It's amazing, but surprisingly common. Shot blockers are typically high percentage shooters by nature and I just took a quick look and there are multiple players each season (including this one) that can say that they block more shots than they miss.

I wonder how many of those players, however, put up as many shots as Brandon?

Believe Brandon's FG% & 2P% should read .833.

Damn, you are absolutely correct. Fixed above. I hate making tables. There isn't a single decent site on the internet that will let you copy/paste a text line and convert it into a BBCode table (there used to be, but it's gone). Now, I have to do a bunch of manual conversions from HTML. Thanks, SLO. I should have caught that, since Brandon's FG% is nationally elite.

Yeah, those fg% are wrong. How does Clarke's 15/18 give him a lower fg% than Robinson's 12/18 night?

By the way, I was at that Navy vs Syracuse game in the Carrier Dome. The Doctor did that to Rony Seikaly on Syracuse's home court in an NCAA tourney game. It was an awesome display of domination by David Robinson

It was. And Seikaly is a name I haven't heard in a long time. Saw him vs. the SONICS https://i.imgur.com/O9GF3Kb.png in the now-being-renovated Key Arena (you should see the TONS of concrete that's being hauled out from the site). I got stuck in traffic the other day from about 12 trucks ferrying tons of brick/mortar from Seattle Center.

First Lebanese player to play in the NBA!

Nice BC article in USA Today. It mentions Tillie’s dad thinking Clarke’s in the wrong sport :D

Clarke is clearly the best all around player on the team and his draft stock went way up. Another game or two like that solidify himself as a lottery pick. I was at the game with the media and scouts, they were all excited about Brandon. We've had some good players who could jump but none with the type of hops Clarke has.
