10 College Basketball Records That Can’t Be Broken

College Basketball Records: As the saying goes, “Records are made to be broken,” yet this isn’t always the case. Because certain records are so extraordinary, there is little to no chance that they will ever be broken.

The top 10 records in college basketball Records are shown below.

Take a look at these outstanding college basketball records and enjoy the quality!

1. UCLA’s Consecutive NCAA Championships: Seven

There will never be a team that wins more NCAA titles in a row than UCLA did from 1967 to 1973. There is no other stretch like this one in the history of college basketball.

Since the national tournament’s inception in 1939, just seven programmes have even managed to win consecutive titles. Oklahoma A&M (1945, 1946), Kentucky (1948, 1949), San Francisco (1955, 1956), Cincinnati (1961, 1962), UCLA (1964, 1965), Duke (1991, 1992), and Florida (2006, 2007) are the schools that have experienced these dates.

Any program’s chances of outperforming head coach John Wooden’s string of victories are quite slim. Consider it like this: The only college basketball programme with more than seven overall titles is Kentucky. There are presently eight Wildcats.

This level of dominance is uncommon for a team to exhibit in any sport. The University of Iowa men’s wrestling team won nine consecutive NCAA championships from 1978 through 1986. From 1959 until 1966, the Boston Celtics won eight consecutive NBA championships, surpassing the Bruins’ feat.

Despite the New York Yankees’ historical dominance, their greatest streak of World Series victories is five (1949–1953).

2. UCLA’s Consecutive Wins: 88

An incredible and uncommon feat is to go an entire season unbeaten. Since the Indiana Hoosiers (32-0) did it in 1976, no college basketball team has accomplished it.

Imagine UCLA going 88 games without losing over the span of four seasons. Wow! The Bruins broke Bill Russell’s University of San Francisco Dons’ previous mark of 60 victories set in the 1950s. Three NCAA titles (1971–1973) and two 30-0 unbeaten seasons (1971–1972 and 1972–1973) were part of the streak.

UCLA’s run reportedly started with a loss to Notre Dame in 1971 and ironically ended with a loss to Notre Dame in 1974, as noted in Wikipedia’s “Basketball Winning Streaks” entry.

Through the UConn Women’s teams from 2008-09 through 2010-11, a hat tip is due. They recorded 90 straight victories.

3. Career Scoring Average for LSU’s Pete Maravich: 44.2 Points Per Game

It’s difficult to think of an NCAA scoring mark for a career that Pete Maravich doesn’t own.

His 44.2 points per game lifetime scoring average is Maravich’s most astounding figure. It generates enormous headlines when a player scores 40 points in a single game. Pistol Pete had no specific memories of that Baton Rouge night.

During his three varsity seasons, Maravich averaged 43.8, 44.2, and 44.5 PPG, placing him in the top spot among all scorers each year.

He had 28 50-point games in his career while at LSU, according to his NBA.com legends page. In three years, he accrued 3,667 points in total. For comparison, Tyler Hansbrough of North Carolina is the ACC’s all-time leading scorer. In four years, he accrued 2,872 points.

To further put Maravich’s scoring into perspective, consider how BYU’s Jimmer Fredette’s prodigious scoring in the 2010–11 season enthralled the nation. Nearly 15 fewer points per game than Maravich’s lowest seasonal average, he only averaged “a mere” 28.9 PPG.

4. Jack Taylor scored 138 points in a single game for Grinnell College.

A college basketball team scoring more than 100 points in a single game is comparatively rare. That makes Grinnell College’s Jack Taylor’s 138-point outburst all the more incredible.

No one anticipated that the match between Taylor and Faith Baptist Bible in late November 2012 would go down in history.

However, Taylor launched 108 shots and connected on 52 of them, including 27 of 71 from beyond the arc.

Kamila Hinkson of The Toronto Star described the previous collegiate 100-point contests:

“Before that miraculous night, Rio Grande’s Bevo Francis held the NCAA scoring record with 113 points against Hillsdale in 1954…Frank Selvy is the only other college player to reach triple figures, scoring 100 points for Division I Furman against Newberry in 1954.”

I believe Taylor has the current single-game scoring record wrapped up tight since it took someone more than 50 years to surpass it.

5. Oklahoma’s Mookie Blaylock’s Single Game Steals: 13

Mookie Blaylock was one of the best all-around collegiate point guards of the 1990s. He was a superb attacker, a fantastic distributor, and a brilliant on-ball defender.

Blaylock was one of the finest thieves in the annals of collegiate basketball thanks to his exceptional agility, deft hands, and amazing anticipation. Blaylock recorded an astounding 281 thefts throughout his two years as a Sooner (3.8 SPG).

In a match against Centenary in December 1987, he committed 13 steals. Almost precisely one year ago today, Blaylock put on a similar feat, collecting 13 additional steals in a single game.

6. Alabama A&M’s Mickell Gladness’s Single Game Blocks: 16

Even though Mickell Gladness is the guy on our list with the least popularity, his shot-blocking stats are still excellent.

The 6’11” big returned 16 shots from Texas Southern in one game on February 24, 2007. In a season of great shot blocking, this was a fantastic moment. In 2006–07, Mickell blocked 6.3 shots per game, totalling 188 for the season.

For comparison, Anthony Davis of Kentucky, who was regarded as a shot-blocking prodigy, blocked 4.7 shots per game, with eight blocks being his career best.

7. The largest victory margin in a game for Lincoln University was 123.

Division III Lincoln University’s absurd offensive prowess was the antithesis of NIU’s futility.

Ohio State Marion was defeated by LU in December 2006, 201-78. Lincoln set a Division III-wide record for points scored. The other five Division III records that were established in this once-in-a-lifetime game were described by ESPN’s Joseph Santoliquito as follows:

“Points scored in a half (twice) — as Lincoln scored 97 points in first half and then 104 in second half; Largest margin of victory (123); Shots made (78); and Shots taken (141).”

There have only ever been 172 points scored in a game according to Division III.

I had never heard of a squad scoring more than 200 points, regardless of level. Not anytime soon will this one be shattered.

8. 4 were Northern Illinois’ fewest first-half points.

The remaining records are examples of brilliance and knowledge. Incompetence-wise, Northern Illinois established a record last season.

The Huskies scored a record-low four points in the first half of their game against Eastern Michigan. Fourth place! Huskies were unable to purchase a bucket. They made just 1 out of 31 field goal attempts for a dismal 3.2 percent (also an NCAA record), and they missed 29 consecutive shots in a row.

NIU didn’t show much progress in the second half. A another NCAA record, they won the game after converting 8 of 61 field goal attempts for a 13.1 percent success rate.

With seven points, all of which came in the final 8:38 of the game, Daveon Balls (seen in the image) led the Huskies in scoring.

9. Duke’s Shane Battier’s Charges Taken: 111

Although Shane Battier was a great offensive threat for the Blue Devils, he became well-known for his ability to guard virtually any player on the court.

His capacity for taking initiative is one of his distinguishing traits. He racked up 111 charges in his four years at Duke, which is a record for the university (the college basketball record is unknown). That is a significant number of hits to the deck. That is a lot of getting ready and perseverance.

Anyone else even attempting to take so many charges during their academic career is beyond my comprehension.

10) UNC’s Tyler Hansbrough’s Made Free Throws: 982

Tyler Hansbrough had a successful collegiate career by driving hard to the basket, drawing a foul, converting his free throws and going to the line.

During his four years at Chapel Hill, Hansbrough hit 982 of his attempts at the line. He contributed to this record by taking part in 142 collegiate contests. But the fact that he made an average of seven free throws each game is just incredible.

Hansbrough’s track record at the charity stripe appears safe in an era where more and more players struggle at the line.
