Grizzlies post infamous feat in win Senior Night win

Reggie Hamilton did, indeed, move into first place in the nation in scoring by 0.03 points per game Wednesday night, but Oakland's scoring was bit lopsided, as it has at times been this season. Hamilton and Travis Bader combined for 59 of Oakland's 76 points and furthermore, Hamilton was the only starter to make a field goal (Drew Valentine made three free throws.)
How rare is that? Well, ESPN says it's the first time a team has completed such a mark this season.
Three Oakland starters didn't score at all in last week's double-overtime win at Western Illinois, and the bench outscored the starters in the both meetings with Southern Utah this season. Jan. 19, it was just a one-point margin, but Wednesday, the reserves led the way, 41-35.
