Blow Out Victories

I was surprised to see us in second place. I have to admit the robbie hummel comment is kind of funny.

No. 3: 102 points; Western Carolina 141, Toccoa Falls 39

Jan. 17, 2012: Western Carolina outrebounded Toccoa Falls 58-16. It also managed a slight turnover edge, giving the ball over fives times to the Eagles' 27 turnovers. Here are two minutes of highlights from the Catamounts' victory. (May not be safe for work if your employer bans the viewing of snuff films.)


No. 2: 106 points; Purdue 112, Indiana State 6

Jan. 10, 1911: Purdue played the Sycamores six times before 1911 and had gone 6-0, winning by an average score of 49-12 but really laid it on Indiana State in this matchup. The Boilermakers must have had a very talented team that year. Wait ... 101 years ago? Yep. That was probably Robbie Hummel's freshman season.


No. 1: 117 points; Long Island 179, Medgar Evers 62

Nov. 26, 1997: LIU used nonstop defensive pressure to destroy its Division III Brooklyn neighbor for the biggest margin of victory in D-I history. The Blackbirds had 39 steals and forced 60 turnovers -- or one turnover every 40 seconds. Yikes. LIU coach Ray Haskins expressed regret over the margin of victory several days later: "It wasn't by design, and what made it difficult was our style of play. I'm not proud of this, because to me, it's like a prize fighter beating up his little brother." Medgar Evers was very fortunate that LIU didn't have a boxing team. Getting knocked out hurts more than getting dunked on.
