Quick Hit-- Stat Style

Big East players are all over the Top 5s in the NCAA's individual statistics categories.

Notre Dame's Luke Harangody is the nation's 4th-leading scorer at 25.1ppg.

Harangody also is the NCAA's 3rd-best rebounder at 13.2rpg. Pittsburgh's DeJuan Blair comes in at No. 4 with 12.7rpg.

Connecticut's Hasheem Thabeet is second in the country in blocked shots at 4.0bpg... surprise, surprise.

Pittsburgh's Levance Fields is third in the nation in assists at 7.0apg.

Two Big East players that you wouldn't necessarily name right away hold the top two field goal percentages in the NCAA. Providence's Randall Hanke is No. 1 at 70.9 percent with Syracuse's Arinze Onuaku right behind at 70.6 percent.

Rounding it out, Marquette's Wesley Matthews is 5th in the country in free-throws made at 144 through 22 games.

Just a few stats to dissect on your Wednesday morning...
