ESPN recently shared the photo above to highlight the ten different players who have scored 50+ points in an NBA game this season. Following Damian Lillard’s 59 points last night, it sets a new NBA record for the most players to have such performances in a season.

Out of the ten players to score 50+ points in a game, four of them are former Kentucky Wildcats.

Devin Booker – 70 points vs. Celtics, 03/24/2017

DeMarcus Cousins – 55 points vs. Trailblazer, 12/20/2016

John Wall – 52 points vs. Magic, 12/6/2016

Anthony Davis – 50 points vs. Nuggets, 10/26/2016

And just because he was 3 points shy of reaching 50+ points,

Karl Anthony Towns – 47 points vs. Knicks, 11/30/2016

Want to guess how many Tarheels, Cardinals, Blue Devils, or Jayhawks that have had that kind of offensive performance this season?

The answer is zero.

    This list cannot be right… there are no Duke or Kansas players on it.

    Another fine example of the underachieving Cowherd was referring to.
