Nwora notches career-high 32 points; Louisville defeats BC, 70-60
As Louisville continues to win (3-1 ACC), Jordan Nwora continues to put up big scoring numbers. In the Wednesday night win over Boston College, Nwora slapped up a career-high 32 points: 12-16 FGA, 5-9 3PA (41 3P% on the season). He also grabbed 10 rebounds and dished out four assists, too.

Speaking of career highs: Marcquise Reed; Clemson wins over GT
In a game that Clemson absolutely had to have, Marcquise Reed delivered in a 72-60 win over Georgia Tech — which hit the brakes on a three-game losing slide for the Tigers. Reed needed only 13 FGA to hit a career-high 30 points — to go along with four steals and only one turnover.
Georgia Tech’s James Banks continues to terrorize at the rim, though; the Texas transfer blocked four more shots, which gives him 41 for the season.
