    Sixth-largest margin of victory. What were top 5?

    If this has been answered in any postgame threads (or game wrap-ups), ignore/delete.

    58-point win was sixth-highest. Who can name the other five without looking? (OK, feel free to look. Open-book test).

    I remember one not certain of season, but I remember score and opponent.

    Here you go: http://www.cyclones.com//pdf8/849827...B_OEM_ID=10700

    Notice that most of the biggest ones involve Fred Hoiberg as a player. When he mentions putting these sorts of teams down, he really means it. That's apparently a big part of his philosophy and development.

    I remember games that Freddy played in vs. Bethune-Cookman and vs. SUNY-Buffalo that were both blowouts. I remember it being extremely cold for the B-C game, but may be wrong about that. I watched it on TV hoping we would double them up on points.

    Didn't realize Fred was in two of the top six (sixth now w/ 3 ties, I guess).

    I remembered the Roosevelt score, for some reason. Didn't see the game, recall reading about it, and score seemed unreal (and that's only No. 3 all-time).

    Wow -- what a stat:

    Fewest Points Scored in a Winning Game

    Since 1939-40-
    16 vs. Missouri, Jan. 15, 1940

    Prior to 1939-40-
    11 at Drake, Jan. 18, 1913


    May my posts be polite and not misunderstood. (And hopefully funny on occasion.)

    I also like the least points scored (3) in 1913 and again in 1914.

    I was all over the internet in meltdown threads about that ****.

    I have no idea how basketball is watchable without a shot clock. Win, lose, whatever it just sucks
