Before the night began, Trae Young posted eleven consecutive games of 20+ points. The streak tied the likes of Stacey King and Wayman Tisdale. After a bit of a slow start on Wednesday for the true freshman, the Norman native came alive in the second half. Once again eclipsing the 20-point mark against Oklahoma State, Young separated himself from the former greats.
Now standing as the only player in school history to record twelve consecutive games of 20+ points, Young is in a league of his own. Needing a mere thirteen games to complete the feat, the guard has the ability to extend the streak. However, it’s likely not the only record Young will etch his name beside before the close of the season.
At this current point in time, Young leads the nation in points scored per game. Averaging a double-double through thirteen games, the stock of this youngster continues to rise. Not considered a “one-and-done” at the commencement of his collegiate career, the conversation around the budding star has changed.
Could Young become the first top ten pick in the draft from Oklahoma since Blake Griffin? At this pace, it looks like it!
