When it comes to college basketball, it can sometimes be difficult for individual players to put up huge numbers because of the team oriented and generally low scoring nature of play in most conferences around the country.
Making things even more difficult is the fact that most of the players who are capable of having these stand-out nights find themselves on rosters full of immensely talented players and are forced to share the rock rather than takeover a game.
Which makes it all the more impressive when one of these collegiate athletes has a night that truly stands out. Having watched a few of these games, it really is a thing of beauty to see one of the best players in the nation firing on all cylinders right from the opening tip and not letting their foot off the gas until the clock hits 0:00.
Through just about a month of college basketball we've already seen quite a few performances that have wowed fans across the country and made us all look twice at a players stat line.
Whether they've been guards or bigmen, played in small or major conferences, scored 40 points or grabbed 20 rebounds, these are the best individual performances thus far from the 2010-2011 college basketball season. Let's just hope these guys are saving something for March Madness.
