Javon McCrea Record Watch

Who's the Best Player in MAC? THIS GUY! - Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

With a 15 point, 7 rebound performance against Ohio, Javon McCrea moves tantalizingly close to 2000 career points and 1000 career rebounds.

Javon McCrea passing Rasaun Young in the UB books doesn't mean the end of Record Watch. Happily, the way numbers work, there's always higher ones to look up to.

In this case, if you've been following Bull Run at all you know that with 3 regular season games left McCrea is approaching the very pretty round career numbers of 2000 points and 1000 rebounds. Only four other MAC players have ever reached both marks, and right now future Wooden Award winner Doug McDermott of Creighton is the only active player above 2000/1000.

You can find the full list of all NCAA players to reach the plateau here, courtesy of Wikipedia, and taking a look at the MAC Record Books, The Kraken is poised to move into the top 15 all time in MAC scoring and rebounding.

After his 15 point, 7 rebound, one very ticked off student section, effort in the Convocation Center last night, the senior sits at 1,935 points, and 955 career rebounds, just 65 points and 45 rebounds from glory.

With three regular season games, at least one MAC Tournament game, and certainly a bid into at least one of the lesser tournaments, things look good to reach both marks even if we see numbers slightly below season average.

To hit the marks on Senior night, Javon would need to average 22 points and 15 rebounds per game over the final three. It's possible on the points ledger, but likely a little out of reach when it comes to rebounds. At the same time, add an indeterminate number of games in the MAC tourney, and suddenly things look pretty good.

Additionally, on the single-season books, his 253 on the year are just eight shy of the record 261 he shares with Yassin Idbihi. It's all but assured that McCrea will graduate with the top two (and three of the top six) rebounding seasons in the UB modern era.
