Little Rock’s Josh Hagins makes tournament history in upset against Purdue


Hopefully you picked them in your bracket, because no. 12 Little Rock pulled an upset over no. 5 Purdue thanks in big part to the 31 points, seven boards, six assists and five steals from Josh Hagins.

A senior, Hagins had never had a stat line like that, he more than double his scoring average for the season, 12.8. In fact, no one in NCAA Tournament history has had a stat line like that, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

Moreover, Hagins joins two NBA Hall of Famers as one of the top three players to score the most points against Purdue. Not only that, but they’re NBA champions.

As if being in the company of NBA Hall of Famers and past superstars wasn’t enough, he knocked down a shot reminiscent of a current NBA superstar.

Remind you of anyone? Steph Curry *ahem* anyone?

Little Rock’s next opponent is on Saturday against no. 4 Iowa State.
