Here are a handful of statistical tidbits to help get you through your Friday:
>>> Landry Shamet was the only player to appear in all 54 Sixers games in 2018-19. Since he has now been traded, this will mark the sixth consecutive season that no one will play all 82 for them.
>>> Since making his NCAA debut for the University of Washington on Nov. 13, 2016, Markelle Fultz has played 25 college games, 33 NBA regular season games and 3 NBA playoff games. That is 61 games over a span of 818 days, which averages out to just about one game every two weeks.
>>> Villanova will take on Marquette Saturday attempting to increase its conference record to 11-0.
Here are the best starts in Big East history:
14 - St. John’s (1984-85)
14 – Connecticut (1995-96)
13 – Connecticut (1994-95)
11 – Connecticut (1998-99)
10 – Villanova (2018-19)
>>> Penn is shooting free throws at a 63.1% clip, which would be the worst by the school since the 1957-58 Quakers shot 63.0%.
