Three Division I players in the state have scored more than the Big 12-record 48 points Iowa State’s Melvin Ejim had against TCU on Saturday.

But two of those three had an extra 5 minutes to play with.

The Cyclones’ Lafester Rhodes scored 54 points against Iowa in 1987. He had 46 of those at the end of regulation. Iowa State won 102-100 in overtime.

Drake’s Red Murrell scored 51 points against Houston in 1958 — his final college game. Drake won that game 88-87 in overtime. Murrell had 41 points at the end of regulation. The 6-foot 4 forward was the nation’s fifth-leading scorer at 26.7 points per game that season. The only players ahead of him were Oscar Robertson of Cincinnati, Elgin Baylor of Seattle, Wilt Chamberlain of Kansas and Bailey Howell of Mississippi State.

The only player to score more points in regulation play was Iowa’s John Johnson, who had 49 in a 116-97 victory against Northwestern in 1970. Johnson made 20-of-33 field-goal attempts and 9-of-10 free throws. And like Murrell, who made 20 field goals and 11-of-14 free throws on his record-setting night, Johnson didn’t have the benefit of a 3-point shot.

Ejim was 20-of-24 from the field against TCU, including two 3-pointers in as many attempts. He also had 18 rebounds. Rhodes made 20-of-31 shots from the field, including five 3-pointers in nine tries. He added 14 rebounds.

The single-game record at Northern Iowa is 40 points. Jerry Waugh did it in a 94-77 North Central Conference victory against North Dakota in 1968. Then in 1994 it was matched by Cam Johnson in a game against Drake. Waugh made 15 field goals and sank 10-of-12 free throws. Johnson was 14-of-25 from the field and drilled 8-of-13 3-pointers in a 102-79 win. Johnson also made 4-of-5 free throws.
