Superstar Oklahoma freshman Trae Young has taken the college basketball world by storm, drawing Steph Curry-like comparisons through 10 games for his ability to shoot it from anywhere on the floor and score at an elite level. Not only does his 28.8 points per game lead the Big 12, but also the NCAA (by a pretty wide margin), which was on full display Saturday when he casually dropped 29 to lead the Sooners' charge against third-ranked Wichita State on the road. Tuesday night against Northwestern State, however, Young wielded a different weapon of his lethal arsenal, dishing out 22 assists, which ties the NCAA record previously established by Syracuse's Sherman Douglas in 1989, Charleston Southern's Tony Fairley in 1987, and former NBA guard and current Alabama coach Avery Johnson, who did it for Southern in 1988. The Big 12 record of 18 was previously held by Doug Gottlieb (Oklahoma State) in 1998 and Michael Johnson (Oklahoma) in 1997.
