Autin Carr of Notre Dame sets an NCAA Tournament record, scoring 61 points as the Irish beat Ohio University 112-82 in a first-round game at Dayton. The previous record was set by Bill Bradley of Princeton in 1965. Carr would play seven NCAA Tournament games over a three-year stretch, averaging 41.7 points per game, which is also a record, as his average 52.7 ppg in 1970 and 41.7 ppg in 1971 are the top two in tournament history.
