Cleveland State’s Norris Cole had the game of the weekend with 41 points and 20 rebounds in a win against Youngstown State. He pulled off a double-double in each half and came within an assist of the first triple-double in Viking history, according to a university statement.

This Weekend’s Quick Hits…
* Norris Cole’s He-Man Game. 20/10 nights are damn impressive in the college game, but try doubling it. Norris Cole became just the second player in the last fifteen seasons to drop a 40/20 in a single game — and the other was an athletic specimen you might have heard of named Blake Griffin (40/23 against Texas Tech in 2009). Cole went for an absurd 41/20/9 assts against Youngstown State on Saturday, leaving us to wonder if he also ran the sound system, operated the scoring table and mopped up the soda residue and popcorn stains afterward. Sheesh… We know that Cole has had a handful (three, to be exact) of double-figure rebounding games this season, but how a 6’2, 170-pounder can pull down twenty makes no sense to us — he’s up for the Cousy Award as the best point guard in America, and with Cleveland State near the top of the Horizon League standings, let’s all hope that we get to see this kid play on the biggest stage this March.

Norris Cole, Cleveland State – The senior point guard and Cousy Award finalist turned in one of the most eye-popping stat lines of the season when he scored 40 points and snared 20 rebounds in Saturday’s victory over Youngstown State. With nine assists, Cole almost had a triple-double.
