Like he's done all year, freshman guard Trae Young ended his season in historic fashion.
Trae Young will be the first player in history to lead D1 in points and assists per game. Also the first freshman with 25 points, 5 assists, 5 rebounds in an NCAA Tournament game since Chris Paul in 2004 (h/t @ESPNStatsInfo)— Jonathan Givony (@DraftExpress) March 15, 2018
According to ESPN Stats and Info, Young is the first freshman to record at least 25 points, five assists and five rebounds in the NCAA Tournament since Chris Paul did so in 2004. The guard contributed 28 points, seven assists and five rebounds in the Sooners' 83-78 loss to Rhode Island.
He also will be the first player in Division I history to lead the nation in both scoring (27.4) and assists (8.8) since 1983, when assists were made an official statistic.
That closes the door on Trae Young's freshman season... He finishes with 27.4 PPG & 8.7 APG, numbers likely to make him the 1st player to lead D-I in PPG and APG in the same season since assists became official in 1983-84. pic.twitter.com/221nIHI09V— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) March 15, 2018
With the season over, Young will now have to decide whether he returns for his sophomore season or enters the NBA Draft.
