Some numbers from the season that was

Although Cal State Northridge's men's basketball season is complete -- with the worst record (11-21) since 7-20 in 1995-96 -- the Matadores nonetheless put up some record-setting and impressive numbers.

Here is a sample, courtesy of the CSUN Media Relations Department:

* Cal State Northridge broke three school records during the 2009-10 season. The 933 free throw attempts broke the school record of 868 set during the 1996-67 season. CSUN made 624 free throws, breaking the old mark of 613 during 2000-01. Lenny Daniel set the school record with 44 blocks in a season, breaking the old mark of 37 set by Tremaine Townsend during the 2007-08 season. 

In fact, Daniel's 44 blocks is seventh on the school's career list.

* Daniel also had five blocks in three games (vs Idaho on 12/3/09, vs UC Riverside on 1/14/10, and vs Cal State Fullerton on 2/13/10), one short of the school record.

* Mark Hill had 12 free throws against Cal State Fullerton (2/13/10), ninth-best in school history.

* The 783 defensive rebounds are second-best in school history and only two short of the school record (785) set in 2000-01.

* Cal State Northridge scored 2,282 points, tied for 10th place with the 2008-09 team.

* The 431 offensive rebounds are third-best for a single season in school history.

* The 1,214 total rebounds are fourth-best for a single season.

Now for some Kenny Daniels marks:

* His 39 points vs Idaho (12/3/09) are third-best for a single game in CSUN history. Only 40 points by Mark Cooley at Cal State Fullerton (2/18/67) and  47 points by Ollie Carter vs Westmont (2/1/66) are better. The 39 points were the most by a Big West Conference player this season.

* He had 13 free throws against Idaho (12/3/09) which ranks seventh-best.

* Finally, he had 180 free throw attempts, eighth-best in school history.

* The 32 games played by Raymond Cody, Kenny Daniels, Willie Galick, Vinnie McGhee and Tony Osunsanmi are second-best for a single season in school history.

Then there was the record-setting triple-overtime game against Cal State Fullerton on Feb. 13:

* The 37 free throws made are second-best all-time at Cal State Northridge.

* The 49 free throw attempts are third-best for a single game.

* The 39 CSUN fouls tied the Matadome record originally set against Nevada (11/17/01).
