Untouchable NCAA Division I Records

This is going to be much more brief than I originally planned, but my A/C is out (for the third year in a row) and my family is slowing toasting to a fine crisp.

Yahoo!Sports.com's Jeff Eisenberg has developed a list of the 10 most untouchable NCAA DI basketball records. Eisenberg is revealing the list one feat a time; here's what he has released thus far:

Checking in at No. 10 is North Carolina's 56-game home win streak over fellow ACC member Clemson -- While this record is highly unlikely to ever be broken, I don't think it's unfathomable to see it fall some day.

No. 9 is Butler Bulldog Darnell Archey's 85 consecutive made free throws from 2000-2003 -- This is another record most likely to stand for infinity, but it's not outside the realm of possibility someone could shatter the seemingly unbreakable mark.

No. 8 is the Cincinnati vs. Bradley seven overtime contest in the 1982 season -- Although impressive, this is a record I could see falling.

No. 7 is Loyola Marymount's 186 points scored against US International in January of 1991 -- Bo Kimble, Hank Gathers -- who died in March of 1990 -- and coach Paul Westhead had LMU rolling in the late 1980's and early '90's with their shoot-every-seven-seconds philosophy. The resulting scoring record should probably stand for many, many more years.

No. 6 in Austin Carr's NCAA tournament scoring average of 41.3 points per game for seven contests ('69-'71) -- The 6-foot-4 Notre Dame super star is one of the great collegiate basketball players of all time, scoring 2,560 points in his career, and I find it difficult imagining anyone averaging that many points, in that many NCAA tourney games, anytime soon. And, oh by the way, included in Carr's record is a 52 point game against Kentucky.

Here's my prediction for three of the final five spots on Eisenberg's list: Pete Maravich's three year 44.2 points per game scoring average while at LSU (1967-1970), Kentucky's 129 game home court winning streak (Jan. 4, 1943 - Jan. 8 1955), and UCLA's seven straight NCAA titles (1967-1973) -- NONE of these records will ever be broken.

Time to find some air conditioning!!
