SHARE BYU basketball: Collinsworth sets NCAA career triple-double record after rebound recount

PROVO — After a triple-double performance in Saturday’s win over Belmont in the Marriott Center, BYU’s Kyle Collinsworth is now the NCAA all-time career triple-double leader.

The senior guard now officially posted 26 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in the Cougars’ 95-81 victory over the Bruins. The triple-double marks the first on the season and the seventh of his career.

The Provo native’s final rebound didn’t come until Sunday morning, as the NCAA approved his 10th rebound upon further review, according to BYU. Collinsworth missed a basket with just under three minutes to play in the game before making a clear attempt to follow-up the shot with a tip. Collinsworth was not originally given credit for his offensive rebound.

Collinsworth sealed the double-digit points early in the game, but the double-digit rebounds and assists didn’t come until the final minutes. After connecting with Nick Emery for a bucket in the final minute, Collinsworth sealed his 10th assist.

Collinsworth posted his first triple-double just shy of a year ago vs. Hawaii on Dec. 6, 2014, with 19 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists. The guard has since racked up six triple-doubles to set the record.
