1992 Troy vs. DeVry men's basketball game[edit]

  • Symbol question.svg I really like the article, but I am slightly concerned with the close paraphrasing of the hook fact. Compare:
The scoring pace was so insane that it took seven statisticians 57 minutes to compile the final box score.
->The pace of the game was so fast that it took seven statisticians 57 minutes to finalize the box score after the match ended.
This does not appear to be a significant problem, as I checked a checked a number of sentences and found only one other problematic:
It took Troy a full 54 seconds to register its first bucket.
->it took Troy State 54 seconds to score their first basket
I imagine it was just an oversight in these two cases. Please tweak those two sentences and then the article will be good to go. --ThaddeusB (talk) 20:12, 20 May 2014 (UTC)
