College basketball is a difficult sport for statisticians. There are currently 347 Division I programs, more than 11 times the number of NBA teams. Due in part to the large number of teams, complete college basketball stats are hard to come by (we currently have complete Division I stats back to the 1998-99 season).
We have had scans of historical college basketball stat sheets for some time, but the process to get them on the site was a bit laborious. However, I happy to announce today that we have added scans of stat sheets for 326 different schools, accounting for 8404 team seasons (full inventory after the jump).
Our hope is to one day replace these scans with stat tables that you can sort, etc., but for now we hope you enjoy this addition to the site. Please let us know if you have any questions or comments regarding the site.

In anticipation of the playoffs kicking off tomorrow, here's a reminder that you can use the Pro-Football-Reference Play Index to search for playoff games from the past and present.
The Player Game Finder will return all individual games that meet the criteria you select. Try searching for the most yards from scrimmage in a playoff game (Keith Lincoln alert), or use the "Cumulative Season Games" and "Cumulative Multi-Season Games" modifiers to group multiple playoff games in the same postseason or find career leaders.
Meanwhile, the Team Game Finder can help you find team playoff games under various criteria, like the most pass attempts in a playoff game or the biggest point differential by a team that trailed at some point in a postseason game.
You can get the most recent results the morning after the games are played, so by Sunday we should have Saturday's results loaded in. Just be sure to set "Game Type" to "Playoffs" on each tool, and have fun!
