It has all of the team ratings and player stats you need to help fill out your bracket this season, plus historical data (including scanned stat sheets going back to the 1940s) and a Play Index just for college basketball. Give it a try today!

Today I'm happy to announce a major addition to College Football at Sports-Reference.com. We now have passing, rushing, and receiving stats for all FBS (nee Division I-A) schools dating back to the 1977 season, and for schools from prominent conferences (ACC, Big 8/Big 7, Big Ten, Pac-12/Pac-10/Pac-8/AAWU/PCC, SEC, and SWC) we have passing, rushing, and receiving stats dating back to the 1956 season.
For more information about our data coverage, please see this summary. And if you have any questions or comments regarding these changes, please let us know.

We get asked this question a lot, and unfortunately it's not currently possible to find the answer via the Play Index, so I decided to put up a leaderboard once and for all. The most recent version of the question comes from BBR user Reggie:
I’ve seen references on here to games where two teammates scored 40 or more in the same game. But which teammates combined to score the most points in any game? [...]
One game that I remember very well as a Mavericks fan, which is often overlooked, was the overtime game they won at Chicago on November 13, 1994. That was the game where Jamal Mashburn hit for 50 and Jim Jackson went for 38, the two scoring 88 of the 124 points that night in the four point Mavs victory.
Since we have complete box scores (1985-86), here are the 200 most potent scoring duos in a single NBA game:

A little over a year ago we announced that we had posted copies of every box score in NBA history. However, since these box scores were scans we could not create player game logs, compute player splits, etc. As we said in that post, it is our goal to one day have all of these games in a database-friendly format.
On that note, I'm happy to announce that the work for the 1976-77 to 1979-80 seasons has been completed. Please take some time to check out the box scores, player and team game logs, and player and team splits for the 1976-77, 1977-78, 1978-79, and 1979-80 NBA seasons. Keep in mind that almost all of the scanned box scores are abbreviated (i.e., they only contain field goals, free throws, and points for the players), so there will be many missing values for each game.
