Oh, what a night, Elena!

Random notes about Elena Delle Donne's 54-point night in Delaware's 88-83 loss to JMU:

- It's the highest scoring game of the season, eclipsing the 49 points Memphis guard Brittany Carter dropped on Sacramento State on Nov. 27;

- It's the highest scoring game in Division I by anyone since March 10, 2000, when Southwest Missouri State's Jackie Stiles went for 56 against Evansville;

- It's tied for the seventh-highest scoring game in Division I history. The record is 60 points by Long Beach State's Cindy Brown on Feb. 16, 1987. February seems to be the month for record-setting point totals, as eight of the nine highest-scoring games in Division I history occurred during the second month of the year;

- It set a CAA record, breaking the mark of 51 by George Mason's Keri Chaconas nearly a year to the day (Feb. 17) in 1995 against East Carolina.

- Delle Donne's 18 field goals ties the CAA mark also shared by ex-UNC Wilmington stars Tressa Reese (Feb. 13 - there's that month again - 1991 vs. Charleston Southern) and Wanda Carroll (Dec. 19, 1986 vs. Coastal Carolina).
