The record was previously held by Scott Skiles, who accomplished the feat in 1983 against Ohio State.
Bridges hit five 3-pointers and finished 12/17 from the field, along with seven rebounds and four blocked shots while playing in 36 minutes. The rest of his teammates finished a pedestrian 15 of 35 from the field.
“It would’ve felt way better with a win,” Bridges said after the game. “But I give my teammates all the credit for that. They set good screens and made good passes.”
“I was in a zone. The hoop looked like the ocean to me. I was just throwing a rock in there.”
