Kareem Maddox joins an exclusive group.

With his 30 points on Sunday against Siena, Kareem Maddox became just the ninth Princeton player in the three point shot era to reach this elusive total.

As the Princeton athletic department pointed out, Maddox is also the first player since Kit Mueller in 1990 to go for 30 without converting a three pointer.

Mueller had 14 baskets and four free throws. Maddox's line was 10 field goals, 10 free throws.

Including Maddox, four of these seven Tiger players hit for 30 or more in games that went to overtime:

-Noah Savage tallied 35 in Brown's 65-63 OT win at Jadwin Gym in February 2008. Savage was 11-17 from the field and 7-11 from three point range.

-Steve Goodrich scored 33 in a 78-72 win that took 45 minutes at the Palestra in the final matchup of the 1997-98 regular season. Goodrich was 11-13 on the night, 3-3 outside the arc.

-Gabe Lewullis scored 30 in a contest where Nate Walton memorably forced an extra session with a layup at buzzer as Princeton won 61-54 at UNC-Wilmington in November 1998.

The three times a Princeton player reached 30 or more in regulation:

-Spencer Gloger's 34 points on a school record 10 three pointers in 12 tries versus UAB in December 1999. I still can't believe the Blazers stayed in a zone and let the freshman Gloger repeatedly fire uncontested. The 34 points remain a freshman scoring record.

-Judson Wallace with 31 as Princeton defeated Holy Cross in November 2003 in the second game of the season. Wallace also added nine rebounds.

-Chris Young's 30 in a 73-55 win over Harvard in February 2000. Young missed just once from the floor (10-11) and hit four of five three point tries.

Prior to 1996-97, Rick Hielscher scored a career high 34 on 16-20 shooting at Dartmouth in 1995, Kit Mueller had an aforementioned 32 versus Harvard in 1990 and the final pre-three point shot occurrence was when Kevin "Moon" Mullin went for 38 versus San Diego in the 1984 NCAA tournament.

None of these players hit double digits in rebounds. Before Maddox's 30/10 stat line, this last happened when Brian Taylor went for 39 and 13 at Kentucky in 1971.

Maddox and Hielscher are the only players on this list to achieve 30 points coming off the bench.

As Stuart pointed out, Mullin had two 30 point games (one versus Yale) in the 83-84 season.
