Marble moving up on scoring lists

Two dozen games into Iowa's season, it's time to look at some numbers of significance:

-- Senior guard Devyn Marble jumped from 13th to 10th on the Iowa career scoring list with his 26-point effort Saturday against Michigan, moving past Greg Brunner, Don Nelson and Andre Woolridge. He now has 1,529 points, putting him just 32 behind ninth-place Dean Oliver.

Marble should eventually be able to get as high as the No. 5 slot, currently occupied by Ronnie Lester with 1,675 points), and has a decent shot at surpassing B.J. Armstrong (1,705) at No. 4. If the Hawkeyes were to have an extended postseason run, Marble has an outside shot at catching No. 3 Greg Stokes (1,768) and No. 2 Acie Earl (1,779). He has no shot at reaching No. 1. His father, Roy Marble, scored 2,116 points for Iowa from 1985-89.

-- Roy and Devyn Marble now have 3,645 career points between them, which places them No. 8 on the all-time Division I father-son list. But they're about to move up.

Devyn needs only 27 points to vault them into fifth place. Rick and Jon Barry scored 3,653 points, Pete and Jaeson Maravich scored 3,667 and Pete and Josh Maravich collected 3,671.

Pete Maravich scored 3,667 all by himself during a legendary career at LSU, but his sons didn't do much at the D-I level. Jaeson played two games at Alabama without scoring and Josh scored four points during a nondescript career at LSU.

-- Devyn Marble now has 162 career steals, which is good for No. 8 on Iowa's career list. He is just four away from catching Jeff Horner.

-- Senior Melsahn Basabe is attempting to become the first player ever to lead Iowa in blocked shots four straight years, but it doesn't look like he's going to do it. He currently is third on team with 19 blocks, far behind Gabe Olaseni (35) and Jarrod Uthoff (28).

-- Chances are, the Hawkeyes are the only team in the country with five players averaging 0.5 or more blocks per game. In addition to Olaseni, Uthoff and Basabe, Aaron White and Adam Woodbury each have 12 blocks in 24 games.

-- The Hawkeyes may have a shot at setting a school record for most free throw attempts in a season. They currently have shot 707 free throws, an average of 29.45 per game. They will play at least nine more games — seven regular-season and two post-season — and at their current pace they would shoot 972 free throws. That would be the third highest total in Iowa history and with additional postseason games, they could reach the record of 1,068, set in 2001.

-- Marble and White both are now in the top 10 on the Iowa career list for free throw attempts. Marble is ninth at 545, White 10th at 516. Since White is a junior, he has a very good shot at reaching Acie Earl's school record of 725.

-- Basabe and White are locked in a good battle for the team lead in rebounding. Both have exactly 157 boards through the first 24 games.
