Young totals the most points from a Division I player since Ben Woodside of the State of North Dakota scored 60 goals against Stephen F. Austin in triple overtime on December 12, 2008.
Still in the game, Siena's Jalen Pickett had 46 points and 13 assists to become the second Division I player in the past 20 seasons with 45 points and 10 assists in a match, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Antawn Dobie of LIU also directed the feat on February 22, 2003 against St. Francis of New York.
The combined 101 points of Young and Pickett are the most opponents in a match since at least 1996-1997, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
Young's points total was not the highest in the school's history, however, Frank Vieira owns this mark with his 68 points against Brooklyn Poly on February 3, 1957.
