FILE - This is a January 1970 file photo showing Notre Dame college basketball player Austin Carr. Carr played for Notre Dame in an era when prolific scorers dominated college basketball. LSU's Pete Maravich, still No. 1 on the all-time points list, was scoring 40 a night. Niagara's Calvin Murphy, Purdue's Rick Mount and St. Bonaventure's Bob Lanier, along with Carr, were others putting up eye-popping numbers. It wasn't until Carr scored a still-standing NCAA Tournament-record 61 points against Ohio in the first round in 1970 that, in his mind, he started to separate himself. (AP Photo/File)
