McAfee scored 48 points, the fourth-highest single-game total in Buccaneer history, in a 128-120 loss to Grinnell College in Flood on Saturday.  He was 20-28 from the field, the second-most field goals ever made, and 8-13 from the free throw line.  He also grabbed ten rebounds.  He averages 24.3 points and 6.3 rebounds per game for the season.
