Morehead State’s Kenneth Faried Breaks Tim Duncan’s NCAA Rebound Record


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. — Move over, Tim Duncan. This NCAA record belongs to Morehead State's Kenneth Faried.

Faried snapped Duncan's modern-era Division I career rebounding mark with 12 boards in the Eagles' 71-65 victory over Indiana State on Saturday.

The 6-foot-8 senior, who also scored 17 points in Morehead State's ninth straight victory, now has 1,576 rebounds, six more than Duncan collected at Wake Forest from 1994-97.

The NCAA's modern era began after 1973, when freshman were permitted to play.

Faried tells The Associated Press in a telephone interview that he takes pride in his rebounding ability and is humbled to be mentioned in the same breath with Duncan.
