The final numbers for the 2015-16 men’s college basketball season are in at ncaa.org.

Some look good for Notre Dame, which led the nation in fewest personal fouls per game (15.1). Others, like 3-point field goal percentage defense (297th, 36.9 percent), not so much.

Notre Dame also finished in the top 10 (third) among the 351 Division I schools for fewest turnovers per game (10.0). Old Dominion led the nation at 9.1

The Irish, who went 24-12 overall with a second-straight trip to the NCAA tournament Elite Eight, finished 31st for field goal percentage (47.6), 34th in free throw percentage (74.2), 43rd in assist/turnover ratio (1.34) and 46th for 3-point field goal percentage (37.4).

On the opposite end of the stats spectrum, Notre Dame was 155th in field goal percentage defense (43.2) and 171st in assists per game (13.3).

Individually, Zach Auguste and Steve Vasturia each finished in the top 10 in the categories for double doubles (Auguste) and minutes played (Vasturia).

Auguste’s 22 double doubles for points and rebounds this season ranked ninth nationally. He also ranked 15th nationally, and first in the Atlantic Coast Conference, for rebounds (10.7).

Vasturia ranked 10th in the nation in minutes played (1,300).
