    Not very surprising. Marbury had a few really good seasons in the NBA before his well known drop off occurred.

    I was surprised how little price and Scott had. Travis Best had a better career than I realized.

    Price averaged somewhere between 18-20 points a game for probably 5 or 6 years in his prime.

    Scott went to a bench role for the last 5 years of his career, which dropped his career average.

    Matt Harpring had a sneakily good career.

    Price is still in a virtual tie for the NBA's best career FT percentage at 90.4%

    Freshmen were ineligible for Varsity ball when Yunkus played. Rich's Varsity years were 1968-1969, 1969-1970, 1970-1971. And there was no 3 PT FG in that era. Rich's numbers would have been even higher as he hit many a shot from where today would have been a 3.

    26.6 PPG for those years

    Top 5 PPG:

    1. Rich Yunkus (1969-70) .................30.1
    2. Dennis Scott (1989-90) .................27.7
    3. Kenny Anderson (1990-91) ............25.9
    4. Rich Yunkus (1970-71) .................25.5
    5. Rich Yunkus (1968-69) .................24.1

    Gotta love when a ‘well-known drop off’ leads you to getting a statue of your likeness built in a different country. Haha
