In the nba? Marbury?
Either Marbury or Bosh.
Marbury: 19.3 ppg
Bosh: 19.2 ppg
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%
What about Rich Yunkus of '68-72.As Jr he was avg about 28/ppg,Can't remember SR.Maybe FR/Soph were low but he was a SCORING machine in his prime. (47 vs unc once) 3.5 gpa also
My bad, I meant in the nba. Yunkus or Scott for best per game at Tech?
Steve Nash. Both finished 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
Yea, great story of never giving up and making the most of your abilities.
