good memories all.
That's what Dupay's new line of toupees will be called
I agree this thread has provided some education, particularly to those like me with short and unreliable memories. I remembered more the players like Beal and maybe Boynton and a host of others whose outside shooting seemed to suffer a bit as they made the transition from high school to college. But, probably because it disappointed me, I keenly remember how well Knight shot the threes as a freshman for UK
It was good to see the stats on all the Gator freshmen that did shoot well "from downtown" in their first year on campus. Fond memories for all!
I agree that Miller and Beal were our best freshmen under Donovan - and maybe ever. But, Frazier is shooting the rock (apologize for the Vitale expression) superbly for a freshman. If he keeps getting wide open looks the rest of the season, I could see him getting that percentage up quite a bit higher!!!!
Now I'm a little curious what Roberson's percentage was as a freshman. Hmmmm...
