It’s still early in the season and some of these numbers will likely dip as the season progresses, but it’s still fun to see where our current players stand in the Aggie Record Books. Here’s a breakdown through the first three games of the season:
Danny Berger has been extremely efficient thus far and has taken care of the ball claiming an 8-to-1 Assist-To-Turnover Ratio, placing him #1 all-time in the category. Some may think that this is a fluke this early in the season, but remember that Danny led the team last year in Assist-To-Turnover Ratio with a 2.09 A/TO ratio.
Spencer Butterfield has been deadly from downtown thus far, shooting over 57.1% from downtown. This is good enough to place him #1 all-time in Single Season 3pt FG%. Spencer also has a 2.0 A/TO Ratio placing him tied for 18th place with Justin Jones on the Single Season Assist-To-Turnover Ratio.
Kyisean Reed also has claim to a #1 spot on a Single Season record, posting 2.0 Blocks Per Game thus far this season. Reed is also #8 on the Single Season FG% List, and #14 all-time in Career Blocks.
Preston Medlin keeps adding to his legacy. Preston ranks 9th in Career 3pt FG Made and Career 3pt FG Attempted and 6th in Career 3pt FG%. Preston is also 11th all-time in Career FT%. As far as Single Season records go, Medlin is currently shooting .417 from downtown, good enough for 19th on the Single Season 3pt FG% list. He is yet another Aggie on the current squad to appear on the Assist-To-Turnover list with a 2.50 ratio thus far good enough for #6 all-time.
Jarred Shaw is the first player in several decades to average double digit rebounds. He is currently 19th in Single Season Rebounds Per Game with 10.3 per game. Shaw is also 12th in Single Season FT% shooting over 85% thus far.
TeNale Roland rounds out the list of Aggies in the record books thus far this year claiming the #23 spot in Single Season Assist-To-Turnover Ratio.
Aggie fans everywhere rejoice! Our good friend Matt “Fafner” Sonnenberg over at The Sagebrush Spot, and two other die hard Aggie fanatics, Jeff Browning and Josh McDonald have teamed up to put together the greatest Aggie-related podcast ever known to man: The Front Row Show.
I’ve listened to their first 5 episodes and enjoyed them thoroughly. I created a Front Row Show page on USUStats.com that will archive all of the episodes in MP3 format for your downloading and listening pleasure. You can also subscribe to their podcast on iTunes or visit them on Facebook and Twitter.
Check out the latest two episodes for a full preview of the upcoming basketball season, and an exclusive interview with the voice of the Aggies, Al Lewis. Go back further into the archives to hear game recaps from our first two basketball scrimmages and last two or three football games, including a guest appearance by Charlie Riddle, a current Bull Pen front row fan and whiteboard insult composer extraordinaire.
Give it a listen! You will be glad you did. I guarantee it.
