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.
With the WAC tournament beginning tomorrow, let’s take a look at what this year’s players have accomplished in the Utah State Basketball Record Books.
Pane needs 7 more assists to enter the Single Season Assists List.
Reed would rank #3 all-time on the Career FG% List, but needs 37 more made FGs to qualify (minimum of 150 made FGs).
Utah State’s Preston Medlin had a career night on Tuesday in a win over UT-Arlington in the first game of this year’s Gossner Classic (a.k.a. Athletes in Action Classic Sponsored by Gossner Foods). Medlin came out on fire right from the get-go, hitting his first four three point attempts helping build a 20-8 lead for the Aggies. The Aggies never looked back and ended up winning the game 73-69. While the final score is somewhat close, that is mainly due to a flurry of three point makes by UT-Arlington in the last minute of the game. The game was never really in question.
Medlin finished the game with a very impressive stat line. He had career highs in points (27) assists (8), and steals (2), and pulled in 4 rebounds. He was terrific shooting the ball going 8-12 from the floor, 6-9 from downtown, and 5-6 from the free-throw line.
With Brady Jardine out with an injured foot, Preston Medlin has taken on the leadership role for this team. He’s shown confidence, passion, and a will to win. Medlin’s shooting performance also moved him up in the record books. He now ranks #5 all-time in Career 3PT FG% at 44.8%, and #4 all-time in Single Season 3PT FG% at 49.1%.
Danny Berger and Kyisean Reed also moved up in the record books after solid performances last night. Berger went 4-7 from three, moving him into the #6 spot (tied with Brian Green’s 2010-11 season) in Single Season 3PT FG% at 46.9%. Kyisean Reed continued his offensive dominance with another 13-point performance while shooting 4-5 from the field. This moved him into the #9 spot in Single Season FG% at 60.4%.
The Aggies face off against the St. Peter’s Peacocks tonight at 8:05 Mountain Time.
The season is now in full swing, and several Aggie players are now entering the Utah State record books here at USUStats.com. Let’s break it down:
3 Point Shooting
- With another good shooting performance against Seattle, Preston Medlin moved into 6th place in Career 3FG% at 42%, and 8th place in Single Season 3FG% at 45.8%.
- Danny Berger entered the Single Season 3FG% list as well coming in right behind Preston Medlin at #9.
- Adam Thoseby is knocking on the door at 41.2% from downtown thus far, but needs to make more treys to satisfy the 1 make per game requirement.
Field Goal Percentage
- Following in the tradition of great Aggie post players, Kyisean Reed has been impressive thus far in FG%. He is currently #20 in Single Season FG% at 58.3%.
Free Throw Percentage
- At the risk of jinxing him, we’re happy to announce that Danny Berger has yet to miss a free throw in his Utah State basketball career. Danny is shooting a perfect 8-for-8 thus far this season. He is shooting so well, that we actually broke USUStats.com when we tried to enter in his percentage. The highest it would allow us to enter was 99.9%. Our apologies Mr. Berger. Needless to say, Danny has sole control of the #1 spot in the Single Season FT% list.
- While Brockeith Pane’s percentages from the line are down slightly this year (76.1%), his career percentage is still good enough for #16 all-time in Career FT% at 79%.
