Scott Thomas....looking back

  1. One of the top all-round players in BG history, he finished #21 in career scoring, #6 in 3-pointers, #10 in rebounds, #3 in steals and #9 in assists.  Suffice it to say that we did not have another player hanging around the top career rankings in that many categories.  Colin Irish and David Jenkins were both similar in that they scored and rebounded, and Jenkins got the steals, but Thomas added assists.
  2. Twice all-MAC Honorable Mention and all-MAC third team.
  3. Oddity:  Scott Thomas hit 199 steals and then went 3 games without getting even one.  Odd no?
  4. He had 10 career double-doubles.  Which is kind of symmetrical.
  5. His effective FG% increased from about 47% his SO and JR years to 52.5% his senior year, 14th in the MAC.
  6. His offensive rating was 105.7 as a SR, almost .1 better than his junior year.
  7. He shot 68% from the line as a senior, compared to 59% as a JR.  However, he only made it to the line 71 times as a SR, 35th in the MAC in FT Rate.
  8. Even with no steals in the last 3 games, he finished #16 in the nation in Steal %.
  9. His foul-out @Buffalo with 2 games left in his career was the first and only time he fouled out.
  10. Career high was 28 points in Morehead game in SR year.  Top MAC game was 27 points as a SO against Kent.
