"I like fixing broken things" - Kevin Plank
Not sure what different era has to do with anything. If you can shoot, you can shoot. David Thompson played 40 years ago, but I'm pretty sure he'd be really good today. If you want to stick with the last 20 years, Logan is on a list with, Sarunas, Juan, Nicholas, Jones and Hayes. And Cliff Tucker, but only in UNC games.

"It's just so hard," Greivis said. "It's my heart, my love. Maryland made me who I am."
Hayes won that end of the year 3-point contest thing. Call me when Logan wins that.
"The biggest losers in life are people correcting message board grammar . Fact not opinion"
Mike Jones is the best shooter we've ever had. Period.
Agreed. I guess the point that I was trying to make is that the game has evolved and presumably played at a higher level (athletically). It's debatable that the overall skill level is as high. My hypothesis is that because overall athleticism has increased, defenders theoretically close on shooters quicker and are more likely to affect shooters. In other words, I believe a 50% shooter in the 1970s would unlikely shoot that percentage (or better) in the modern era.
He won't get the chance. He'll still be playing.
Magid was certainly the greatest "deep" shooter I have ever seen. There were regular stretches where on 3 or 4 posessions in a row he would swish shots from well behind where the 3 point line is now. He went on incredible streaks from deep. When Magid got hot it wasn't much of an exaggeration to say that he was a threat from anywhere past half court. Wish there were videos of his shooting.
Also, teams were probably less likely to concentrate on defending the long jumpers prior to the three point line just because they were only worth 2 pts. So, probably a lot more uncontested long 2's back in the day than if they had been shot in present day. I'm not saying Magid wouldn't have been an excellent 3pt shooter in present day, but there probably weren't all that many teams that had defenses based around defending shots at that distance compared to now.
Drew Nicholas is so underrated.
"The drummer for Maryland's pep band just freaked out: 'They're trying to slow the game down,' he screamed. 'Get up on them, get up on them.
Not at MD because he rarely left the bench before he transferred except in garbage time. I do remember one game at Cole where we were down 2 with just a few seconds left and he hadn't played at all. Lefty put him in and he hit about a 35-footer to tie the game. Then he went back to the bench.
I think he led the country in FT percentage at GW and shot better than 50% for his career.

Very good point.
In HS, as a Terp and at GW where he transferred. Sadly, I am close to his age.

For my money it's Jones 1 and Hayes 1a.
It'd be interesting to see either one of them play in this offense. Gary's offense didn't favor the 3 and he never liked to screen for shooters.

It didn't matter with Magid. He would just move out 5 more feet. He really was an incredible shooter. But I agree it is hard to compare different eras. Logan is definitely a great shooter. I really wish we had him as a freshman or soph.
I didn't get to see him much at GW since they were never on TV. He would have been a huge weapon if he had played with the 3 point line.
Greg Manning says hello....58 % from the field for his career as a 2 guard. 64% his junior year.90 % ft's for his junior year and almost 86% for his career..

Yeah, i should edit that to say "in my lifetime". I never saw Manning or Magid so I can't comment on them. And I don't know the percentages, but Jones had the best form I'm ever seen. Not to mention his great elevation that made it impossible to defend.
From the Terps teams I've seen, I'd probably rank it:

6'10, 265, 39.9% career 3 point shooter.
and some money shots in the NCAA tourney to boot
Logan has never been above 40% before (or even really close) so I'm a little skeptical that he is quite *this* good. I think Hayes was better, and Jones as well, but I may be biased by the two of them being better overall players. We will see as the season progresses.
Lucas was 265?
After sifting through the thread, seeing this put a big smile on my face. Thank you.
