The big question for Tahj -- did you have to look up your 3-pt pct or do you have it memorized?
The proof is not in the pudding, The proof of the pudding is in the tasting.
I see the logic however, I do not find this argument compelling. There are approximately 85M more people living in this country today and basketball is much more popular today. Accordingly, the talent pool is larger today than it has ever been.
All of the folks getting shout outs on this thread were (are) great shooters. Guys like Hayes & Mike did not have the luxury of a 7 footer in the lane that could pass out of the double team which needs to be made with Alex Len in the post. I just hope Logan can keep up this ridiculous clip.
BTW, Seth is now at 40% from deep on the season. That is also spectacular, especially for a freshmen. If Seth, Logan, Pe and Jake knock can knock them down in aggregate at 38+%, we are going to score a lot of points this year.

Good shout out to the Steel High Steamroller. Greg Manning was an awesome shooter.
and a Natty and an awesome Terp. That's a great shooting percentage for a guard. It will be interesting to see if Smotz and/or Layman can match that crazy percentage.
I'm still not totally clear on why he didn't perform as expected. It's a shame. He might have been really fun to watch if he had panned out. His HS vids made him seem like a sure thing.

[WMTerp12] Is Logan Aronholt our JJ Redick [/WMTerp12]
With nobody defending, just shooting, I'd take Magid all day long. In a real game situation it's a tough, tough debate.
One thing to consider.....when the arc was first adopted into the college game I believe it was a ridiculously close 19'9".
The really impressive thing is how quick his release is and how little space he needs to get it off. Hayes had a technically sound release, but man did he need a perfect setup pass and a ton a space and time. When he got it: deadly. What logan is doing is otherworldly though
Logan does get his shot off very quickly.
I watched it again last night and having big bodies like Shaq, Mitchell and Len to set screens is huge too. That's why you've seen so many open shots for Aronhalt.
When Mitchell signed it was ok, but he is a stud. Big body, nose for the ball, rebounds the ball. Turgeon did a great job year 1 recruiting, can't wait to see how he recruits and the players that come to MD as this team gets better and better. Love the post game where he said they are know where near where they will be in a month...
I know we yell Aiiiiiir Ballllllll. When the opposing team misses everyrhing.
I'm still waiting for our students to yell
Aiiiiiir enhalllllt when he shoots the 3.

He is college Ray Allen
Is this a real comment?
Steel High had very good teams and players back then.I was at McDevitt at the time and saw many of them.Greg was the best and a great player for the Terps.He did it for four years at MD against ACC competition.He gets overlooked imo because of King,Williams and Graham being on his teams.Still scored 1561 points in his career with those guys.
This is it. We have never had a more electric, automatic, 3 point shooter who could do his thing regardless of the defense, with the possible exception of Stoglin and Dixon. Aronhalt can shoot but he's not a star like these guys. They made it happen.
iheartjamesgist we picked the same ACC record this weekend. I'm starting to think we have some kind of connection. Or maybe it's just because we both went to Maryland during the Mike Jones, DJ, Gist, Ibekwe, Boom, Vasquez, Hayes era (03-07). No all-time best teams but there were some players worth remembering.

Hyperbole is fun. You should try understanding it some day.
Lol. At the very least, i'm going to start following your posts now. Obviously you're very intelligent, so it will be worth my while.

This is a boring topic, but people reeeeally need to stop citing 3pt%
Drew is who immediately came to mind for me
Juan Dixon was pretty good. So was Drew Nicholas and Mike Jones. Jeff Madgid or something like that from the 70s is regarded as the best shooter from that era. Eric Hayes isn't top 10 IMO. Aronholt is such a specialist I'm not sure he'll get enough shots to qualify. But he can stroke it, and doesn't need a ton of time and space (unlike Hayes).
