Broncos' woes are certainly not because of a lack of talent.
Many of the current
Ike Okoye is headed for the top five all-time at
is on pace to tie all-time great Tanoka Beard for 10th place at
Okoye improve his percentage down the stretch, he could topple Dave Richardson
and Sean McKenna from eighth and ninth place, respectively.
Kurt Cunningham is shooting an even better percentage than Okoye.
Cunningham is 262-439 (59.7%) for his Bronco career.
That sizzling percentage would rank fifth all-time at
is in range of #2 Phil Rodman. Rodman
hit 210 of 330 attempts (63.6%) from 1993-1996 for the Broncos, while Matt Nelson concluded his great career last season with a percentage of 61.5% for
third and Arnell Jones hit 59.4% from 1986-1988.
Billy Fikes' record of 70.1% (249-355) from 1990-1992 is so incredible
it may never be broken.
Anthony Thomas needs just 116 points to become the 19th
member o the 1,000-points club at
Thomas has 149 career steals—he has passed Mike Tolman
(145), Roberto Bergersen (138), Rawn Hayes (132) and Damon Archibald (129) with
22 steals this season. Thomas is
currently fifth all-time behind Chris Childs (215), Doug Usitalo (185), Gerry
"A-T" also has an outside shot at #5 in career assists
Thomas now has 119 three-pointers in his four-year career.
Thomas passed Joe Wyatt (1995-1997) for 10th place.
Directly in front of Anthony are #9 Brian King (120 treys from 1987-1990)
and Tyler Tiedeman, who finished his four-year career in 2008 with 129.
Anthony also has 339 career three-point attempts, passing
Booker Nabors, who had 332 from 2000-2004, Lance Vaughn, who launched 320 tries
from 1989-1993 and Wyatt, who had 307 from 1995-1997.
Bergersen holds down the #6 slot with 407 while Childs had 386 attempts
Thomas also tied Steve Shepherd for eighth place in the
Louisiana Tech game when he played game #114.
Cunningham is tied with Morgan and Washington for 10th with
113 career games.
Paul Noonan is in range of the three-point record book as
well. The sharpshooter now has 106
career treys, 14 shy of Brian King for 10th place.
He is just six attempts short of 10th place.
Both Noonan (106-301 for 35.2%) and Thomas (119-339 for
35.1%) can reach the top ten for three-point accuracy with a good finish.
But Noonan's most impressive accomplishment is his
remarkable free-throw shooting. The
Bronco with ice in his veins at the line is 122-145 in his career for 84.14%.
Going by percentage along, that free-throw percentage would shatter the
school record held by Bergersen (253-312 for 80.8%).
Unfortunately for Noonan, the category requires a minimum of two attempts
per game. Noonan has played in 80
games thus far, leaving him 15 attempts shy of being eligible!
