Few things can turn a college basketball game around faster than a hot three-point shooter, so every coach loves to have a great marksman to lean on. Of course, the best shooters don’t need to wait to get hot, because they’re able to bury their jumpers any time the defense makes a mistake.
For the second year in a row, one of the best in that department will be Indiana guard Yogi Ferrell. Left to carry the Hoosiers offense last season, the 6’0” sophomore responded by adding 10 points per game to his scoring average while shooting more accurately than he’d done as a pass-first freshman.
Herein, a closer look at Tom Crean’s top sniper, along with the rest of the 15 highest-impact three-point threats in the country for next season. The gunners are ranked based on a combination of how accurate they are from long range, how much they’re going to score overall and how much of a factor their team will be on the national scene in 2014-15.
