We now move outside of the arc for the Minutes Per Three-Pointers Made category.
This group is fairly self-explanatory. Which players can fill up the basket from deep in the shortest amount of time. Coupled with a decent percentage, this can be telling for the future.
Interestingly, only one player in this group of 10 has graduated, which should provide for an entertaining 2010-11 for the SEC.
Another category, another dominating player. Find out who by reading on!
Gabriel didn't see much playing time for the Tigers last season, and took 36 of his 56 attempts from long-range. He's got a great deal of refining to do before he can be a real threat, shooting just 30.6 percent from deep.
Gabriel is a rising junior, and may be counted on more with the loss of Auburn's star shooter Tay Waller.
Beal is yet another sharpshooter in a long line of Vandy sharpshooters. He was also a spectacular leader and point guard, with a 1.98 assist-to-turnover ratio.
One of the best heavily-used shooters in the conference, Beal drained 37.9 percent of his threes and an impressive 44.0 percent from the field.
His loss to graduation will be tough on the Commodores, but Jenkins—a standout-to-be—could take over his spot in 2010-11.
Okay, so this is the best picture I found. Get over it.
Beattie saw only 93 minutes of floor time last season, but hit seven of his 17 trey attempts for 41.2 percent. While he will never be a starter, he's a pretty solid shooter for a backup.
He returns as a senior this upcoming season.
Johnson was at one point the best three-point shooter in the country and still has that potential. His height and vertical jump lend themselves to a great shooting percentage.
And great it is. Despite launching 214 attempts from deep, Johnson hit 40.7 percent of those shots and 47.8 percent of all of his attempts—some very impressive numbers.
With MSU's loss of steadfast Barry Stewart, Johnson will be counted on even more in his 2010-11 senior season.
Davis served his time off the bench shooting threes, and that was it.
He was one of the rare players who actually shot better from three (40.6 percent) than he did as a whole (39.4 percent). Add on top of that the 4-of-11 mark from the free throw line, and this is one very inconsistent dude.
A great spot-up shooter and not much else, he'll be a senior in 2010-11.
Clarke was marked preseason by several publications as one of the best shooters in the country, and he didn't disappoint. It's not an exaggeration to say the Razorbacks' game-by-game results largely depended on his performance on the court.
Clarke was one of two SEC players to record triple-digit number of treys and he did so at highest rate of the conference: 42.7 percent. His 45.5 percent effort from the floor and 82.7 percent performance from the charity stripe are both excellent, especially for an underclassman.
Clarke is a rising junior and could be the best shooter in college basketball in 2010-11.
Warren made more threes than any other player in the league—as a point guard. Though his passing talent went somewhat underused, it was understandable considering his touch from outside the arc.
Warren nailed 40.4 percent of his threes a year ago, hitting a eye-opening 111 of them.
Warren will be the senior leader of his team in 2010-11.
Amongst a haze of superior athleticism and talent, Dodson just liked to shoot the ball. And shoot the ball he did, often entirely too much.
Dodson's mark of 34.7 percent is barely average and yet he launched 144 of them. His precision needs to improve before he allows himself to attempt as many shots next season.
Dodson will be a junior next year.
It's not often that I am this overwhelmed by a player's performance, and it's not often that I find words to describe that feeling difficult to grasp. Kentucky's Cousins didn't even awe me to the degree in which this guy did.
Jenkins—the only freshman on this list—absolutely destroyed numbers, and the bottoms of nets, across the nation. He hit 72 of his 149 attempts from beyond the arc. That's 48.3 percent as a freshman, folks.
Needless to mention, Beal brought down 53.9 percent of his shots from the floor as whole, shot 80.0 percent from the charity stripe and posted a 1.30 assist-to-turnover ratio. This kid's presence on the court and basketball knowledge is beyond most any collegiate player and beyond incredible for his age.
Look for Jenkins to become a super-hot commodity across the nation and on NBA draft boards in the not-so-distant future.
Waller, a former JUCO transfer, became one of the league's best shooters and was a huge threat anywhere on the floor for the struggling Tigers.
For someone to be relied on as heavily as Waller was, he performed impressively. He hit an outstanding 41.0 percent of his outside shots and 47.4 percent from the floor while attempting 212 from long-range alone.
As if Auburn needed any more challenges, Waller's loss will make the battle to competitiveness an uphill one.
Now for the other end of the spectrum. Here's the 10 players least able to take a shot from long-range.
