The Top 50 Scorers in College Basketball Today

It's an exciting time for college basketball. Teams and fans use the holiday break to take stock and cram in another cupcake or two before plunging into the meat of their conference schedules. And while the second half of the season is certainly more enlightening than the first, there's already plenty to know. 

For instance, we have a pretty good idea of who some of the great scorers are.  Some are a surprise, some not at all, some have blue-blood pedigree, some are cast-offs and erstwhile afterthoughts. 

What follows is a sketch of the nation's top 50 in this category. To put this together, I looked at scoring and shooting averages along with caliber of opponents and other contextual matters.

I then took it a step further by including true shooting percentage, which helps measure offensive efficiency; if you're interested, the formula is Total Points / [2 * (FGA + 0.44 * FTA)]. I used the TS percentage rankings provided by the Web site Draft Express.

Please enjoy.  And if I riled you up with a particular inclusion or omission, have at me in the comments.
