Surprise! College basketball's most efficient scorer is Derrick Williams of Arizona, not Jimmer Fredette of BYU. In fact, Fredette is more than 10 points behind Williams' 131.5 rating.
You might ask how a relatively unknown forward at Arizona is the nation's "best" scorer. Well its a combination of things Williams does so well that makes him almost unstoppable when he has the ball.
First and foremost, he has an unmatched ability to get close to the basketball and either draw a foul (he leads the nation in free throw attempts) or lay the ball in the hoop. He also is one of the most electrifying dunkers in country.
Williams averages about 20 points a game to go with seven and a half rebounds. The scariest part about his game is his ability to knock down three pointers. Following Arizona's loss to Washington, Williams has made 18 of 26 three pointers. That's almost .700 percent from behind the arc.
His biggest weakness is foul trouble, something that cost Arizona a chance to beat both Kansas and most recently Washington.
If Williams stays in college to the delight of many Wildcat fans, he will only become more of a dominating force in the college basketball world.
