2017-18 Milestones

Postby Commissioner » Sun Oct 29, 2017 9:43 pm

Here are some potential individual milestones for Titans this year:

Jaleel Hogan
... needs 55 points to become the 41st Titan to score 1000 points in his career. He'll probably reach that on the road in Nashville or St. Louis. Hogan needs 501 points this year (15.6 pg, if he plays 32 games; last year he averaged 15.2) to tie Dorie Murrey for 15th on the Titans all-time scoring list. (Of course, Murrey did it in three years, 77 games. Hogan has already played over 90 games.) Hogan needs 653 points (20.4 ppg) to tie Dwayne Kelley for 10th place.

... needs 25 blocks to crack the Titans' career top 10 (last year he blocked 31). That would tie him with Jerry Davis. His 26th block would tie him with Alan Renner-Thomas for 9th. Eighth place Stacey Johnson is probably out of reach.

... currently ranks 2nd all time in Titan career FG percentage at 58.9%. Eli Holman is first at 60.9%, and Jaleel would have to shoot about 65% to challenge him for the top spot. If he makes about 56% or better he should hold his current position ahead of Clarence McNatt (58.0%).

... already has the 6th best season for FG %, at 59.1% last year. The record is 63.7% by Ryvon Covile. Hogan hit over 60% as a freshman but didn't have enough attempts to qualify. The 10th spot on the Titan single season best list is held by McNatt at 58.1% in 1983.

... will be trying to become the first Titan to lead the league in FG % since Holman in 2011.

... will probably crack the top 10 in career free throw attempts, but won't be close in free throws made. :cry:

... needs to be called for just 47 fouls to tie Kevin McAdoo for the most by a Titan. Will he crack that dubious record in the non-conference season?

Josh McFolley
... will crack the career top 10 for free throw percentage if he shoots the same from the line as he did last year (81.3% in 107 attempts). Josh's 62 steals last year were the 6th most ever for a Titan in a single season. If he does that again this year, he'll move into 5th place on the Titans' all-time list, behind 4th place Ray McCallum and ahead of John Long and Terry Tyler, who are currently tied for 5th. The single season Titan record is 80 by Roy "Sleepy" Simms.

... will try to become the first Titan to lead the MCC/Horizon in steals twice. The only other Titans to lead the league are Simms and McCallum.

... should crack the career Top 10 for 3 point FGs made late in the non-conference season. He probably won't pass up Jon Goode for 5th place on the Titans' career list, but probably will pass Greg Grays and Jason Calliste, currently tied for 6th.

Corey Allen

... Is currently the Titans' leader for career three point FG% (44.8% in 174 attempts--170 attempts are required to qualify).. Depending on the number of attempts he makes, he'll have to hit something over 40% to hold his lead over Archie Tullos.

... had the second best single season percentage for a Titan last year, behind Tullos's 48.1% in 1987. Tenth on the list are Rashad Phillips (2001) and Jon Goode (2006) at 41.5%. What would Sweet Due have shot?

... will try to become just the third Titan to lead the MCC/Horizon in 3 point FG%. The others are Tullos (1987) and Patrick Robinson, last year. Note that the Horizon and the Titans' have different numbers of required attempts to qualify--so while Robinson led the league in 3 point shooting last year, Allen led the Titans.

... will try to match Paris Bass and Ray McCallum by going from Horizon Freshman of the Year to First Team All-Conference.

Gerald Blackshear

... shot 61.3% from the field last year in 119 attempts. You need 125 attempts to qualify for single season leaders. If he can hit that in 6 more attempts, that will be the 4th highest single season percentage in Titan history.

Jermaine Jackson and Jack Ballantyne

... will try to make it 5 years straight that a Titan has made the All-Freshman team (Jarod Williams, Paris Bass, Josh McFolley, Corey Allen).
