Men’s Basketball Record Watch

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jon Green @ 6:35 pm

In the records watch, Michael Jenkins (1379 career points) is still at #5 all time.  Up next on the charts is #4 (Mike Simons with 1387) and then probably #3 (Pihl Cartwright with 1457).  Michael needs to average just 9 points per game to reach #3 in the regular season.  Assuming 3 Post season games and his current average, Michael will end up with 1578.  #2 is Dennis Forrest with 1660 and #1 is Dean Thompson Jr. with 1816. He has already climbed as high as 5th place in Career 3’s with 144 and is on pace to finish with 163. He has 386 career field goals, and should enter the top 20 list soon.  He is projected to finish with 428, good for 14th all time.  His 217 career assists ranks in a tie for 13th, and he is projected to finish the year with 253, good for 11th alltime.  His 102 steals now is tied for 14th place, and he is projected to finish with 121, good for a tie for 9th all time.  He’s the all time leader in FTs attempted (463) and FTs made (547).  He’s projected to end up with 547 of 648. He has 101 games played, and with a 3 game post season would reach the top 10 in that catergory with 113). He’s also started 77 career games, 9th all time, and is projected to reach 89, good for 3rd most all time, with a 3 games post season.  His 2683 minutes is good for 9th all time, and he’s projected to finish with 3050, good for 5th all time.  Basically, he’s going to be all over the Career record books.  One of the all-time bests. 

 

This year Michael is on pace for 497 points, good for 13th all time.  Michael is also on pace for 47 3-pointers, tied for 17th best in school history.

 

Andrew Bridger (667 career points) has a good shot at joining the 1000 point list.  He is projected to end his junior season with 808 points.  Andrew Bridger now has 100 career 3’s, only the 10th Maverick to hit that many in a career, and is projected to finish the season with 123, 8th all time.  He’s on pace to finish with 180, the 5th most of all time.  He could reach the top 3, Dan Morrow is currently #3 with 186) and will go down as one of the best 3 point shooters in UNO history. He’s also already reached #10 on the all time assists list, with 269, and is projected to end the year with 323, 7th all time.  He’s projected to end his career with 458 (3rd all time behind Derrick Jackson’s 463 and just ahead of Dean Thompson Jr.’s 447).  Bridger’s 108 career steals ranks him 11th all time.  He’s projected to end the year with 135 steals, good for 8th of all time.  He’s projected to end his career with 203, good for the all time career lead. He needs to average 2 per game to reach 192 and top Calvin Kapels’ 191. Andrew will also go into the books as one of the best players in UNO history.

 

This year Andrew is on pace for 57 3-pointers, tied for the 10th best season in school history. He’s on pace for 135 assists, the 8th highest single season total in history. He’s on pace for 68 steals, the 2nd most in school history.  

 

Mitch Albers now has 671 career points, now the 2nd most points by an active player, and is projected to finish his sophomore season with 873. He should easily become the 31st Maverick to score 1000 points sometime next year.  He’s on pace for 503 points this year, good for 11th best in school history. He’s on pace for 198 field goals, the 9th best in school history. Mitch is on pace for 47 3-pointers, tied for 17th best in school history.

 

Mitch might also see himself high on Career Field Goals Chart, currently projected to finish #2 all time on that list, the 3 Point Career Field Goal Chart, (currently tied for 17th with 76 and on pace for 169 and a 5th place finish).  Again, one of the best in school history.

 

I think we’ve got 3 of the best players in school history together right now. 5 more home games.  Don’t miss them!
