Den2k?


I think we all agree with father-to-be Bill C's assessment of Marcus, in that we wish he had ~1% more Clarence Gilbert in him. Just one LESS mental filter when it came to shooting. But 1000 points in a career is nothing to sneeze at, and I'm glad his success came in a Tigers uni.

I made a throwaway joke during the game thread the other day about Marcus getting to 2,000 points. Bill C replied, in the course of the game, that he would certainly need to average 20pts a game from here on out to even get close. But, mentally, I couldn't shake the feeling that I HAD to know how much he needed. 

(Warning: public school graduate attempting Windows Calculator math and Notepad transcription... Warning!)

According to MUTigers.com (and math), I put Marcus on 1031 points for his career, meaning he needs 969 points to reach 2000. (whew.)

I made some calculations based on differing levels of Tiger success in the 4 post season tourneys they will (hopefully) be involved in:

4 2011 games remaining, 1 BXII, 1 NCAA, 31 game 2012 sched, 1 BXII = 38 games

-25.5pts/game


4 2011 games remaining, 2 BXII, 2 NCAA, 31 game 2012 sched, 2 BXII, 2 NCAA = 43 games

-22.6pts/game


4 2011 games remaining, 3 BXII, 3 NCAA, 31 game 2012 sched, 3 BXII, 4 NCAA = 48 games 

-20.2pts/game

So... It's not PURE fantasy to think he could make a run at it. Just a quick thought experiment.
