The 2 full season Leon Powe played at Cal, he shot 49% from the floor. (I will take that from any player)...
To say he was taking bad shots left and right, if so, not easy so do that and shoot 49% for your career. Being a leading point scorer, he averaged 12 shots per game for his career. As point of reference, this year's top 2 scorers, Crabbe and Cobb combined are averaging 12 shots each per game.
The leading scorers on the team (or best scorers) have to take the most shots...that is kinda how it works.
Powe's stat line at Cal: 17.8 ppg, 9.8 rpg, and 49% fgp.
His last year, he averaged a double double for the season, after having to sit out a season due to injury.
Look at Powe’s Sr season, his stat line of: 20.5/10.1/50%, is up there with some of the best Cal big men’s season of all time… the only other player in the history of Cal Basketball who averaged a double/double for points/rebounds in a season is Mark McNamara who in his Sr season stat line was 22/12.6/70%
