Feel free to fact check me, but based on my research Jordan Bone is the ONLY player in the country with these numbers or better...

The only player I found that is pretty close is Michigan State’s Cassius Winston who was just named to the 25 player mid-season Wooden Award Watch List, his line...

Funny that just a few games ago some were posting he couldn't shoot. I thought he was going to be special just watching his high school clips. First step and speed to the glass were phenomenal even then.

Bone has stepped his game way up, no doubt. Him and Alexander have taken this team to the next level compared to last year. Bowden and fulkerson have shown improvements in their game too. I havent seen it from Johnson or walker yet unfortunately, and pons is still very hit or miss (albeit more hits than last year). Pons really needs to work on his 15 to 22 foot shooting and hed be deadly.

I also believe, in looking at these numbers, that we have to look at the fact that Bone has really just come into his own, these last 8 games or so. My belief is that his 3-point percentage and overall FG PERCENTAGE is increasing, and his confidence is at an all-time high. These numbers will continue to increase, in my opinion. Go Vols.

I remember him taking the loss against Loyola last year really hard and basically saying he wasn’t going to let that happen again. Seems he’s put in the work and calling his own shot because if Grant and Admiral are PB&J he’s the bread for sure.

I was always one of Bone's biggest critics on this board and despite my tendency to overreact during games, his play usually justified the ridicule.....until this season. I can't praise him enough for the maturity and decision making he's shown. Seeing him blossom into an All-SEC caliber PG is what makes college basketball so great.

Everybody likes the Bone. He has really blossomed. He and Alexander are tearing it up.

This team is exciting. I watch games, can relax and watch the players away from the ball because I know we are going to win. It is much better than following the b-ball watching for turnovers.
