Powell has never done that for a full season. 10 games isn’t a big enough sample size IMO. In a full season he shot 38%. Which is solid, but a very far cry from 45%. I’d venture not many players shoot 45% from three over a full season. In fact, only two guys did it last year.
I really hope Justin Powell finds a place where he can excel. I think the talent is there to be a good SEC player but he was lacking in confidence and never found his grove at UT. I think Barnes gave him opportunities. Hard to believe a guy that had been projected as a Second Round NBA draft prospect in 2022 is now struggling to find a spot to play. Having to possibly sit out a year and his history of transferring is probably making some teams extra cautious.
