Just read a claim on Mason’s board that MSS’ dad wanted him to transfer after his freshman season here due to lack of playing time. Does anyone else remember hearing anything like that?
Well, a lot of us were questioning the direction of the program after MR's first year. In retrospect, not judging after one year was a wise decision.

I was looking through VCU’s advanced metrics for the last 10 seasons including this year.

MSS‘s 2018-18 season ranked the following out of all players logging 20mpg or more:
TS% 7th at .599
eFG% 3rd at .594
PER 3rd at 26.4
WS/40 1st at .247
PProd 10th at 442

It definitely ranked as one of the top 10 seasons statistically for a VCU player that decade. Possibly top 5.

This year his numbers are comparable:
TS% .593 (would give him 2 of the top 11 this decade)
eFG% .594 (would give him 2 of the top 4 this decade)
PER 27.2 (would give him 2 of the top 4 this decade)
WS/40 .236 (would give him 2 of the top 3 this decade)
PProd (not worth looking at until the season is over)
