We knew this year’s mass exodus was a big one, but Gary Parrish over at CBSSports.com has now crunched the numbers to quantify just how big it really is.
According to Parrish’s new story and mathematics, Kentucky will lose 80.8 points per game with the departures of De’Aaron Fox, Malik Monk, Isaiah Briscoe, Bam Adebayo, Derek Willis, Dominique Hawkins, Mychal Mulder and Isaac Humphries. (Whew, that was a lot to type.) There were 324 teams that didn’t even score 80.8 points per game this past season.
The leading returners in the scoring column are Wenyen Gabriel with a 4.6 average across 38 games and Sacha Killeya-Jones’ 2.7 points in 15 games.
That. Is. Insane.
