Jeff Beverly is truly, as Matt Campbell would put it, the “unsung hero” of our men’s basketball team. Beverly has made three prior stops before coming to Ames, whereas Trae Young (in a similar manner to former WRNL writer Aaron Marner has never left Ames) has never left Norman. Anyways, allow me to get into some in-depth analysis.
To start, the tweet that inspired this article.
Trae Young 3PT%: 36.6— Jared Larson (@Jar_Lar) February 24, 2018
Jeff Beverly 3PT% as a freshman: 41.3
Beverly > Young https://t.co/wnnHN8KcqM
Trae Young, as of this writing, has never hit exactly 100% from the field whereas Beverly has done it twice this season, against Kansas and West Virginia. Point: Beverly
Remember back when Beverly had himself a game against UNI? That is also the most recent time he ever fouled out of a game. Young, on the other hand, has never fouled out of a game. :thinking emoji:
To close with one last important stat, Beverly has 44 wins in his college career, and as of this typing, Trae only has 27 wins. One player should be a lottery pick, and the other is Trae Young.
As nice as words are at describing things, I have included two photo arguments below to see who is better at both shooting form and shoe game.
Shooting Form Comparison:
Winner: Jeff Beverly has a much purer shot stroke than Young, and should be commended for such a pure finish.
Shoe Game Comparison:
Winner: Trae Young easily beats Beverly’s black kicks.
