By now, you ought to be effectively conscious of the set of actively updating Marquette Golden Eagles athletics statistic leaderboards that we hold right here at Nameless Eagle. If not, I have conveniently created this link so that you can go have a look at them. As we inch nearer to the (theoretical) begin of the 2020-21 Marquette basketball seasons, a part of preseason prep work needs to be resetting these stat charts that apply for the upcoming season.
After which I spotted: Hey, wait a minute. Do I really want to try this? What number of guys on Marquette’s lively roster are wherever close to any all-time information or high 10 lists?
That made me ask a query: Wait, who’re Marquette’s lively stat leaders?
So, I put collectively a Google Sheet. You can go look at it if you want, however I snapped it collectively shortly in a couple of minutes simply to have the ability to have a look at everybody’s profession totals in a fast method with out having to flip backwards and forwards between screens. I’m going to simply provide the profession leaders in each division in a second right here, however I need to cease off and level out one thing that I hadn’t truly realized till I pulled up the Marquette Basketball Reference web page for the 2019-20 season to make it possible for I grabbed everybody who was getting back from final season.
Did y’all understand that there are solely 5 scholarship gamers on Steve Wojciechowski’s roster who’ve been in a Marquette uniform and in a recreation earlier than proper this second while you learn this?
Dexter Akanno redshirted final 12 months. D.J. Carton and Jose Perez transferred on this summer time. Dawson Garcia, Oso Ighodaro, and Justin Lewis are freshmen. Two scholarship spots are sitting open. That’s 13 spots.
ANYWAY, onwards to the purpose of the train, which is definitely solely going to attract this into additional focus. Simply so we’re clear: That is Marquette stats solely, so Koby McEwen’s numbers from Utah State don’t depend.

No, significantly, Theo John is an lively stat chief god, together with reigning as Marquette’s lively scoring chief. McEwen has 276, Cain has 361, Elliott has 279, Torrence has 49. In reality, I skipped a deliberate two-point capturing part as a result of it’s simply repeating the common subject objective stats a second time as a result of John has by no means tried a three-pointer, so clearly his two-point stats are the very best on the group proper now.
When it comes to profession high 10 numbers in program historical past, the one one which we have to keep watch over this season is Theo John’s blocks. He’s currently holding onto the #5 spot in program history with 151 swats and might simply scoot as much as #2 all time if Marquette performs a 25 recreation season. Luke Fischer is fourth at 153, Faisal Abraham is third at 172, and Amal McCaskill is second with 175. John by no means had a shot to get to Jim McIlvaine’s program report of 399 profession blocks, so it’s not just like the COVID shortened season goes to harm him there.
There’s one different factor to level out that isn’t in one of many stat charts that we monitor. Koby McEwen is already in line to finish up as one of the crucial correct free throw shooters in program historical past. His mark of 85.1% can be the fourth greatest capturing proportion in program historical past, however he’s at the moment 86 makes an attempt wanting the minimal that MU put in to have that one make sense. McEwen shot 114 freebies a 12 months in the past, so it appears cheap to assume that he might simply get one other 86 if MU will get sufficient video games performed. Then once more, he solely tried two free throws in Marquette’s last 4 video games of the season final 12 months and didn’t have an offensive score above 90 in MU’s last six contests, so who is aware of what to anticipate from him this coming 12 months.
