Rice is known as a three-point specialist.
For comparison sake, Jahvon Blair averaged the most 3-point attempts in a season under Ewing with 7.5 per game this past season.— Bobby Bancroft (@BobbyBancroft) April 18, 2021
Rice took 10.6 per game this past season, so three more than Blair.
Blair hit 35.1%, Rice made 34.5%
Rice appears to be using his fifth year of eligibility after playing four seasons with The Citadel. Again, the understanding is that, with a transferring graduate student-athlete, the new team would have to use a scholarship.
5 of 41 from 3 pt in Citadel's final 5 games (team went 2-3 in stretch), but that's fatigue, playing on an up tempo team that fired off 720 3pters in just 25 games!— Anthony Jaskulski (@AnthonyJazz) April 9, 2021
I'd love to see him in Dambrot's zone offense. Would also be a great fit with Andy Kennedy at UAB.
Rice, one of the most electric shooters in the nation, leads the nation in three-pointers made per game (3.96) among players who have competed in at least 10 games. His 91 total triples also rank second in the nation, trailing only Toledo’s Spencer Littleson (93); those 91 three-pointers put Rice in fifth place on The Citadel’s all-time single-season list in that category.
The only Bulldog to score in double digits in all 23 games this season, Rice has also logged 10 20-point games, seven of which came during SoCon action. At VMI on Jan. 16, Rice dropped a season-high 29 points and finished 7-for-10 from beyond the arc, his best three-point percentage in a single game in 2020-21.
Across his 23 games, Rice has knocked down five or more three-pointers eight different times. In the season opener against Piedmont on Nov. 25, Rice tallied nine three-pointers, tied for the fourth-most in a single game in The Citadel’s history. The senior’s 273 career three-pointers rank third all-time for the Bulldogs.
Georgetown’s roster appear to be currently north of 13 scholarships with the loss of Qudus Wahab, the presumption that Donald Carey is staying (and still counting as his fourth year of playing), and the addition of Tre King.
Unfortunately, unless some loopholes emerge, this may indicate that someone has to transfer out or decommit. Time will tell.
