MMPG - Breaking Battle: Can Lamar Stevens Become Penn State’s All-Time Leading Scorer?

New, 29 comments

With Lamar Stevens eclipsing the 2,000 career points mark, can he possibly break Talor Battle’s school record?

NCAA Basketball: Ohio State at Penn State Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Super Monday! In case you missed it over the weekend, Lamar Stevens eclipsed 2,000 career points in the basketball team’s Saturday night victory at Nebraska. This makes Lamar only the third player in school history to ever do so, joining only Talor Battle and Jesse Arnelle in such elite company.

The Nittany Lions still have at the very least, 12 games remaining (ten regular season, one Big Ten Tournament game, and one likely NCAA Tournament game) and with Lamar currently sitting at 2,007 career points while currently averaging 16.5 points per game, he is on track to surpass Arnelle’s 2,138 points, as he would only need to average 10.9 ppg over the next dozen games in order to do so.

Breaking Talor Battle’s school record of 2,213 points however, will require Lamar to step up his scoring average to 17.1 ppg over the next dozen games. This brings us to our question for you, Dear Reader: Will Lamar Stevens surpass Battle to become PSU’s all-time career scoring leader? Give us your thoughts in the comments, below.
