work in progress
The 1,000 point scorers and those who scored 500 points in a season or 40 points in a game can be found elsewhere on this site.
I had been trying to compile lists of those who scored 400 points in a season or 700 in a career, but I've sort of ditched that project. So tedious. I'm still looking for those players, but I'm more interested in compiling lists of top 10 or 20 scorers for each program -- which is hard enough, but not as hard as mining the 400 and 700 players.
I think 700 is worth keeping tabs on since an average high school player will be a starter as a junior and senior. That's 350 points a year. And that's an average of 16 ppg if the team (on a 22-game schedule) doesn't make the playoffs.
One of the problems is the old newspapers site I subscribe to aren't available for all the years, especially from 1995ish-2010. And I don't want to go to the library and hog the little microfilm room it has because this work is time consuming.
Bottom line: I'm reworking these pages.
(Anyone who can think of players who fill the bill, don't hesitate to contact me at email@example.com.)
Other little tidbits are included here, too -- not to mention an evolution of various scoring records.
UPDATE 6.1.23 -- I'm trying to collect 600-point season scorers for girls in the pre-winter 'modern era' (early 1970s-early 1980s). They played very abbreviated schedules.
