The point that AntiUngvar fails to address is that the ranking was about shooters, not three point shooters.

https://watchstadium.com/news/jeff-goodman-ran ks-t...

Cannady's career shooting numbers (FG% / 3PT% / FT%) are 45.1/41.9/90.4 Adlesh's career numbers are at 44.6/42.4/65.8.

Free throw shooting is a huge part of being considered a great shooter, and Cannady's >90% FT rate is fantastic. Adlesh, who has never shot over 70% in a season, is not a very good free throw shooter. So he was never a serious consideration for the "Top 30 Shooter" list.

You're right about that, WC. Another thing I failed to address was head to head matchups- or at last what the two did when their teams have already met. I'm just glad this whole subject won't die; and frankly that's not all due to me. In fact, we'll probably be hearing from that dark cloud in PA any moment now.

I, for one, am REALLY enjoying this conversation.

Indeed, I'm glad you are, SM, & now the the cloud has passed, WC, let me mention that the Columbia and Princeton men played their normal home and home games last season (Jan. 12 at Princeton and Feb. 17 at Columbia), with each school team winning on its home courts.
Overall, Adlesh shot 12 of 21 from the field (.571);
while Cannady shot 10 of 23 (,435);
from outside the arc, Adlesh shot 7 of 11 (.636);
while Cannady made 4 of 12 (.333);
Adlesh missed both of his free throws in these two Princeton games (.000);
while Cannady converted all four of his FTAs, (1.000). SO in these two matchups, Columbia versus Princeton last season and over the course of the entire 2017-18 season, Canada was the better free throw shooter. In other aspects of outside shooting, Adlesh did enough in these two games and in al of last season to demonstrate that he, at very least, belongs in the conversation with Cannady- in fact, he more than held his own.
P.S.: They'll both be at Madison Square Garden on December 9th, when Columbia plays Iona and Princeton faces St. John's in the Holiday Festival tournament- we can certainly pick this up then.
