IMO KC Rivers was the best I've seen in my time watching

Clemson basketball (basically Rick Barnes era onward) though you could probably make a good case for Oglesby as well.
Solomon was 36.6% for his career which was quite a bit lower than Rivers (38.5%) and Oglesby (39.5%). Ed Scott had a good SR year shooting over 36%, but was only 31.3% for his career. Scott and Solomon were both high volume, inefficient offensive players - largely out of necessity because their supporting casts were garbage.
Devoe is only 34.6% for his career, but is having one of the better shooting seasons of any Clemson player i can remember sitting at 40% from 3 and an eFG% of 56.4%.
he was a JUCO transfer but started from Day 1 and could shoot or penetrate... what a point guard needed to be. Vince Hamilton didn't have the 3 Pt shot in his era, but as a 2 guard, he was a career 50% FG shooter, and his range was definitely 3 Pt range. My only wish is that he could have had the 3 Pt line to really judge his proficiency. Billy Williams is another that didn't have the 3 Pt line but was a careet 50% shooter as a 2 guard. With that in mind, I have to drop Michael Tait second to Chris Whitney.
Clemson has had some bombers come through but some didn't stay with the program: Michael Best, Michael Brown are two that I saw play but didn't balance student and athletic life...
.. the % but was not a big scorer. I remember David Young could stroke it. Jurkunas had a great freshman streak with 3s but stank it up after that. For his size, McIntyre not only hit open 3s, but create some space and elevate when he got hot. Whitney was more of a point guard that could also hit the three ball. I gotta say on just the 3-point ball, Oglesby was the man.
