HBCU Scoop: A Look at James Daniel III

The Howard University Senior led all scorers last season and you probably didn’t know it.

WASHINGTON, D.C. --Who was the leading scorer last year? Grayson Allen? No. Melo Trimble? No. Buddy Hield? Nope. None of these people lead in scoring last was James Daniel III. You read that right. You just read the name of a guy you probably never even heard of, but it is time to get to know him. Let’s take a look at the senior point guard from Howard.

Standing at 5’11, Daniel has an impressive resume for his junior campaign. He performed very well despite being overlooked by mostly everyone in the country. The Virginia native even dropped 38 points in their 92-91 loss against Radford last season, the same team that beat Georgetown in their season opener. His spectacular performance last season led Daniel to lead all Division I players in scoring, averaging 27.1 points per game. Along with that, he led all players in free throw attempts with 331, making 280 of them.
