Nope. It wasn’t men’s varsity


Just like women’s varsity is an entirely different sport than mens

Are you suggesting we should reach out to Sheryl Swoops so she can voice her opinion on Clark scoring more points over 4 years in WBB and why it’s not as impressive as Pete doing it over 3 years in MBB?

He averaged 43.6 ppg and played 19 games his Freshman year. Thats another 828 points.

If they are going to say that Clark is comparable when she didn’t play Men’s varsity basketball, then they should include his Freshman year numbers as well.

It’s totally different sports so makes no sense with this Clark nonsense. Based on that, there is no legit argument on not including Pete’s freshman year.

There should be 4 records:

Men’s prior and after the 3 point line
Women’s prior and after the 3 point line

That’s it.

The ONLY thing Clark has in common with The Pistol, is underarm hair.

They don't care. They sensationalize everything. Wait until a RB breaks Eric Dickerson's rushing record in 17 games. They will celebrate without any mention of the difference. Know who has the 14 game rushing record?...OJ Simpson. Sports media (all journalists) are terrible at being objective. They just want clicks. Hence "a woman breaking Pete's record" which is impossible without Clark playing a minute men's basketball.

Are y’all really consuming yourselves wondering if Pete’s record is compromised?
Wow.

I was a kid but I remember at least half of the fans would leave after the freshman game

You’re right. I was a student and stayed in my seat at the Cow Palace through the Varsity game because I felt sorry for them. It was embarrassing.

Remember it like it was yesterday
I was living in Hodges Hall my sophomore year...a guy came in that night and said "Some guy just scored 50 points in the freshman game." I told him, that's not possible as this is LSU and we don't have very good basketball players...well...the rest is history!

They had a JV system back in the 60's Pete only played 3 years of varsity and fewer games per year than they play now.

Yep but just to note that Pete's freshman team would beat every WBB team by double digits without breaking a sweat

She has better underarm hair, but Pistol Pete had much better floppy socks….!

No. They didn’t let Freshmen play varsity. No 3 pointers either. They were not yet created.

Shot clock mattered as well.

I would say take those 3 pointers of all those other players and change them to 2 point shots. It is simple. You can then compare apples to apples.
