Lorenzo Sutton, Monty, Ricky Harris, Carmelo, Carl Smith, James Jimmy, Hempel, Trey Davis, Jim McCoy, Tony Barbee?

How about tallest and shortest players ever?

I can't get 10, but have to think these are on the list: Monty Mack, Ricky Harris and Carmelo Travieso. Maybe also others in the great teams Travieso was on, like Padilla or Derrick Kellogg? Have to think the 2 fine shooters on the current team: Pipkins and Pierre. Forget the extra credit, I'd be happy to above half on the base question.
Both good guesses.
Floyd has Sutton right (3rd and 6th best seasons), Monty (2nd, 5th and 9th), Ricky (7th and 8th), and Carmelo (4th). The two remaining do not include Smith, Life, Hempel, Davis, McCoy or Barbee.

Bobolink has Mack, Harris and Travieso. Also got Pipkins right, who is first (although could slip with two more years left). Pierre isn't in the top 10 (12th), but could move up. No on Padilla and Kellogg.

So there's one player remaining who has the 10th best season for 3-pt per game production.

R&G gets the bronze. Anderson is the last one. Anderson also has the 15th, 16th and 17th best seasons. Amazingly consistent over his four years.

That went too fast. Have to make my questions harder.

Who is the oldest UMass guy still playing professionally?

^ Excellent guess! Who knows?

My guess is AA, who is still on the roster of the Moncton Magic of the National Basketball League of Canada. Class of 2000 from Lynn English.

Since we're low on hoops news and trivia has been coming into play, how about best nicknames for UMass players

^^ Not that it matters, but for the record, Julius was not known as the Doctor until after he left UMass.
