For those of you keeping score at home, Jacob Pullen currently has 1,939 career points, which is good for second on the all-time list. Mike Evans, the career scoring leader, currently sits at 2,115. For those of you without quick access to a calculator, that means that Jake currently trails him by 176 points.
If Jacob Pullen wants to leave Kansas State as the career scoring leader, he must score 177 points. With five games left in the regular season, it's nearly impossible for him to pass Evans unless the team gets to the postseason.
Therefore, I've broken down the average points per game Jake would need to score if KSU were to play X number of games for the remainder of the year. Realistically, KSU needs to play at least nine more games for him to pass Mike Evans, and that's even with Jake scoring around 20 points per game. Ten games is more realistic given his current average.
So, for those of you who are interested in the breakdown, here you go. The deeper we go in the 'tournament' (whichever it may be), the more likely he is to leave Kansas State as it's career scoring leader. So, as it's been for the entirety of the year, the individual successes of Jacob Pullen are inexorably tied to the team's success as a whole.
The minimum number of games is seven (5 regular season + 1 Big 12 Tournament + 1 postseason tournament).
The maximum number of games is fifteen (5 regular season + 4 Big 12 Tournament + 6 postseason tournament).
