Sam Merrill/Wayne Estes -- Feb. 8th

Post by AggieFella » January 24th, 2020, 11:43 am

I was just doing some digging and Sam Merrill very well could pass Wayne Estes on the all-time scoring list the same night Estes scored his 2,001st and final points ... 55 years later.

He is 100 away from tying the mark with 4 games prior to the home game on the 8th vs. Boise.

Pretty cool!

I don't get too excited for this. Wayne did it in three years. Nobody will equal that.

Just because Sam did it slower does not mean it's not cool. I dont think anyone believe scoring more would make Sam better. Thanks for pointing this out. Very cool.

Fewer games per year, too.

I saw Estes score those final points. An unbelievable night. 48 points, each one needed to push him over 2000. And then, in an instant, it was over.

He got a majority of his points with 2 men on him.

Anyone know Sam’s total after last night’s game? Would be cool to keep a running tally somewhere for the rest of the year.

I would have loved to have seen him play. One of the saddest endings in Aggiedom ever. :-(

We're coming out for the Boise game so I'm hoping it happens during that game.

I don't always get to updating it right after the games as they often end after 1am local time here, but I try to keep it up to date. It's up to date right now. :)

There is about a 100% chance that this was the way I was able to respond what his total point count was earlier in this thread.

Definitely possible by Feb 8th if he scores at a bit higher clip than his current average.

Going to be tough, though, given that this Saturday is @SDSU. They'll be looking to shut him down in a big way. I suspect he will do work against UNLV at home. Hopefully those will even out for a good setup for the home game against Boise.

Oh, I know.... I've automated a lot of it, but parsing box scores into record book calculations with legacy data not backed up by box scores hasn't been high enough on my priority list to achieve. Yet.

I will be in town and in attendance at this game, so I hope it happens! Also, word is this game is already sold out. Should be a fun night.

Merill needs 42 more points to tie Wayne Estes for 3rd All-Time in scoring. He'll need a big game against UNLV to put him in contention for the Estes memorial game vs. Boise.

He's going to drop 30 vs. UNLV, because we are going to win that game by 20 - as I predicted during the debacle in Las Vegas.

He will then surpass Estes on Saturday in the first half.

Well, if it weren't for a 2-3 missed open shots by Sam, I would have been spot on. We won by 15, not 20, but I'll consider that a to be close enough to declare my Jan 1 mid-second-half prediction prophetic.

Hoping that Sam can hit the 21 point mark on Saturday.

Sam currently sits at 1979 points. Needs 21 points to eclipse 2000 on Saturday. Needs 22 points to tie Wayne Estes for 3rd All-Time in scoring at USU.
