The Worst Single Season Shooting Performances of the Pitino Era




Rick Pitino has coached Louisville since the 2001/02 season. A lot of players have come, a lot of players have gone. I've been interested in extreme performances lately, which brings me to the topic of this post. What players have had the worst shooting seasons in the Pitino era? To balance this out, I'll also do a best shooting performances list at a later date. I don't know who I expect to be the worst. This should be fun.

The lists are overall field goal percentage, free throw percentage and 3 point percentage. There are at least 25 players listed for every season with some probable ties. Attempts are taken into consideration. For instance, Hajj Turner was 2 for 8 in 2002. That doesn't count. A player must have attempted at least 20 shots. The year used will be the graduation year, so 2002 for the oldest season and 2014 for the current. Let's get to it.
