Kolek vs Tony Miller Assist Record
« on: January 26, 2023, 09:59:44 AM »
Is anyone tracking Kolek's chances of breaking Tony's record? If Kolek stays four years I think he could actually do it and that seemed like the most untouchable, non McIlvaine, record that MU has.

Markus Howard's scoring record.  Unless seasons continue to get longer (more games) and/or more worldwide pandemics hit and give players extra years of eligibility.

I should've specified that I meant long standing record. I agree that was a very special set of long leash, & skilled player not having NBA body.

Kolek has 353 Marquette assists (and another 50 from his time at George Mason).  He had 188 last year and has 165 so far.  There's about a third of the season left, so maybe he gets another 100 to reach a total of about 450 through two years.

Miller had 956.

That's within range, assuming he stays healthy and continues to get about 250 assists per season.  Playing more games in March can only help.  My guess is he is chasing that record in the early spring of '25, but wouldn't crack it until the Big East tourney or later.

I recently suggested that Kolek had a shot and then looked at the numbers.  Miller’s record is likely safe forever.  It’s amazing how many assists he had.  Kolek certainly can get to second place but it’s highly unlikely he can pass him.  TK can score a lot more than Tony which is a huge difference.

Tony Miller was a huge part of the rebirth of the program under KO.  Very underrated.  Pure PG.

Thanks for this link. A lot of really interesting stuff on there. Amazing that three guys from the same recruiting class are three of top four in minutes played in the program's history. Those guys were awesome.

Kolek is projected to get 260 assists this regular season. Tony's record is 274. With the BET and NCAA to assure at least two more games, he can break or tie it.

Career-wise, Kolek would project to have 896+. With post season runs, he could conceivably beat 956 if he stays those last two years, barring injury. Will depend on the post season runs.

I'll bet Miller keeps the assist record and Kolek wins more games in the NCAA.

I think Kolek will leave as Marquette's all-time assist leader if he is healthy and takes the COVID year. If he gets better between now and then, he may leave with Hurley's record too.

The way this offense is set up is tailor made for someone like Kolek. As long as he's willing to defer and they surround him with people could finish, he could really put up some crazy numbers.
When asked how he felt about Marquette being picked to finish ninth in the Big East, Tyler Kolek only had two words:

"F**k 'em."

If he does the latter, he will break the former.

As much I as I love Kolek, I hope he is doing something far bigger than playing at MU two years down the road. I was basing my comments off on additional season, not two.

Ok. I was basing my assessment that he will stay, as he stated in the podcast.

When Shaka said TK has two more years of eligibility after this, felt like a good indicator he'd be here for both.

Kolek only has a chance to beat Miller, if MU stops losing the first games in Big East tournament and NCAA tournament.

Amazing that Lazar is the all-time leader in offensive rebounds and also defensive rebounds, but still trails Don Kojis in total rebounds…

I’m probably going to regret asking this because I’m sure it’s obvious and I’m just not thinking enough, but what other kinds of rebounds are there?  How is Lazar not in 1st place in total rebounds if he’s got the most offensive and defensive rebounds?

Maybe they didn’t track offensive or defensive rebounds and simply had a single “rebound” stat. The Warrior fans will have to confirm or deny.

That would help, but it's not true. He's on pace for 259 this year if we play 33 games (1 BET, 1 NCAA/NIT). If he were to play two more 33-game seasons at that same average, he would pass Miller as a senior with a couple games to spare.

That's why Kolek has a legitimate shot at Hurley's career record. If TK keeps this same exact average for 2 more years, he would finish at 1,015 assists, just 61 shy of Hurley's all-time NCAA record. That's with ZERO postseason wins.

But if he improved his game or did win some postseason games? He could fly by that career number.

Did you include the 50 from his time at George Mason in that calculation?

I think the COVID year is going to put a lot of records in jeopardy.  We've already seen the guy from Detroit Mercy jump into second on the points list behind Pistol Pete.

If they had given Markus a COVID year he might have had a shot at Maravich too.  Just seems unfair

When it comes to the Marquette record, I don't factor his GMU assists, but when it comes to Hurley's record, absolutely.

Miller's best season was 274 assists.
Kolek 33 games @ 8 per game=264

Kolek had 188 assists his first year at MU. Miller had 221+215+274+248. It may be possible, but I believe Kolek will not beat best season or total assists records without post season wins.

What happens, if Kolek plays four years at MU? Currently he listed as having 188 assists as a sophomore. Does his first year get changed to freshmen stats or is going to have two senior stats?
