New, 3 comments

Fox Sports writer Jeff Goodman unveiled his list of the top 50 shooters in the coutry. Five Big 12ers made the cut, including a pair of Oklahoma State sharpshooters.

12. James Anderson, 6-6, 205, SG, Jr., Oklahoma State: He has a career percentage of .394 from beyond the arc (151-of-383) and shot 40.8 percent last season. He also shot 82.9 percent from the charity stripe last season. He has hit six 3-pointers on three occasions in his two-year career.

"James is the best catch-and-shoot player I've ever coached. He's got tremendous range with little effort and a very quick release. He has great form, great follow through. He's a true jump shooter, not a set shooter." — Oklahoma State coach Travis Ford

24. LaceDarius Dunn, 6-4, 195, SG, Jr., Baylor: He set the school's single-season mark for 3-pointers made (109) and attempts (281) last season and also hit nine trifectas at Kansas State. He has made seven or more threes on three different occasions and has a career 3-point field goal percentage of .399.

"Lace was born a great shooter. In fact, he made his first 3-pointer from the crib. What has made him such a great shooter is great mechanics and countless hours in the gym. He has beyond NBA range and consistently shoots with great accuracy." — Baylor coach Scott Drew

25. Willie Warren, 6-3, 205, SG, Soph., Oklahoma: He can be somewhat streaky, but he has big-time range and is fearless. He shot .372 (67-of-180) as a freshman last season for the Sooners.

"He put on a clinic against us. It was a joke. The thing that makes Willie Warren so tough is his explosiveness off the bounce for a player his size. If he's making the 3-point shot, like he can do, it's almost like you pick your poison." — Arkansas coach John Pelphrey

30. Keiton Page, 5-9, 170, G, Soph., Oklahoma State: He made 63-of-158 (.399) from deep as a freshman last season.

"He has great technique, works at it and has a shooter's mentality. People questioned whether he would be effective at this level being that he's small and played in Class A here in Oklahoma, but when you can shoot the ball like he can and have the heart and savvy that he has, there's a place for you." — Oklahoma coach Jeff Capel

49. Lucca Staiger, 6-5, 220, G, Jr., Iowa State: After not being allowed to play by the NCAA two years ago, the German wing was 74-of-192 (.375) last season from beyond the arc.

"He really has a great feel on how to play off (Craig) Brackins and thinks he can make every shot." — Nebraska coach Doc Sadler
