sooooo those stat's that the sun printed about peck are completely false.

how do you make that mistake? that's really bad.

ski led the team with 14.2 ppg and peck had 11 ppg.

come on cornell daily sun.


i'm not saying peck doesn't deserve to be on the list because HE ABSOLUTELY DOES. i'm just saying how do you get something as easy to look up as stats wrong.

I don't have the energy to check, but they did specify that those stats were "over the final 22 games" so maybe over that time they're right.

At least according to ESPN stats it is wrong regardless. Peck didn't play the last game. So if you do team 22 games (so 21 of Peck's games) thats an average of 12.95ppg. If you do Peck's 22 games, that's 12.45ppg.

And, if you sort his scores, and average the top 21 games, he's got an average of 13.3. Who knows what the Sun did with their math.
