Anthony averaged 21.6 points (52% FG; 82% FT), 2.3 rebounds and 5.5
assists per game. As a sophomore, he was even better at 27 points (51% FG; 82% FT), 2.5 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game. Anthony was a
tremendous 3 point shooter during that period of time before it became very popular. As a freshman he shot 60 – 144 for 42% and as a sophomore he shot 84 – 197 for 40% (he still holds the record for 3 point shots made).

player to watch and drew large crowds to home games. To this day,
