With the NCAA season over, and the NBA Draft on deck, there is one player that you should know about but probably have never heard of: John Grotberg.
Grotberg scores more times than you blink in a minute. Playing in Grinnell College’s up-tempo system of substituting every 35 seconds, he set the NCAA record, regardless of level, for career 3-pointers with 526 this season. He led the nation and conference in scoring (31.0 points per game) and 3-pointers per game (6.2) this season, and led the MWC in steals per game (3.3), a category in which he ranked seventh nationally. Grotberg also was among the league leaders in free throw percentage at 86.8 percent.
“I got a quick trigger,” says Grotberg. “I think sometimes people tend to underestimate the D-3 player, but I have a fair amount of range and relatively decent size for a point guard. I don’t see myself as other players do.”
