Josh Adams Chases Wyoming’s Single-Season Scoring Record
University of Wyoming guard Josh Adams is having a historic season. The senior is the fifth highest scorer in the country, averaging 25.1 points per game. His seven 30-point games is tied for second in the nation, just behind Oklahoma All-American Buddy Hield.
If the season were to end today, Adams would have the fourth highest single-season scoring average in Wyoming history.
The record is held by Flynn Robinson, who paced the 1964-65 Pokes with 27 points per game. Robinson also holds the second and third highest single-season averages in school history, scoring 26.2 points a game in 1962-63 and averaging 25.5 in the 1963-64 season.
Adams has shown consistent improvement since enrolling at Wyoming in 2012. He averaged 6.6 points in his freshman season. As a sophomore, his average jumped to 12.7 points per game. Last year, Adams was named the Mountain West Conference Tournament Most Valuable Player, averaging 12.8 points per game.
His 1,607 career points currently ranks seventh on UW's all-time scoring list. Barring injury, Adams is likely to move into the top five before the season's end. He is also on pace to become the first Wyoming player to ever be named Mountain West Conference Player of the Year.
