For all the hype surrounding college basketball’s best rainmakers like Marquette’s Marcus Howard, you won’t find the sport’s most explosive scorer this season draining threes in the Big East. Try a 6’1” guard from Division III Gordon College (Massachusetts) named Eric Demers. The senior has been a scoring machine this season averaging more than 33 points per game. Not only is Demers the nation’s leading scorer at any collegiate level, but he will also become just the sixth player this century to average 33 or more points per game in an entire season. SI’s John Walters chronicles Demers’ journey to the record books and his basketball future.
