While Devonte’ Graham may be making a move for the top five, Brannen Greene is making a move for number one.

The sophomore sharp-shooter is currently ninth in the nation in 3-point field goal percentage, and has a decent shot at taking over the top spot at season’s end.

Greene has connected on 29-of-57 attempts behind the arc, good enough for a .509 shooting percentage.

Derrick Marks of Boise St. currently leads the country with a .547 percentage from three, while hitting 47-of-86 attempts.

Greene has been especially on target during road games this year. He has made 75 percent of his 3-point attempts, connecting on 12-of-16.

To put in to perspective how close Greene is to being the most accurate 3-point shooter in the country, had he made just three of his 28 misses this year, the Juliette, GA native would be ahead of Marks.

To top it off for Greene, he has one of the smoothest strokes anyone has seen this year. His shot flows with the same ease of a Ken Griffey Jr. connection on a deep home run.

That didn’t happen only when he came to Lawrence. There was a highlight video put together before he even landed at Kansas called: “6’7 Brannen Greene Has the Smoothest Jumper in the Nation.”

If it says it there, it must be true.
