More Details on Seth Allen

Sure, we won’t see Seth put on orange and maroon and take the floor for another 18 months, but here are some things to get excited about…

Outside Shooting: Seth hit 49 three-pointers this year at a 38% clip.  That would have placed him 2nd on this past year’s Hokie squad in makes and #1 in percentage.

Overall Scoring: Allen’s 13.4 ppg would have led the offensively challenged Hokies this past season (but was 2nd on the terps).  He does not attack the tin a ton — more than half of his 89 made shots were 3s and he only averaged 3 free throws per game.  Seth was a solid 75% foul shooter when he did get to the line.

Handle: Seth had a solid assist-to-turnover ratio of almost 2-to-1 (3.0 apg to 1.7 tpg).  His ratio was actually better than Devin Wilson, who had way more assists but also a lot more turnovers (1.6 ratio compared to Seth’s 1.76 ratio).

Defense: At 6’1″, he doesn’t have the length a lot of Hokies have.  He did average just under a steal per game, which would have led the Hokies, but Tech was abysmal in terms of creating turnovers/steals (Tech was dead last in the ACC in steals by more than 1 per game).

Progress: Seth improved in almost every category from his freshman to sophomore season, showing he was getting better as you’d hope.

FYI: Seth, originally from Woodbridge, was a 3-star recruit coming out of high school in Fredericksburg.
