Both Jahii Carson and Shabazz Muhammad could end up in the top 10 in terms of top Pac-12 scoring seasons for a freshman.

The 2007-08 season was out-of-this-world-good with freshmen who could score, led by O.J. Mayo’s 20.7 points per game (second-best by a Pac-12 freshman), Jerryd Bayless at 19.7 (fourth), James Harden at 17.8 (ninth) and Kevin Love at 17.5 (12th).

Shabazz (18.5) and Jahii (17.6) rank seventh and 10th currently.
