I am sure many people are thinking that he will, but there are two other players that could do so as well. Those two players are Le’Bryan Nash and Markel Brown.
Let’s just put it this way. Smart averaged 15.4 points per game last season, Brown averaged 15.3 points per game last season and Nash averaged 14 points per game last season. All three of those players are capable of leading the team in scoring in the upcoming season.
Smart definitely has the most upside to him, but Brown shot a lot more efficiently last season and he will be playing in his final year in college hoops. Smart will only be a sophomore, but it will more than likely be his final year as well. Smart has the potential to go in the top five of the NBA draft and a big season out of him and Oklahoma State would lead to that.
In the grand scheme of things it really does not matter who leads the team in scoring, but it is an interesting topic to look at before the new season starts.
The Cowboys still have three lethal scorers that can go off at any time.
My guess would be that Smart would lead the team in scoring once again, but Brown will not be too far behind him and Nash will get his fair share of points as well.
