Anyone else get worried when the announcers started saying he might have s concussion? Great play from him 'cause managed to stay on the court so long.

It looked pretty painful.

He's averaging 14 points, 8 rebounds, 69% in only 24 mpg.

His nickname should be The Governor (in addition to Dick Towel)

I appreciate Richard Howell.

By the way, not sure if this has been posted yet, he is currently #3 in the nation in FG% http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/statistics/player/_/stat/field-goals/year/2013/seasontype/2/group/50

He's having a truly unbelievable season so far.

O-rating: 126.6, O-reb 16%, D-reb 24.6%, 66.7% FG, and in the top 500 nationally in block rate and turnover rate.


I really doubt ANYONE thought that Howell and Warren would be our best two players this season...

Could you put those numbers in perspective for people that don't know what they mean?

Like, compare him to zeller/plumlee/barnes/bennet?

O-rating of 100 is considered average. His ranks 79th in the entire country.

His eFG% is 21st in the nation, o-reb % is 28th, d-reb% is 53rd.

He's having a statistically dominant season right now basically.

Zeller by comparison is 129.2, 13.8% OREB, 19.2% DREB, and 60.7 eFG%


FWIW, TJ Warren's o-rating is a ludicrous 136.1 (#18 in the nation), with the #2 eFG% and the 41st lowest TO%. Realistically, he's the best freshman in the country though he might not get quite the exposure he needs to win national awards.

Howell is having a great season. When he wants to get to the basket, he is. I wish that he would've gotten on the diet a year sooner to see what he could've done in 3 years at this level of fitness. He's been running all around the court and just dominating. I appreciate him very much.

against norfolk state he drained a baseline 15 footer, and shortly after (maybe the next trip down) he airballed from a foot behind the free-throw line...
but he made up for it.

Impact Performer

By Austin Johnson
Pack Pride
Posted Dec 18, 2012

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Since the day he stepped on campus, Richard Howell has been one of the best rebounders in the ACC.

Since the day he stepped on campus, Richard Howell has been one of the best rebounders in the ACC.
Even as a freshman, when Howell was playing sparingly behind Dennis Horner and Tracy Smith he managed to lead the team in both offensive rebounding percentage and defensive rebounding percentage.

Since then, he just keeps getting better. As a sophomore he led the team in both categories once again while ranking sixth in the nation in offensive rebounding percentage. Last year he once again led the team in both categories and ranked 15th nationally on the offensive boards.

So it’s no surprise that Howell is once again dominating the boards as a senior. Howell has grabbed 29 offensive rebounds – the rest of the team has a combined 67. His 57 defensive rebounds also lead the team.

“I've had a couple [good rebounders] but [Richard Howell] is as good as I've had probably,” head coach Mark Gottfried said. “His hands are so good. When he gets his hands on it, he's got it."

“He just gets every rebound. He's cleaning up some mistakes defensively when we make them."

The big leap for Howell this year hasn’t been in his rebounding though, it’s been in his ability to finish around the basket. After shooting under 50 percent from the floor as a junior, Howell has become one of the most efficient scorers in the nation – shooting 66 percent from the floor (a figure that ties him for 10th in the nation in field goal percentage).

The problem for Howell has never been producing when he was on the court – it’s been staying on the court. As a freshman and sophomore he was limited both by the players in front of him and his conditioning. As a junior he slimmed up but couldn’t stay out of foul trouble, playing just 27 minutes a game. It’s remained a problem into his junior year despite being a point of emphasis for him in the offseason, as he’s playing just 26 minutes a game up to this point.

“I think the main thing is my fouling. I reached a lot when I shouldn't have and I feel like that's a growing stage,” Howell said at ACC Media Day in October. “I feel like if I don't reach a lot then we'll be alright.”

Howell was more right than he knew at the time, as the Pack is 0-2 in games where Howell fouls out and undefeated otherwise. Because of foul trouble, Howell has played a full 40 minutes less than his front-court mate CJ Leslie and is tied for fifth on the team in minutes played.

“Not necessarily,” Gottfried said. “I think the biggest key for Richard has been his ability to stay in the game and not be saddled with foul trouble. I think he's a different player... obviously when he stays in the game we're a different team.”

“If he ends up with one or two fouls early in the game he just seems... that's hard for him to overcome.”

The encouraging news for Pack fans is that since the loss to Michigan, Howell has just four fouls spread over three games. Not coincidentally, Howell had a double-double in each of those games and is coming off an absolutely dominant 12 point, 19 rebound, and five block performance against an overmatched Norfolk State team.

“I just think for him, staying out of foul trouble changes the way he plays,” Gottfried said.

If he’s finally learned how to stay on the court, the Pack becomes a much tougher team to beat."

If Howell doesn't like what he hears from NBA scouts about his draft chances, he should try for an NFL roster as a tight end. He's got all the physical tools to be the next Jimmy Graham.
