A press conference is set for Tuesday afternoon, when T.J. Warren will make official what we already knew. Or maybe he's been planting the rumors that he's going pro and will instead announce that he loves college and plans to stay all four years. Yes, I'm sure that's what's really going on.

Now's as good a time as any to appreciate the numbers Warren posted this year, and they really can't be appreciated enough.

ORTG %Poss %Shots eFG% TO% FT% 2FG% 3FG%
Warren 113.7 33.9 37.3 54.8 12.2 69.0 58.0 26.7

That %Poss figure ranks seventh nationally, while he's third in %Shots, behind only Doug McDermott and some random from Savannah State. Twenty percent is considered an average workload in those two categories, so he was practically handling the work of two players and still managed to make 58% of his twos. I watched it all year and I still don't know how that's possible.

He attempted 536 two-pointers, 226 free throws, and 116 threes this year. It's a wonder he doesn't need elbow surgery or something. Warren made 311 of those twos ... nobody else on the team even attempted that many shots from the field. Ralston Turner finished second on the team with 310 FGAs. That's crazy, man.
