Don Curnutt 1967-70

Curnutt was a high scoring guard who averaged 26.1 points per game in his three seasons in Miami. He holds three of the top six seasons in scoring for Miami. Curnutt has the fourth, fifth and sixth most points in a season in school history. He also holds three of the top six seasons in scoring average. He has the third, fourth and sixth best season averages in points.

By almost any scoring measure Curnutt is in the top five. His 1,816 career field goals made are nearly 300 more than anyone else that has played in a Miami Hurricanes uniform. That he accomplished it in three years is even more impressive. He is also third all-time in Miami history for points scored.

As a Senior Curnutt had 40 points five or more times. He scored at least 20 points 61 times during his career. He was called the greatest shooting guard in school history by the University of Miami Athletics Hall of Fame.

Curnutt was a consistent scorer throughout his Miami Hurricanes career. He led the U in scoring all three of his seasons in Coral Gables. He is one of only three Miami players to accomplish that. Curnutt was the second. Even Rick Barry was unable to do that. The last Miami Hurricanes player to do that was Jack McClinton from 2007-09.
