Marquette led the country in 3P% with a 42.9% clip in 2016-2017.

The Golden Eagles attempted 783 3-point shots and made 336 of them.

3P% = 336 / 783 * 100 = 42.91%

In comparison, UTSA ranked dead last in 3P% in 2016-2017, shooting 26.7% from behind the 3-point line.

2P%

A team's offensive 2-point field goal percentage is its 2-point makes divided by its 2-point attempts.

2P% = 492 / 808 * 100 = 60.89
