Thomas in record books at ISU

Matt Thomas finished his first season at Iowa State with the second-most 3-pointers made by a freshman.

The Onalaska, Wis. native finished the year 44-for-131 from beyond the arc (33.6%).

First on that list is Iowa State's all-time leading 3-pointer shooter, Jake Sullivan (2000-2004).

As a freshman, Sullivan put up impressive numbers, going 61 of 136 from beyond the arc for an impressive 44.9%. He averaged 11.4 points that season and 14.7 for his career (19th in the ISU record books).

He finished his career, Iowa State's all-time leading 3-pointer shooter, going 270-for-637 - the most 3s made and attempted in ISU history. He is splattered all over ISU's record books.

Thomas started 15 games and played in all 36, finishing with averages of 5.5 points, 2.1 rebounds, 1.1 assists, .6 steals and .5 turnovers.

The 6-foot-3 guard had an up-and-down season, unlike most freshman, who wouldn't see the court at all - especially on a veteran team like the Cyclones (28-8) had.

Thomas started the first game of the season and scored 10 points, including a pair of 3-pointers to go with 4 rebounds and three assists. Next time out he hit 5 of 10 field goals (3-7 from deep) in scoring 13 points and it looked as though he was going to be a major factor all season.

Thomas had a tough game against seventh-ranked Michigan, before putting up three double-digit scoring games in a row, including hitting his career high of 14 points twice. 

After that, however, Thomas went into a bit of a shooting slump. He went 11 games
