Who is the leading scorer in college basketball?

Mainstream college basketball fans may not know who the leading scorer in the sport is. That distinction goes to James Daniel, who plays at Howard.

Daniel is a 5-11 junior for the Bison, and he's an absolutely electric scorer. He burst onto the scene as a freshman, scoring 21.0 points per game. That number dipped as a sophomore, but now as a junior, he's having a season for the ages. He's averaging 28.5 points per game.

Daniel has topped 30 points on six occasions, but has yet to top the 40-point threshold. His season-high is a 39-point explosion against William & Mary.

Here are some highlights of one of the most dynamic players in college hoops:
