• During his freshman campaign, Isaac established himself as an impact contributor for a Florida State team that produced one of its strongest seasons in program history. The ACC All-Rookie pick started every single game, helping the Seminoles equal their second-highest single-season win total ever, with 26. Last year, FSU climbed as high as number six in the national polls, marking their best ranking in 25 years.
• Active and fluid for his size, Isaac scored steadily, and at a respectable volume. He reached double figures 21 times, and topped the 20-point mark on three occasions. More noteworthy, perhaps, was that Isaac’s offensive output reflected a quality degree of efficiency. The Bronx native placed fifth in field goal percentage (59.3) in the prospect-heavy ACC, and was eighth in the league in true shooting percentage (61.4), a metric accounting for 2-pointers, 3-pointers, and free throws. Successful against man and zone defensive schemes alike, Isaac accounted for 1.03 points per offensive possession, scored on 49.0 percent of his possessions overall, and was particularly effective cutting to the basket. He proved to be a willing shooter from beyond the arc, too, nailing 31 of 89 3-point attempts.
Back in February, Isaac showed off several facets of his offensive game in FSU’s one-sided win over North Carolina State. He set the tone for the tilt in a major way during the opening two and a half minutes of action, en route to posting 21 points (6-10 fg, 1-2 3fg, 8-11 ft) and seven rebounds.
• Isaac put his frame to use around the basket, yanking down 7.8 rebounds per game, good for seventh-best in the ACC. Also worth mentioning, he cleared 16.5 percent of total shots missed while on the court, which represented the conference’s fifth-best rebounding percentage. In regard to rim protection, Isaac averaged 1.5 blocks per game (fifth in the ACC), turning aside 49 shots in all. He converted a stellar 71.9 percent of his offensive putback opportunities (23-32), per Synergy Sports.
Did You Know?:
During his high school years, Isaac experienced a considerable spike in height, shooting up about seven inches. The growth spurt, understandably, prompted him to undergo a positional switch from guard to forward between his sophomore and junior seasons. A year and a half ago, Isaac told USAB.com that the change “wasn’t that hard. I think just through working on my game and playing basketball, things just transitioned as I grew.”
