My understanding is:
1. The 546,428 figure for HS players is all players, not just seniors.
2. All (NCAA) college players are included, both varsity and JV.
3. If roughly 25% of the HS players are seniors, thats 136,607.
4. Yes, I think we're just talking NCAA as far as the 3.4%.
5. So, 3.4% of HS players go on to play NCAA basketball. But,
6. The total percentage of kids playing in HS that go on to play any level of college basketball is prob a little higher than 3.4%

AndOne, I think he meant NCC was an isolated case, not that you were wrong about NCC's figures.

I have noticed that at a few other schools as well, but I think MOST schools present at least well-intentioned data.

If that's what Dave meant, I missed the signal and apologize.

Admittedly, I don't often criticize things NCC. But, over the years I've been perplexed several times by both always having the reported attendance figure ending in a 5 or 0, and at some reported totals with didn't seem to coincide very closely with the percentage of the stands that were filled vs the Hangar's 2,478 seats. 🤔

If anything, I think NCC figures are more often under estimated/reported as opposed to some schools which often seem to report inflated numbers.

Yep... Ypsi pointed out what I was saying. That NCC is more of an exception than a rule. It is an isolated occurrence more than a general pattern or habit.
