A true volume scorer, he finished second on the Dons with 10.9 points per game which was 25th in the WCC. His 121 made free throws is a single-season record by a freshman at USF along with his 47 made 3-point field goals is fourth-most in a single-season by a freshman at USF, Boum scored 20 or more points seven times and scored a career-high 26 points twice,
