@polli, I like your analysis. I've always wondered whether coaches look at points per shot by shot type on a per-player basis, and if not, why not.Thanks to Shades for posting the team statistics. During this lull in the schedule I used them to do a little analysis.
Our three posts are 40 of 57 (all 2s), that’s 70%. Is that good for post players? How does it compare with other good team’s post players? How does it compare with our Final Four team?
The perimeter players are 89 of 217 shooting 2s, that’s 41%. Each 2-point attempt was worth 0.82 points.
And on those High Value 3-point shots, 45 of 125; that’s 36%. Each 3-point attempt was worth 1.08 points.
Is that right? Three for me? Who should stick to the perimeter?
Pitts: 0.66 points every inside shot; 1.34 points for every shot from outside the arc.
Powell: 0.92 points per shot inside; 0.46 p/s outside.
Hubbard: 1.0 p/s inside; 1.07 p/s outside.
Brunson: 1.3 p/s inside; 0.33 p/s outside.
Scalia: 0.9 p/s inside; 1.5 p/s outside.
Staples: 0.67 p/s inside; 0.64 p/s outside.
Masha: 0.4 p/s inside; 1.5 p/s outside.
Barbora: 0.5 p/s inside; 1.5 p/s outside.
Of course this is only based on shots. We should also consider how many times a perimeter player tried to drive the lane and lost the ball.
|Pitts:||3 of 10 on 3s||1 of 8 on 2s|
|Hubbard:||6 of 13 on 3s||1 of 3 on 2s|
|Brunson:||2 of 2 on 3s||3 of 9 on 2s|
|Scalia:||1 of 6 on 3s||3 of 5 on 2s|
P.S. Here's an opinion: This thread is misnamed.
It looks like we have a couple guards we can build on. Now if we could only get some inside help. Hard to evaluate some of the other Gopher frosh when they're not healthy.
For me, she's a bit like Bell, but without as much speed and without the bevy of turnovers.
It will be fun to see what Powell can do with her passing as she becomes more familiar with her teammates.
Sconiers has only played in 4 games, but has put up decent numbers in those games, other than rebounding.
