Offensive Dude of the Game, (O-Dog)
(Points plus assists)
Tyus Battle 21 points + 1 assists = 22

Shooting Efficiency
(Points minus field goal and free throw attempts)
Tyus Battle 21 points – 5 mfg – 2 mft = +14

Scoring Efficiency
(Percentage of points scored divided by points they would have scored if they made every shot- minimum 10 possible points)
Buddy Boeheim 16 of 23 possible points = 69.6%

Sat Us Down
(Who scored the first SU basket of each half?)

1st Half- Tyus Battle lay-up 2:00 in
2nd Half- Elijah Hughes lay-up 1:09 in

(Who scored the point that got us to 70, which gets you free tacos with your ticket stub)
No tacos for us!

My Man
(Who played the most minutes?)
Elijah Hughes 38 minutes



(Add each team’s offensive rebounds to their opponent’s defensive rebounds. Then figure the offensive rebounds as a percentage of that)
We rebounded 9 of our 32 misses = 28.1%
They rebounded 15 of their 40 misses = 37.5%

Effective Offensive Rebounding
(Divide second chance points by the offensive rebounds)
We got 7 points on 9 O-Rebs = 0.778 points/O-reb
They got 11 points on 15 O-Rebs = 0.733 points/O-reb

Unforced Turnovers
(Total turnovers – the other team’s steals = unforced turnovers)
We had 13 turnovers – 4 steals = 9 unforced
They had 18 turnovers – 12 steals = 6 unforced

Points per Takeaway
(Points off turnovers divided by the number of turnovers the other team had)
We had 25 points from 18 takeaways = 1.389 points/takeaway
They had 5 points from 13 takeaways = 0.385 points/takeaway

Unsettled Situations
(Effective offensive rebounding + Points per Takeaway: [Second Chance Point + Points off Turnovers] divided by [Offensive Rebounds + Opposition Turnovers)
We had 32 points in 27 unsettled situations = 1.185 points
They had 16 points in 28 unsettled situations = 0.571 points

Manufactured Possessions
(One teams rebounds + the other team’s turnovers)
We had 34 + 18 = 52
They had 38 + 13 = 51


(Shots made and attempted and the percentage for two point goal attempts, three point attempts and free throws)
We were 15 for 34 on twos, (44.1%), 7 for 19 on threes (36.8%) and 16 for 20 on frees (80.0%)
They were 11 for 31 on twos, (35.5%), 7 for 23 on threes (30.4%) and 13 for 19 on frees (68.4%)

(PIP= points in the paint, “The Inner Sanctum”
POP = points outside the paint, which is total points – PIP -free throws made
OL= points from “The Outer Limits” (three point shots)
TZ= “Twilight Zone”, which is POP – TREY, two point jumpers from outside the paint, FBP = fast break points
POTO= points off turnovers

We had 30 PIP, 21 POP, 21 OL, 0 TZ, 25 POTO, 12 FBP
They had 16 PIP, 27 POP, 21 OL, 6 TZ, 5 POTO, 3 FBP

Fast Break Percentage
(FBP/(defensive rebounds + blocks + steals)
We scored 12 FBP in 43 opportunities (27.9%)
They scored 3 FBP in 28 opportunities (10.7%)

First Chance/Second Chance
(FCP is First Chance Points, which is total points - second chance points – fast break points – free throws made. SCP is second chance points.)
We had 32 FCP and 7 SCP
They had 29 FCP and 11 SCP

Last Possessions
(Points scored on the last full possession of a half, a game or an overtime period.)
We scored 0 points
They scored 3 points

(Total points – bench points = starters points)
Our starters scored 44 points and our bench scored 23 points
Their starters scored 27 points and their bench scored 29 points

(The percentage of a team’s baskets that were assisted)
We assisted 10 of our 22 field goals = 45.5%
They assisted 12 of their 18 field goals = 67.7%

Team Offensive Possession Efficiency
(Possessions: Field goals attempted - offensive rebounds + turnovers + 47.5% of free throws attempted. Efficiency is total points divided by possessions)
We scored 67 points in 66 possessions = 1.015 points/ possession
They scored 56 points in 67 possessions = 0.836 points/possession

It was a 133 possession game.

Team Shooting Efficiency

(Points minus missed field goals and free throws)

We scored 67 points, missed 31 field goals and 4 missed free throws = net 32
They scored 56 points, missed 36 field goals and 6 missed free throws = net 14

(Points scored divided by potential points scored if we’d made every shot)

We scored 67 on 34 two point attempts, 19 three point attempts and 20 free throw attempts = 67 of a possible 145 points = 46.2% of possible points scored.
They scored 56 on 31 two point attempts, 23 three point attempts and 19 free throw attempts = 56 of a possible 150 points = 37.3% of possible points scored.

Breakdown by Quarters
(Points scored between the beginning of the game and the 10 minute mark of the first half, then halftime, then the 10 minute mark of the second half, the end of regulation and then overtime of there was one)

14-12, 17-12, 21-13, 15-19


(Two point shots and free throws attempted per times fouled.)
We attempted 34 two point shots, attempted 20 free throws and were fouled 16 times = 2.125; 1.25
They attempted 31 two point shots, attempted 19 free throws and were fouled 20 times = 1.55; 0.95
They were more likely to get calls when attempting two point shots but we got more free throws per foul.


- We had three different players have minus net points in this game. Two of them didn’t play much but that’s still too many. They would have played more if their play was adequate.

- Stat of the game: we had 25 points on 18 takeaways and they had only 5 on 13. That’s a difference of a point per takeaway, (we scored a point more when we got the ball than they did when they got the ball).

- Normally we out-score teams from the Twilight Zone, often by a substantial margin. But this game was 0-6 in that stat.

- You want ugly? Try 22 assists and 31 turnovers.
