Aug 26, 2011
I will again be doing a report after each game this season and a summary report at the end of the non-conference season, the ACC season and the post season.

Net Points
(points + rebounds + assists + steals + blocks minus missed field goals and free throws, turnovers and personal fouls) Season net points and average per 40 minutes is in parenthesis.

Oshae Brissett 20NP in 38 minutes
Jalen Carey 6NP in 10 minutes
Frank Howard 5NP in 32 minutes
Tyus Battle 5NP in 38 minutes
Bourama Sidibe 2NP in 18 minutes
Elijah Hughes 2NP in 36 minutes
Paschal Chukwu 1NP in 19 minutes
Marek Dolezaj -4NP in 9 minutes

DNP coach’s decision

Robert Braswell
Howard Washington (does he belong in the next category?)



Offensive Dude of the Game, (O-Dog)
(Points plus assists)
Elijah Hughes 16 points + 0 assists = 16

Shooting Efficiency
(Points minus field goal and free throw attempts)
Elijah Hughes 16 points - 9mfg – 2mft = +5
Frank Howard 13 points - 8mfg – 0mft = +5
Tyus Battle 11 points - 6mfg – 0mft = +5

Scoring Efficiency
(Percentage of points scored divided by points they would have scored if they made every shot- minimum 10 possible points)
Tyus Battle 11 of 26 possible points = 42.3%

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

1st Half- Elijah Hughes lay-up 1:54 in
2nd Half- Paschal Chukwu dunk 13 seconds 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?)
Tyus Battle 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 10 of our 40 misses = 25.0%
They rebounded 18 of their 43 misses = 42.9%

Effective Offensive Rebounding
(Divide second chance points by the offensive rebounds)
We got 5 points on 10 O-Rebs = 0.500 points/O-reb
They got 12 points on 18 O-Rebs = 0.667 points/O-reb

Unforced Turnovers
(Total turnovers – the other team’s steals = unforced turnovers)
We had 16 turnovers – 9 steals = 7 unforced
They had 16 turnovers – 6 steals = 10 unforced

Points per Takeaway
(Points off turnovers divided by the number of turnovers the other team had)
We had 14 points from 16 takeaways = 0.875 points/takeaway
They had 15 points from 16 takeaways = 0.9375 points/takeaway

Unsettled Situations
(Effective offensive rebounding + Points per Takeaway: [Second Chance Point + Points off Turnovers] divided by [Offensive Rebounds + Opposition Turnovers)
We had 19 points in 26 unsettled situations = 0.731 points
They had 27 points in 34 unsettled situations = 0.794 points

Manufactured Possessions
(One teams rebounds + the other team’s turnovers)
We had 35 + 16 = 51
They had 48 + 16 = 64


(Shots made and attempted and the percentage for two point goal attempts, three point attempts and free throws)
We were 18 for 35 on twos, (51.9%), 6 for 22 on threes (27.3%) and 5 for 13 on frees (38.5%)
They were 13 for 29 on twos, (44.8%), 10 for 33 on threes (30.3%) and 15 for 20 on frees (75.0%)

(PIP= points in the paint, POP = points outside the paint, which is total points – PIP –free throws made, TREY: points from 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 24 PIP, 30 POP, 18 TREY, 12 TZ, 14 POTO, 5 FBP
They had 22 PIP, 34 POP, 30 TREY, 4 TZ, 15 POTO, 16 FBP

Fast Break Percentage
(FBP/(defensive rebounds + blocks + steals)
We scored 5 FBP in 40 opportunities (12.5%)
They scored 16 FBP in 36 opportunities (44.4%)

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 44 FCP and 5 SCP
They had 28 FCP and 12 SCP

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

(Total points – bench points = starters points)
Our starters scored 52 points and our bench scored 7 points
Their starters scored 58 points and their bench scored 13 points

(The percentage of a team’s baskets that were assisted)
We assisted 7 of our 24 field goals = 29.2%
They assisted 12 of their 23 field goals = 52.2%

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 59 points in 69 possessions = 0.855 points/ possession
They scored 71 points in 69 possessions = 1.029 points/possession
It was a 138 possession game.

Team Shooting Efficiency

(Points minus missed field goals and free throws)

We scored 59 points, missed 33 field goals and 8 missed free throws = net 18
They scored 71 points, missed 39 field goals and 5 missed free throws = net 27

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

We scored 59 on 35 two point attempts, 22 three point attempts and 13 free throw attempts = 62 of a possible 105 points = 56.2% of possible points scored.
They scored 71 on 29 two point attempts, 33 three point attempts and 20 free throw attempts = 68 of a possible 111 points = 64.0% 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)

18-11, 18-21, 12-15, 11-24


(Two point shots and free throws attempted per times fouled.)
We attempted 35 two point shots, attempted 13 free throws and were fouled 18 times = 1.94; 0.72
They attempted 29 two point shots, attempted 20 free throws and were fouled 19 times = 1.53; 1.05;
They were more likely to get calls when attempting two point shots and got more free throws out of it when we were fouled.


- I’m surprised that Buffalo had more unforced turnovers than we did: 10-7. Our guys made a lot of bad or lazy passes and dribbled the ball off our feet a couple of times as well. Some of those must have bene counted as “steals”.

- JB says “we can’t run” but Buffalo does. They had 16 fast break points to our 5 and are averaging 85 points per game. Yes, they had 48 rebounds to our 35. They are a shorter team. And 35 rebounds is not a small number5 fast break points off of 35 rebounds, 5 blocks and 6 steals is a very small number.

- Here’s a shocker: We had 44 first chance points to their 28. It didn’t seem like it but our initial sets were far more productive than theirs were. But the had 7 more second chance points, 11 more fast break points and 10 more made free throws.

- The stat that really jumps out at you is that Oshae Brissett was 16 for 16 from the line against this team last year. This year he was 0 for 3.
Maybe if we stopped recruiting toothpick thin centers we could rebound better and run more. A combined 5 rebounds from our two centers.
