Net Points, etc. - Colgate

Aug 26, 2011
I will again be doing a report after each game this season and a summary report at the end of each month. (I’ve eliminated some stats from previous years to streamline this post.) This is limited to recruited scholarship players only.

Net Points
(points + rebounds + assists + steals + blocks minus missed field goals and free throws, turnovers and personal fouls)

Average net points/40 by position, (based on averaging 20+ minutes per game), since the 1980-81 season:
Centers 18.6; Power Forwards: 18.4; Small Forwards: 16.1, Shooting Guards: 13.3; Point Guards: 13.5

Benny Williams +17NP in 38 minutes = +14NP in 61 minutes = +9.2NP/40 for season
Jesse Edwards +14NP in 34 minutes = +43NP in 62 minutes = +27.7NP/40 for season
Judah Mintz +13NP in 37 minutes = +26NP in 63 minutes = +16.5NP/40 for season
Symir Torrence +7NP in 24 minutes = +22NP in 46 minutes = +19.1NP/40 for season
Joe Girard +6NP in 33 minutes = +21NP in 58 minutes = +14.5NP/40 for season
Mounir Hima +3NP in 6 minutes = +9NP in 14 minutes = +25.7NP/40 for season
Maliq Brown +1NP in 2 minutes = +7NP in 15 minutes = +18.7NP/40 for season
Quadir Copeland +1NP in 12 minutes = +5NP in 23 minutes = +8.7NP/40 for season
Chris Bell -1NP in 8 minutes = +4NP in 24 minutes = +6.7NP/40 for season
Justin Taylor -2NP in 6 minutes = 0NP in 26 minutes = 0.0NP/40 for season

DNP coach’s decision
John Bol Ajak 0NP in 0 minutes = +2NP in 4 minutes = +20.0NP/40 for season
Peter Carey 0NP in 0 minutes = +1NP in 4 minutes = +10.0NP/40 for season

Injured or ill and couldn’t play



Out for the year

Left Team


Offensive Dude of the Game, (O-Dog)
(Points plus assists)
Judah Mintz 20 points and 2 assists = 22

Shooting Efficiency
(Points minus missed field goal and free throw attempts)
Judah Mintz 20 points – 8mfg – 1mft = +11
Benny Williams 17 points – 6mfg – 0mft = +11

Scoring Efficiency
(Percentage of points scored divided by points they would have scored if they made every shot- minimum 10 possible points)
Jesse Edwards 10 points of 18 = 55.6%

My Man
(Who played the most minutes?)
Benny Williams 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 14 of our 40 misses = 35.0%
They rebounded 11 of their 33 misses = 33.3%

Unsettled Situations
[Second Chance Points+ Points off Turnovers] divided by [Offensive Rebounds + Opposition Turnovers)
We had 33 points in 27 unsettled situations = 1.222 points/situation
They had 31 points in 28 unsettled situations = 1.107 points/situation

Manufactured Possessions
(One teams rebounds + the other team’s turnovers)
We had 36+ 15 = 51
They had 37 + 13= 50


(Shots made and attempted and the percentage for two point goal attempts, three point attempts and free throws)
We were 16 for 37 on twos, (43.2%), 8 for 25 on threes (32.0%) and 12 for 15 on frees (80.0%)
They were 9 for 21 on twos, (42.9%), 19 for 38 on threes (50.0%) and 5 for 7 on frees (71.4%)

(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)
FT = Free Throws

We had 26 PIP, 30 POP, 24 OL, 6 TZ, 14 FT
They had 14 PIP, 61 POP, 57 OL, 4 TZ, 5 FT

Fast Break Percentage
(FBP/(defensive rebounds + blocks + steals)
We scored 5 FBP in 36 opportunities (13.9%)
They scored 4 FBP in 35 opportunities (11.4%)

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 33 FCP and 17 SCP
They had 56 FCP and 15 SCP

(Total points – bench points = starters points)
Our starters scored 61 points and our bench scored 7 points.
Their starters scored 56 points and their bench scored 24 points.


(The percentage of a team’s baskets that were assisted)
We assisted 9 of our 24 field goals = 37.5%
They assisted 22 of their 28 field goals = 78.6%

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 68 points in 68 possessions = 1.000 points/ possession
They scored 80 points in 66 possessions = 1.121 points/possession
It was a 134-possession game.

If we just use FGA + (47.5% FTA) and thus count an offensive rebound as an additional possession and a turnover as a lost possession:
We scored 68 points in 69 possessions = 0.986 points/ possession
They scored 80 points in 62 possessions = 1.290 points/possession

Team Shooting Efficiency

(Points minus missed field goals and free throws)

We scored 68 points, missed 38 field goals and missed 2 free throws = net +28
They scored 80 points, missed 31 field goals and missed 3 free throws = net +46

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

We scored 68 on 37 two-point attempts, 25 three-point attempts and 15 free throw attempts = 79 of a possible 164 points = 41.5% of possible points scored.
They scored 80 on 21 two-point attempts, 38 three-point attempts and 7 free throw attempts = 88 of a possible 163 points = 49.1% of possible points scored.


(Most fouls are called on two point shot attempts.)
We attempted 37 two-point shots and were fouled 14 times = 2.64
They attempted 21 two-point shots and were fouled 9 times = 2.33


- Colgate totally dominated this game from beginning to end – for one reason. They got off 38 three pointers and made 19 of them, breaking their own Dome record. The games other numbers were pretty equal. The red Raiders did a great job of maneuvering the ball to set up open shots and we did a lousy job of preventing them from doing so. You still have to make the open shots and they did- especially whenever we made a move to narrow the deficit.

- I mention this every year- assists are not simply a reflection of playing ‘team’ ball’. Jump shots get more credit for assists than other types of shots because the scorer is looking to see if the shooter has to move to get his shot off. Colgate did play better team ball but their offense is much more based on the jump shot than ours so they were going to get more assists than we were even if we won. Also, the shooter has to assist the passer in getting the assist by making the shot and Colgate was making them better than we were.

- Of course it’s easier to shoot outside jump shots is you get penetration and the ball goes back out. Firstly the defense tends to follow the ball and collapse in, leaving the shooter open but also the shooter is already squared to the basket. He doesn’t have to turn to catch the ball and reset his position. Here’s a stat that jumped out of the box score: Colgate Jeff Woodward played 23 minutes without scoring, (he missed his only two shots). But he had 7 assists! The ball went into him. The defense shrank to cover him, even though he didn’t score, and left guys wide open for threes.
