    10.4 per game. We have 300 turnovers to 218 assists. Not good

    The offense this season has definitely looked Patton-esque.

    Terrible. That's the problem with our offense, especially on the road, we rely too much on getting to the line, which works fine at home when we get the calls, but it doesn't translate well on the road. That stat alone explains our road woes.

    Way too much one-on-one play, and it kills us almost everytime on the road. This team desperately needs a pass first guard, Ski needs to learn to pass the ball more on the road.

    yeah got the stats from espn. Either way its not good. Not sure if its the offense or just the players are not a great match together.

    IMO it'a the offense. When you rely on individual players to make plays in an offense you aren't going to get many assists. If there were more set plays, a motion or pick and roll based offense with this same crew you would see more assists.

    I'm really curious to see how Boyle adjusts next year. He's done a great job so far, but now we get to see if he can take the next step as a coach. So far, he's been pretty stubborn about the offense he's running (or lack of offense he's running), but next year can't be a repeat of what we've seen this year. If it is, I'll have serious questions about this team's ability to truly break through as a consistent contender for the conference crown and tournament team.

    Not remotely surprised. So much standing around. Most frustrating year on offense in a while (note the difference between "frustrating" and "worst", so don't respond with "but CVille we were 1-15 in the Big XII in 08/09 rofl"

    You guys just don't appreciate the brilliance of running a three man weave 35 feet from the basket.

    I was just checking out kenpom and our assist numbers are amazingly bad.

    CU has assists on 42.1% of field goals, good for 343rd in the NCAA. Only Illinois, jackson St, Southeastern Louisiana and Deleware are worse.

    Last year CU had assists on 50.4% of FG's (253rd) and in 2011 they had assists on 50.1% of FG's (250th). Tad's best assist rate was his first year as a head coach, in 2007 at UNC his team had assists on 56.8% of FG's (125th).

    Utah is the best in the P12, having assists on 62.3% of FG's this year.

    We need to get more shots in rhythm. Too many times we stop the dribble, pass and run the clock all the way down and force something...
