We had a few outlier games that gave us home, but they all need to take some major strides 4 - Talton is really hurting us statistically across the board 5 - Thomas, needs to improve his rebounding numbers. Next I want to look at KPI and see if they increased or decreased from 2014 from 2015. TS% (Total Shooting Percentage): The sum of a player's field goal, free throw and three-point percentage. eFG% (Effective Field Goal Percentage): A measurement of efficiency as a shooter in all field goal attempts with three-point attempts weighted fairly. ORB% (Offensive Rebound Percentage) DRB% (Defensive Rebound Percentage) TRB% (Total Rebound Percentage) AST% (Assist Percentage) TOV% (Turnover Percentage) STL% (Steal Percentage) BLK% (Block Percentage) USG% (Usage Percentage): A measurement of the percentage of plays utilized by a player while he is in the game PPS (Points Per Shot) ORtg (Offensive Rating): The number of points a player produces per 100 possessions DRtg (Defensive Rating): The number of points a player allows per 100 possessions PER: An efficiency statistic PlayerTS%eFG%ORB%DRB%TRB%AST%TOV%STL%BLK%USG%PPSORtgDRtgPERAskia Booker20152015201420142014201520152015201520152015201520142015Tre'Shaun Fletcher20152015201420142014201520142014201420142015201420142015Wesley Gordon20152015201520152015201520152014201520142015201520142015Jaron Hopkins20152015201420152015201520142015201520152015201520152015Xavier Johnson20142014201520152015201420142014201520152014201420142014Josh Scott20152015201520142014201520152014201520142015201520142015Xavier Talton20142014201420142014201420142015201420142014201420142014Dustin Thomas20152015201420142014201520152015201520142015201520152015 So what this table tells us if a player had higher numbers in 2014 or 2015. It doesn't weigh the numbers so a huge difference like a 20 point drop in offensive ratings is measured the same as a .1% drop in rebound percentage. I just want to trend across years the kpi. So what does this tell us: 1 - Both XJ and XT regressed this past year, especially Talton, he was worse almost across the board. 2 - As a team, we were much worse defensively this year than we were in 2014. The team was not playing Tadball 3 - our guards did a much worse job rebounding this year than last year. So for the most part we were an improved offensive team, we shot the ball better, we had more assists and a higher offensive rating, but it came at a cost on the defensive side of the ball. I think a summer in Boulder will really help the team focus and get better defensively (maybe we can see some zone at times next year), but I am still very worried about our team next year. We are putting a lot of our fortunes in Josh and Dom and I'm not sure they can carry the load. I think we really need a transfer guard or two on the team to elevate our backcourt to match the play of our frontcourt. If this costs us two players on the list above, then Tad has some difficult conversations in his future. As far as I can tell, the only guy we can't lose is Scott and when he leaves next year we may be in serious trouble.
