Saturday’s game was clearly an exciting one. Here are the keys:
|Eff||107.8||117.2||-9.4||Actual net efficiency|
|-10.5||Predicted net efficiency|
And the non-traditional stats:
This is the game that killed Thies’ turnover ratio. Eight minutes with a rebound, a foul, and two turnovers will do that for a player. He’ll need to hold on to the ball if he doesn’t want his PER to venture into the red.
Games like this for Matt Hall show the true value of “true shooting percentage.” Case in point: Hall made just 8 of his 21 shots but hit 12 of his 15 free throw tries and finished with a respectable 54.3 TS%. Getting to the free throw line and making your shots is important, and Hall does it extremely well.
Champion Baptist comes in for a beating tonight, so we’ll probably only see the starters for 20 minutes or so. The stats could look pretty crazy, depending on how far out of hand this one gets.

Howard looked better in trash time v Texas College than he did in real time v NA. Still better a option than Thies. He has lots of raw talent to work with.
Morgan and Hamilton will have to play to defend opponents with quick feet. Neither Andrepont or Sims can do that. They are straight up and down players.
Yeah, I hate that Andrepont and Sims don’t defend very well, because it requires certain other players to be on the court at all times. I’m still looking forward to seeing Howard, Morgan, Hamilton, and others. Following the games online just isn’t the same.
Play enough Baptist Church League teams and you’re almost guaranteed a winning season 🙂
