You have mentioned Hensley a couple of times as someone who could make a jump (possibly) to a much bigger role. He's a career .186 from 3 shooter and not much scoring in between. Admittedly on low...

I would also agree with Sedz that one of the best things that could happen for the frosh would be if one of the wings can steal some time at PG opening up more minutes on the wing. DDJ or anyone...

Wes says we need to score more points and shoot better. I don't know where Hensley fits in that equation unless he makes a massive jump on offense. Ody has been around a while this is his 4th year....

I think the actual quote was something to the effect of Wes is expecting for or hoping for a big jump coming from JD.

Getting better looks from 3 could be one way but it could also mean working...

After reading some thoughts taken from an Athletic article with Wes it would seem that Vik is doing the early work to put himself in good position in terms of the bigs. That is a very welcome thing...

It's not a stat I would find useful in single games or even just a few games. But how the team is playing over the long term when certain players are on the floor is something I would want to know

That is weird because his ORTG on Torvik he was the highest on the team.

But I am sure his shot selection will change quite a bit as he will not be a top 3 option. Also I would suspect Wes will...

I guess an easy way to minimize meaningless possessions would be to use just the first half plus minus numbers from Gamebook. And maybe add 2nd half numbers for conference games that were...

JD also missed a game as well as Newman. And Newman was on a pretty good streak right before injury and then didn't do a lot for a 6-7 game stretch. He did finish out pretty strong after that.

His numbers are going to be correct for whatever measures he is using. I donít think they are wrong. I am just saying itís not an actual plus minus number. Itís weighted somehow. Maybe itís...

By the way I donít place ANY emphasis on individual games or even short stretches. I only like plus minus over long term.

He describes his process as stats related. An adjusted BPM which is also an algorithm. Plus minus IS already THE stat if you are calculating it you divide by number of games.

Go Bearcats does have all the gamebooks. I was calculating up until about 6-8 games left in season. I am confident in what I calculated for actual.

I donít put a lot of stock in D ratings off algorithms. You canít measure on ball D with stats. Offense is a lot different. D is a crap shoot. I have seen JD out there as a very good defender and...

I agree with your point about shiny new objects! That pretty well sums it up. However, with Nolley I would not mind seeing point forward for 5 minutes a half (if he can do it) if not DDJ 5 minutes...

Nolley is a career 80% FT shooter. Just imagine if he can work from the perimeter. Take away that midrange BS and go to the rack.

Wes seems both a little stubborn but also a bit pliable. He's...

In terms of penetrating we lost Mason, AJ and Mike. Hard to see how Nolley is not an improvement. I imagine Rob can do about as good as Mike. Kalu would be better than Ado or Koval. Mason was not...

Nolley is a career 35% on good volume from 3. That is not something I would call a problem given our past production as a team. His frosh year was his lowest year on much higher volume. 32%. Last...

This would be my preference or DDJ for a spurt at the 1. Not a long time but for 10 minutes get Rob and MAW off the floor. Allows 3 best scorers and Newman to be on the floor with whoever our best...
