Absolute Importance Inside Game

Postby rogdochar » Sun Feb 24, 2013 2:48 pm

Inside game characteristics:
1) Higher % shots made (surer points)
2) Far higher # free throw attempts(+extra points or points on misses)
Very few times fouled on 3-pt attempts.
3) Far higher # of rebound put-backs for scores (less 1 & done shots).
..or fouled to shoot FT for points.

You can tell which teams go inside more by more free-throws taken.

All teams do not fiercely defend 3-pt shots because it's accepted that
those are least likely to beat you.

These whole-season free-throw(FT) stats define a team's style:
1) .. Bama ... 1405 FGAttempts (lowest wow) .. = 511 FTA (ok?)

2) .. UT ...... 1351 FGA (low wow!) = 603 FTA (high wow !)

3) .. Arkansas .. 1670 FGA (high wow!) ..= 552 FTA

4) .. Mizzou .. 1636 FGA (high wow!) .. = 555 FTA

5) .. UF .. 1427 FGA (lowest wow!) .. = 407 FTA (lowest wow!)

6) .. Indiana .. 1490 FGA (low) .. = 713 FTA (gosh-high wow!)

7) .. U Kansas .. 1495 FGA(low) .. = 593 FTA (high wow!)

8) .. Syracuse .. 1615 FGA (high) .. = 584 FTA (high)

9) .. UK ... 1500 FGA ..= 645 FTA (high wow!)

10) .. Louisville ... 1595 FGA ... = 605 FTA (high)

So, with most fouls committed to challenge inside shots, teams
with the most FTAs are "driving' for inside shots. Those teams get more attempts due to quick offensive rebound put back attempts. This is
what wears stressfully on the perimeter shooting team. It seems such
an uphill battle that can cause the 3-pt shooters to choke on the
urgency to score points on their one & done shots (which accounts for
our only 1427 FG shots along with only 407 FTAs).

Add to that : extra points from free-throws, lessened defense from
defenders worrying about fouling out, etc. etc.

Against Miami, Wake Forest drove in to score 73.7% of their points
via inside even with their perimeter shooters hitting 58.3% of 3s.
Of course, that inside game got them 21/31 FTs for 21 extra points.
Now, in 1-loss elimination time, good luck helping your team by
arguing the refs are biased.

Great points, rog. It's clear the more powerful the inside game is, the higher chance of adding a win.

Indiana, Kansas, Cuse, UK (w/ Noel) feed the post. Yesterday, we fed the post much more and a much better outcome. Even saw it from the 1st half to the 2nd.

We must feed the post to capitalize on perimeter, not vice versa.

Then, we got to hit our free throws. Does no good to get to the line, if you don't convert.
Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be.

Rog, I didn't read all that shyte, but you're right.

Look at eh game last night. When we got inside, either via drive or pass, something good happened. If Billy can get it through those guys hard heads, this team can goo REALLY deep in the "toonament."

Go boys!

Right "TomGat", I peeked at Indiana's suspicious stat of 1490 FGA with
713 FT attempts = way out of line advantageously compared to
other teams .

And since they have not "practice-played" this way Gators should get
better at it = better balanced attack..more chances to cause defensive
mistakes by opponents... on to surer baskets.

Many think Murphy is really valuable as a 3 point shooter. Murphy is
ranked as the # 172nd 3-point scorer, averaging 2.5 -- 3-pointers/g.
So we trade a 6'10" inside man to get 7.5 points per game out there.
What might his worth be inside more ? Surely with dished scores and
put-back rebound points, we could benefit. Not to mention having
a 6'4"- 6'6" speedier hustler sweeping around the perimeter for drives
and dish set-ups. IDK ?? Won't we meet teams like this in March ?

I'm not smart enough about the game of Basketball to comment much on this, however it certainly sounds logical that the more you work the ball inside, the more fouls you'll draw, and therefore end up getting more free-throws. How all that ends up affecting the outcome of the game seems supported by the the stats Rog pointed out.
