Just some random tidbits:

1 - Scootie Randall leads the nations in scoring (1 game)

2 - Kevin Dillard is second in the country in assists (1 game)

3 - La Salle leads the nation in Free Throw % (1 game)

4 - Brad Redford leads the nation in 3 pt. % (with 10 or more attempts)

5 - Briante Weber leads the nation in total steals (10)

I'm guessing the Hawks are up there in FG% Defense at 25%
Keep that up and its fun time.

Cant wait to see how good this team really is vs the No. 20 Irish on a neutral court friday.

Excellent thread, paulxu.

Re: 11/13 A-10 Games (Huge day!) - Post # 216


Needless to say, a sample size of one or two games will show averages which are not sustainable in a 30+ game schedule.

However, it is interesting to have a look at these early-season anomalies.


Atlantic 10 Statistics - Updated November 14, 2012 (Atlantic 10)


Here are a few surprises among this morning's A10 Conference Leaders:

(1) Richmond with a 92.5 PPG scoring average and a +42.5 PPG scoring margin average after 2 games.

(2) La Salle making 23 of 25 FTs (92 %) in their first game.

(3) Xavier making 62 % of their shots from the field in their first 2 games.

(4) Dayton making 50 % of their 3-point shots in their first game.​

I got my original stuff from ESPN.
Decided to check the StatSheet site to see about the Hawks.
This will be fun this year. That site thinks the XU/Butler game was a conference game and it's already started totalling things up that way.

SJU is 5th Nationally (I believe), we are all the way down at 18th (29%).

Oh does kenpom love our margins of victory! We are up to #30 with him.

Looking at points per possession on statsheet:

Xavier is #6 nationally with 1.43 points per possession!

Richmond is #12 nationally with 1.35 points per possession.

Saint Louis is #23 nationally with 1.27 points per possession.

Of course stats like these are kinda meaningless IMHO until there are about 10-15 games played.

Is that like a tribute thread to ExplorerSteve?

Nice. It's definitely meaningful to destroy teams like Liberty and UNC-W. Great teams should consistently destroy bad teams.

At the least, Scootie did it against a good team, not a D-II team like so many other schools have played.

<sigh>

I didn't claim it was all that meaningful. In fact, I characterized it as "kinda meaningless."

That old saw about messageboard posters lacking reading comprehension comes to mind. Did you just see SLU behind Richmond, scream "RAHRRRR!," and click reply?

Anytime someone who is not a moron is talking about basketball season stats in November, one should assume that it is not serious but just for fun.

You guys aren't giving a lotta love to Butler here.

(Stats in November ARE for fun)

I read your post and understood it. I didn't mean any sarcasm or anything. Richmond's first 2 games are a good sign even if it's only 2 games and they're against bad teams.

You forgot somebody. Chaz Williams is tied with Dillard and a few other guys with 10 assists. Cady LaLanne is tied for 13th in the country with his 13 rebounds from yesterday.

It's definitely meaningful to destroy Liberty, but I think we should go well beyond destroying their teams. That would be the mere tip of the iceberg.

I agree, so I took your tone correctly, and after SIMB's response thought I missed something.

Lots of good teams haven't pulverized two bad teams to start the season. It's not easy to double up anybody. As I mentioned in another thread before the season, I'm hopeful about this team and am surprised the experts don't share my opinion. Good start. Hope it is what it appears to be.

Why would you want to destroy Liberty? If you did that, the people who would otherwise go to Liberty might end up at your school of choice. Better to keep them all together at the Libertys of the world.

Yeah but the Hoosierz beat Bryant & ND St so clearly
they'll be in the final 4.

We didn't want to destroy Liberty but it seems the nature of American culture. :twoguns:

Although I did state if we lose Liberty, just kill me. PH

I have got to imagine that Rhody is a national leader in offensive futility. They are particularly bad from 3 point territory as they are shooting 17% (7-41) in two games. URI actually shot under 5% from 3 point range in the Va Tech game going 1-21.

URI Offense Through two games (Norfolk State and @ Va Tech)
Points 105
Points per game 52.5
FG made per game 17.5
FG attempts per game 56.0
FG Pct 31.2
3PT made per game 3.5
3PT attempts per game 20.5
3PT Pct 17.1
FT made per game 14.0
FT attempt per game 23.0
FT Pct 60.9
