    2 assists in 31 minutes doesn't sound good for PG @RickkyTorres, but that stat is misleading. I counted a total of 11 passes made by Torres that led to good shots for WSU, a team high, just unlucky the shots just missed.

      I counted 3 assists he could of have had if McDuffie would have finished the lay up.

      I think they call those coach's assists.

  • Assists, and by extension, assist to turnover ratio, are statistics with a lot of noise. I don't find either of them to be overly useful, though they can be sometimes applicable. I'm more concerned with how often a player turns the ball over and how does it compare with his ability to create his own shot or create good looks for others, even if they don't go in.

      It’s like hits in baseball. As they say in Moneyball, making solid contact is what should be measured. A PG can’t control whether the teamamte fumbles a beautiful pass or misses a wide open shot.

    That's a bold statement young man. Seeing how the Shox barely beat a team (at home) with a 300 SOS and their 5 wins came against teams with a combined 5 and 29 record, oh, and basketball powerhouse Carver Bible College. I hope you're right.
