@D5K Nailed it
PSU doesn't have any one who can match up with Amir. He needs to get involved on offense, either the boards or some post ups, but he can't get in foul trouble. Of course he's had trouble staying on the floor in the past and is averaging 2.5 fouls/game this season in 24.2 mpg
Sports Reference does this
As for +/- I saw it used in a Lantern article, but the author doesn't reference where the stats came from.
Right. These are high-efficiency plays. I wanted to make the point that this doesn't necessarily mean a high ortg and low usage player should get the ball more and increase usage because they are usually taking advantage of easy opportunities that others created for them (unless they move off the ball really well, but I don't see much of that with this team imo).
Our TO%Def is crazy good! Unfortunately, it seems like we don't create enough points off these turnovers. DefRebounding is bad which is no surprise. This post is awesome. I love analytical posts like this, especially about Buckeye hoops.
I agree that Loving should definitely be getting more minutes, but offensive ratings don't account for a players ability to create their own shot. Ross, Craft, Scott, and Smith are our best at this (relatively not very good tho). Loving is getting better at driving and drawing fouls.
