Xavier Simsons stats points 8.9 rebounds 5.1 Assists 5.9
Quentin Goodin points 12 rebounds 2.6 Assists 4.9
sipson's highest points once over 20 points 24 Northwestern
goodin 3 times over 20 points 20, 21 22
simpson's highest rebound 3 times 10 or above 10, 10 and 11
goodin's highest game 9
Simpson's 8, 8 10, 12 four high games
Goodin's 8, 10, 9 , 8
simpson certainly has better TO numbers
Simpson has also not been hurt.... Q's numbers have been terrible the game before he sat out after having good numbers the game prior to that bad game
Simpsson has had 4 games where he scored 3 or less points with one of those games 0 points
Goodin has had 2 games of 3 or less and no shutouts
Simpson's three point shooting (although he doesn't take many in some games) looks as dismal as Goodin's
In terms of basketball acumen, you were rated as the 693 wisest poster, but will fall somewhere in the 800 range, with your illogical selection of data points and rambling analysis. How relevant is the number of games they've had with points over 10 and 20, or how many points they average a game, if accomplished inefficiently, and to the detriment to the team? The fact that Simpson shoots a higher fg percentage from the field (by 5%), makes the avg points/game comparison meaningless. Michigan's schedule has also been a lot stronger than X's, and XS is the 4th-5th scoring option, where Q should be for X, though he obviously considers himself as IB to Marhsall's 1a. Spoiler alert to both: Scruggs is the number one scoring option. Guess what: If you shoot more, even if a lot - most of the shots are ill-advised, there's a good chance you'll score more.
To your sole excellent point, both are poor 3 point shooters and should limit those. XS shoots 3 a game, while Q shoots 4.5 Again, advantage Simpson. You excluded arguably the most important data point for a pg, assists to turnover ratio. Simpson's is 3.5, wheres Goodin's is 1.75. That's HUGE.
I'm still a Goodin fan but he hasn't been a good shooter since probably the YMCA league, and that's ok, if he would understand his deficits and embrace his strengths. IF he develops a 10 foot pull up, and develops more consistency driving to the hoop, he can still be an effective 4th scoring option.
As someone who puts AH's Mentor on his business card, don't embarrass me again. MuskieNick is salivating at the thought of replacing you as my bball sensei.
