2019 NIT 2nd Rd - Game Thread X vs. Texas

Postby mumuskie87 » Sun Mar 24, 2019 12:40 pm

Chance for X to reach 20 wins.
Would be 14 out 15 years for 20 wins or more.
Not too shabby.
X is 14-2 when keeping opponent under 70 points.
5-13 when allowing more 70 or more points

3 point shooting stats for the last 5 games
1) Marshall 3-24 - 12%
2) Goodin 4-23 - 17%
3) Scruggs 10-36 - 28%
4) Castlin 4-9 - 44%
5) Harden 4-7 - 57%
6) Welage 11-19 - 58%

Welage, Castlin and Harden have more 3's - 19 - than Scruggs, Goodin and Marshall - 17.
But Marshall, Goodin and Scruggs have taken 48 more shots.
Marshall leads the team in 3 attempts with 167 but has the worst shooting % at 27%
Goodin is 3rd - 138 attempts (just 3 behind Welage) and has the 2nd worst % at 29%.

Shaka Smart in turning into a one-hit wonder similar to the likes of Andy Enfield and Stan Heath to name a few.
Since his F4 appearance, he has 2-6 in the NCAA since then.
And 4 straight 1st round defeats - 2 at VCU and 2 at Texas.

Good stats 87. Pretty amazing that Steele puts up with Q and Naji jacking up 3’s when they are terrible shooters. Those stats would not bode well in the NCAA tourney

Not going to bode well in the NIT as well.
It's head scratching to me that Marshall and Goodin jack up about 10 3's a game while Jones and Hankins shoot a combined 65% from the floor.
Based on 100 shot attempts and season shooting averages- Jones and Hankins would score 130 points while 100 3 attempts from Goodin and Marshall would net 84 points. Difference of 46 points.
Scruggs still continue shoot 3's. His season avg is 39%.
And Welage needs to get more shots. It's called passing the ball to the teammate that gives you the best chance to score points.

2 early fouls on Goodin
And 4 TO's in the 1st 5 minutes. That's a pace for 32 TO's. Yikes.

Marshall must not be feeling well. He has only taken 8 shots and 4 threes in the first 11 minutes.

Scruggs just picked up his 2nd foul with just under 8 left.
He's not playing well - 0-3 from the field and 1 TO.
Welage 0-2 from 3
Marshall is 2-4 from 3
X is up 1 - 20 to 19

Happy Marshall is 2 for 4 from three point land. However, I would not be disappointed if that is his last three for the game.

Uhhh...someone might to guard Sims.

X has 7 TO's and only 4 assists.
Some "hero" ball by Marshall as tries to drive 1 on 3 .
