ACC Individual Stats Leaders -- Conference Games Only

Statistics are up to date through this past weekend. Ken Pomeroy's stats glossary has definitions for just about all of the numbers you'll see below. A player must play a minimum of 30% of his team's minutes (about 12 mpg) in order to qualify. Have a look (Wolfpack players are in bold)...

Special kudos to the pure forwards (i.e., non-three-point shooters) who are on the eFG% leaderboard since they don't get the benefit of eFG's adjustment for the value of threes.

Note: An added requirement for the above table is a usage above 20%. I wanted to remove the guys who are efficient mainly because they play small roles in the offense. Keep in mind that efficiency tends to decrease with higher usage.

The above table illustrates how related %Shots and usage tend to be. I was surpised to see that Danny Green takes such a large chunk of his team's shots while on the court. He's only getting about 15 min/game in conference, so I guess he figures there is no time to waste.

I'm a little surprised to see Leslie Visser on this list. She just barely met the minutes requirement.

Gavin Grant has been a better defensive rebounder than Ced Simmons in conference play. Simmons, however, is a much better offensive rebounder than Gavin. Note the guys on both the OR% and DR% lists.

What do you know...the guys who rank 1-2-3 in eFG% also rank 1-2-3 in PPWS.

15Shelden Williams15.5

It's important to keep these turnover rates in context. King barely touches the ball, which makes it pretty easy to avoid turnovers. Most of the league's point guards are well over 20%, but that's not necessarily a bad number for guys who have the ball in their hands all the time.

When he learns of his placement in the above leaderboard, Lee Melchionni will chest bump his teddy bear and slap his dorm room floor.
