  • The pressing VCU defense resulted in Georgetown posting its highest turnover rate of the year. Almost 2/3 of the turnovers resulted from VCU steals and while the unforced rate was high, it was still lower than the Northeastern game.
  • To compensate for the lost possessions, Georgetown had to shoot lights out from the field....and they did, especially in the 2nd half where the Hoyas posted an incredible 83.3% eFG and 91.3% TS. (Note: Both measures adjust for the additional points from shooting 3's. TS% includes free throws).
  • VCU blocked 15.4% of Georgetown attempts in the first half, but zero in the 2nd half. This also correlated with an increase in Georgetown's efficiency on shots close to the rim, from 43.8% in the first half to 71.4% in the second half.
  • After barely getting to the line in the first half, Georgetown posted its highest free throw rate of the year in the second half.
  • On defense, Georgetown was able to keep VCU away from the paint, with only 16.5% of their shots close to the rim. While I think that this may be biased low as a result of all the foul shots taken by VCU, the close-shot rate is still much lower than Georgetown's opponent's average for the season (32.7%).

Adjusted 3-pt Makes

This doesn't account for shot selection, but can help to calm down everyone's emotional swings by trying to adjust for volatility. A positive number indicates that the expected points were greater than the realized points. Shooting percentages for each player are from the 2012-2013 season when available. Otherwise, the team's 3-pt percentage for the 2013-2014 season is used in the calculation for each player.

GTOWN -6.3 / VCU -0.4 / GTOWN + 5.9

Other Notes

  • Over the holiday, I put together heat maps in the file that I use to produce the box scores. I tried to upload the box score w/ the coloration, but I'm having some issues getting the HTML coding to work. If anyone has any experience with this, please let me know because I think it would be a great visual aid.
  • I'm constructing shot charts for each of the Georgetown players, but CBS Sportsline has only posted shot charts for 2 of the 5 games and so sample size is still too small. I'm really excited to share the results though once we have more data.

Stay Casual, my friends.
