Kenner League: Stat Summary

Here are the summary statistics from this year's Kenner League, followed by a few notes of analysis. Note that I did miss a few games, so these stats are not absolutely complete. But close to 90% of the games are included in these numbers, so they should be pretty representative. Of course we all know that stats are just one piece of information in assessing performance, especially in a less formal summer setting. It is still, however, pretty interesting to see the kind of numbers our guys put up.

Notes:

- I did not include Riyan Williams stats, because I missed a few of his games, and he played very little in most of his games that I did see.

-The 3 point shooting was not particularly sharp this summer. It was good to see Trawick hit 38%, but the freshmen were not real good from 3.

-DSR's assist/turnover ration was pretty impressive. He played solidly in the point guard role, which is encouraging

-Hayes probably did not play as well as his numbers suggest. But he was so much better this summer than he was last summer. Hopefully he'll be able to be a competent rotational center for us this year, especially on defense

-The freshman all showed significant talent. They all have plenty to work on, but they all bring quite a bit to the table in terms of potential. Peak and (to some extent) Copeland seem ready to make fairly significant contributions right away.

-The "eye test" on Copeland is probably more important than his numbers. The guy is clearly a strong player, he just needs to get stronger and get used to the jump in the level of play from high school. It would not be surprising to see Copeland become a very significant player by the latter portion of his first year

-Peak looks like the freshman most ready to make an impact right from the jump. Again, from an "eye test" perspective - he looks to be a special talent. His ability to attack the basket and finish through/around contact is highly developed. Peak is likely to get significant (20+, maybe even more) minutes right off the bat, he is too dynamic offensively to keep on the bench.

-Cameron is really going to be pinched for minutes, especially as the freshmen develop. He is still largely a one skill player, and that one skill of outside shooting is not really at an elite level. Copeland, White, and Peak are all going to challenge his playing time. And right now Bowen is simply a better player than Cameron as well. Very different skill sets, so there may be a role for each. But it is going to be hard to find playing time for both Bowen and Cameron. My guess is that at some point this season, Thompson will decide on giving one of these guys 10-15 minutes a game, and the other won't see much time at all. Maybe it will be more of a matchup thing (when do we need outside shooting; when do we need athleticism/speed).

-Trawick and Hopkins both played really well this summer. It is so hard to have confidence that Hopkins is going to develop his offensive game. But he was a real solid offensive player this summer - finished around the hoop more consistently, fewer bad turnovers. But he still forces a lot of shots, and that alone supports continued scepticism. Trawick, on the other hand, seemed to continue the solid progression he has shown over his 4 years as a hoya. He looks to be ready to take on a strong leadership role with a really good senior year

-Lineup questions come next - if Josh Smith is truly in "good shape" and ready to return to campus, we have to divide up time among a lot of good players. The most interesting initial question may be whether Peak starts or not, and how much time he gets. DSR, Trawick, and Peak are pretty clearly 3 of our 5 best players. But if they all play together, we are playing small at the 3. I'm sure there will be lots of blog discussion about the lineup in the coming months.

Stay Casual, my friends.
