Easy Buckets


#1

Got this from the play by play, and included misses. Put down only attempted layups, tip ins and dunks, noting which were not in the halfcourt, where I remember the play.

IMO, this is incredibly revealing. I don’t remember if any of VT’s inside points were the result of a break, but if not, they got 28 points in the paint, on tip ins, dunks and layups. If you take out Battle, and the runout by Frazier(which to me, isn’t really points in the paint) and PSU got 10 inside points. If you go by attempted inside shots, VT took 21, making 14 of them. PSU, not counting Battle and the Frazier runout, took 9 shots, making 5. If you look closely, in the second half, once again x-ing out Battle and Frazier, we got one freakin’ basket in the paint. ONE! It’s almost inconceivable. How could you possibly expect to win playing this way?

There’s no mystery why VT shot better, or why PSU lost the game. It’s not the shooting percentage, it’s the shot selections, and has been all year. Hint: layups are easier to make. You just need to have the toughness to get belted.
