After watching several good shooters act like they couldn’t even see the rim on the one end of the floor this week, I decided to put my eyes to the test and see if there was anything to one end vs the other. So i took the first 7 games of this tournament and compared shooting on the left end of the floor (as you watch it on tv, or left if you were looking at the game from the stands looking at the benches on the other side of the court) and compared 3pt shooting numbers for teams on that end vs the other.
This is hardly significant, but I do think it’s a bit interesting and I’m wondering if any players have made mention of having problems seeing on that end vs the other.
The green numbers simply show teams who shot better on the right end than the left from 3, the red would be the two instances where it was the opposite way, and the grey is on where it was equal. At the bottom you’ll see the totals for the week so far.
May be relevant while watching the current game to know that Michigan is 1-4 from 3 this half (on the bad end) after starting the game 4-11 on the good end.
Just bored, can’t wait for this game to start.
