Mizzou-SIUE: Statistical Rubber Necking

I'm still in OKC, so I saw not a second of this game.  We won't spend a lot of time on this one.  Looks like, if nothing else, this was a nice "take out your hostility on the first chubby nerd you come across" moment for Mizzou...who was needing to feel like the bully again...

  • Great rebounding effort tonight against a clearly overmatched team.
  • Great shooting as well...though it would obviously help to see that kind of shooting against a team with, shall we say, a bit more of a pulse.

EqPts = a take-off of the Net Equivalent Points idea discussed last week.  Taking points, assists, rebounds (offensive & defensive), steals, blocks, turnovers and fouls into account, the team's points are re-distributed to figure out who had the biggest impact on the game itself, instead of just how many balls a player put through a basket.  I can go into detail on the formula if anybody asks, but for now just know that that was the intent.

  • If the Illinois game was a "correction", then...this one undid the work of the Illinois game.  Stuff went mostly right for everybody not named "Lawrence," "Moore" or "Taylor."
  • Way to freaking go, Kimmie English--I know this was SIU-Edwardsville, but...five assists!  Love seeing that...especially in light of another clunker from Matt Lawrence.  M-Law didn't have to do much today obviously...and he sure didn't.
  • Love Laurence Bowers' line.  I'm still kind of wanting to see him get a few more of Safford's and Ramsey's minutes against real opponents, just to see how he does.
  • DeMarre is definitely fitting into an all-or-nothing role.  Against teams with good post defenders, he does next to nothing.  Against lesser teams, he is unfreakingstoppable.  Lucky for us, I guess, there aren't a ton of good post teams in the Big 12.  Georgia's two best players are forwards, but they're only 6'7/220 (Terrance Woodbury) and 6'8/245 (freshman Howard Thompkins).
