Since Bryce Alford will apparently be playing point guard at UCLA for four years, it's worth examining how his performance so far compares with other Pac-12 freshman point guards. For the sake of this comparison, I've included all Pac-12 freshman guards averaging at least 2 assists per game, and to make the comparison meaningful, I only use statistics from Pac-12 games.
Here's the list of qualifying freshman (plus Bryce) ranked by EFF. Although Zach LaVine does not play point guard, he qualifies for the list because he is averaging more than 2 assists per game.
What should worry UCLA fans and trouble Steve Alford is that Bryce is the worst of these five Pac-12 (point) guards in three very important statistical categories: assists per game, field goal percentage, and assist-to-turnover ratio. Adding to this the fact that Bryce is the worst defender of the group means that Alford needs to reassess his plans for his son. Settling for mediocrity (or worse) at point guard is a pretty sure way to end up with a team that won't compete for a conference title.
This would be less of a concern if Bryce was being used strictly as a backup point guard averaging 10 minutes or less per game. But with Bryce currently averaging about 23 minutes per game in the Pac-12, he's actually playing more minutes at point guard than Kyle Anderson. The only explanation I have for this is nepotism.
