'Superlative Stats.' for Ben Ball

Bruin Basketball Report has put together some really interesting statistics for this basketball season. They are calling it "superlative statistics" which tracks "hustle, toughness, and performance under pressure" for Howland's warriors.  Here are some of the numbers:

Charges Taken
  1. Lorenzo Mata - 8
  2. Alfred Aboya - 8
  3. Ryan Wright - 3
  4. Russell Westbrook - 3
  5. Luc Richard Mbah a Moute -2
UCLA 26, Opponents 14

Dives For Loose Balls

  1. Lorenzo Mata - 16
  2. Luc Richard Mbah a Moute - 8
  3. Darren Collison - 6
  4. Alfred Aboya - 5
  5. Ryan Wright - 5
  6. Russell Westbrook - 4
UCLA 53, Opponents 35

Second Chance Points

  1. Luc Richard Mbah a Moute - 37
  2. Josh Shipp - 32
  3. Lorenzo Mata - 19
  4. Alfred Aboya - 15
  5. Arron Afflalo  - 12
UCLA 142, Opponents 103

Guess that gives us an idea how incredibly aggressive Westbrook is. He is in the top of those two categories even though he to date is logging lot less minutes than other guys on the board. I also thought the numbers on FT shooting was pretty interesting:

FT% Last Four Minutes in Game
  1. Darren Collison - 13 of 14 (.929)
  2. Arron Afflalo - 6 of 8 (.750)
  3. James Keefe - 3 of 4 (.750)
  4. Josh Shipp - 5 of 7 (.714)
  5. Luc Richard Mbah a Moute -2 of 3 (.667)
UCLA 29 of 40 (.725), Opponents 20 of 32 (.625)

There are also categories. Here is the link to that post on BBR.

Those are not so bad for a team that lot of people complain about being a bad FT shooting team.

We will need to dominate those categories to beat up the JustSC this weekend.

Go Bruins!!!
