UGA basketball by the numbers

Below is a collection of defensive and offensive statistics that Georgia has accumulated so far this season.  They may or may not paint a picture of this team.  Without further adieu, here they are:

DEFENSE

65.6

The number of points that UGA is allowing on defense a night.  The Dawgs are 38th in the nation in this statistical category.

6.7

Georgia’s rebounding margin over its opponents so far this year.  UGA is 33rd in the the country in this category.

38.4%

The field goal percentage that the Dawgs are limiting their opponents to this season, which is 13th best in the nation.

10.4

The number of turnovers that UGA is causing its opposition to make a night.  There are 348 teams that are currently doing this better than the Dawgs.

OFFENSE

6.2

The number of three-pointers that Georgia is making per game; there are 301 teams making more per night than UGA.  However, this number isn’t terribly surprising since Coach Mark Fox seems to have an unwritten rule that no team of his shall have more than two legitimate three-point threats.

347

The total number of free throw attempts that the Dawgs have hoisted up this season. They aren’t getting to the charity stripe at the rate that UGA was when Charles Mann was playing, but Georgia is in the top third nationally in this category.

23.1%

The percentage of points that Georgia is getting from the free throw line; the Dawgs rank 21st in this category nationally.

43.8%

UGA’s field goal percentage, which is 223rd best in the country.

 

4.9

The average margin that UGA goes into the half up by each game.  The Dawgs are only +1.2 points in 2nd half margin.  I suppose they’re a first-half team (see recent Missouri game).

55.9

The number of FG attempts that Georgia gets up per game.  It’s quite a low volume (273rd in country), though not that shocking considering the pace that UGA plays at.

-1.3

The number of extra scoring chances that the Dawgs are getting per game. This stat is calculated by: Offensive Rebounds + Opponent Turnovers – Opponent Offensive Rebounds – Turnovers.  Teams typically get the same number of possessions, but through rebounding, ball handling, and pressure defense, one team can gain more true scoring chances than the other.

7

The number of double-doubles that Yante Maten has already logged this season.
