"Offensive" Output

My frustration with our offense almost makes me sick. I have to remind myself that this is just a sport, and nobody is stealing anything or dying from it. A look at the KenPom on our team suggests that there are a lot of things wrong with our offense.

In 2011 our turnover percentage (23.2%, 302nd) is atrocious, but this is not a new development: We've never finished the season under a Hamilton-led team any better than 2003 (21.2%, 151st). 3 other offensive abominations stats stick out: 32.5% on threes (251st), 65.5% on free throws (266th), and last and certainly least 10.9% of our possessions end with the ball being stolen (291st).

Throwing out the free throws (ha), look what these aggregate statistics point out:

  • We can't dribble or pass successfully when pressured
  • We can't shoot threes. Chris Singleton is #1 on the team at 36%, but hasn't taken enough threes to qualify for inspection. Deividas Dulkys has taken 114 threes this season, hitting only 39 (34.2%) . Of the 20 players in the conference who have averaged 1.5 threes per game, Dulkys is 19th out of 20 (GT's Brian Oliver proudly reigns over the ignominious 20/20 spot).

Somehow, we're reliving the Rich/Swann/Mims era of FSU basketball.
