Let's review the preview so we can see how wrong I am about everything.
What was said about the Missouri Transition period:
- 32% of Missouri possessions (22 of 69) ended in transition (29% for the season), it was in part due to 5 turnovers (23% TO%, 19% on the season in transition).
- Missouri shot 50% eFG%, with a 57% FG% at the rim and 44.4% of their 18 transition points.
- Meanwhile FSU was able to get it going in transition against a depleted Missouri roster with 30% of their possessions finishing in transition while scoring 29 points for a whopping 1.381 points per possession (PPP)
- 5 of those 21 transition possessions (24%, Season: 32%) came off turnovers, including two back court steals.
- FSU shot 8 of 11 at the rim in transition, while turning it over just once in the first ten seconds of a possession and 8 assists (including two assisted transition 3's, 73% transition assist rate)
What was said about the Missouri Mid-Clock period:
- Missouri had 46% of their possessions conclude in the mid clock period and earned 50% of their points in this interval (0.844 PPP)... mostly due to dismal shooting and turnover rates elsewhere
- Missouri hit 2 of 6 at the rim and went 4/12 beyond the arc (50% eFG%, season: 49.2% eFG%) and an additional 9/12 at the FT line.
- 8 turnovers in 32 mid-clock possessions for Missouri to only 4 assists for a 25% Turnover rate.
- FSU made 3 of 8 at the rim and a dismal 30% eFG% from distance and 5/11 at the line, but every made field goal in this period was assisted.
- I was definitely wrong about Trent Forrest racking up a bunch of 3 point assists in the mid-clock period, he had one at the rim and zero on the perimeter. He did however have two transition 3pt assists and three late clock 3pt assists.
What was said about the FSU and Missouri Late Clock Offense:
- Missouri went 2/6 from deep for a 50% eFG%, including several long 3 pointers. Overall eFG%: 28.6%
- Three turnovers (20%) and no points at the rim for Missouri
- FSU was also held to no points at the rim on 3 attempts over 22 late clock possessions, but shot 8 of 11 at the free throw line.
- FSU also shot 4 of 6 from deep for a 100% eFG% and 1 of 3 from midrange. All 5 late clock field goals were assisted but 8 turnovers is the only blemish on an otherwise stellar offensive performance.
What was said about FSU and Missouri's offensive rebound possessions:
- Missouri retained 6 of their 33 missed field goal attempts and 6 missed final FT attempts for a 15.3% Offensive rebound rate. As Michael pointed out, FSU recovered every single block recorded, even if FSU only earned 4 points off those 6 blocks.
- 4 of those 6 did come on missed 3 point attempts but Missouri was only able to turn that into 3 points, all at the free throw line (0% eFG% overall and 42.9% true shooting %)
- FSU was only able to retain 4 of their 28 misses and 4 missed final FT attempts for a 12.5% Offensive rebound rate
- They were quite efficient with those 4 possessions, getting 9 points on a full cycle (not actually a term but: 1/1 at the rim, 1/1 from midrange, 1/1 from 3 and 2/2 from the line)
What was said about Missouri's possessions after defensive rebounds:
- This is an inverted view, so it is more like top right, where a three was hit to start the game.
- FSU allowed Missouri to score 12 points after 7 missed attempts at the rim (1.714 PPP)
- Missouri also managed to hit 4 of 6 three pointers after missed mid-range jumpers and final free throw attempts by Florida State, scoring 15 points on those 12 possessions (1.200 PPP)
- FSU was able to keep them in check from distance most of the night in part due to so many turnovers and a lack of depth wearing on them over the course of the game.
- FSU took 10 defensive rebounds off Missouri's missed 3 point attempts and turned them into 13 points (1.300 PPP). Six defensive rebounds off mid-range jumpers turned into 11 points (1.833 PPP).
What was said about Missouri's deadball turnovers:
- Missouri forced 6 deadball turnovers (8.7%) from which they collected only three points simply due to going 0 for 4 from distance.
- Florida State forced 7 deadball turnovers from which they were able to get 6 attempts at the free throw line (only hitting 3 of those and gaining 5 total points.) The fouls may have mattered more than the points given Missouri's limited depth.
- Missouri recorded 5 steals and turned it over on two of those possessions while hitting 1/1 at the rim, 1/1 from 3 and 0/1 from the line.
- Florida State picked Missouri's pocket 9 times while picking up 8 points with 60% shooting at the rim and going scoreless from 3 (0/1) and the charity stripe (0/3 FT)
What was said about the overall shooting of Missouri:
- 11/22 at the rim (50% FG%)
- 3/12 from mid-range (25% FG%)
- 7/15 from 3pt (eFG%: 70%)
- 18/31 at the FT line (58%)
- 11 turnovers (15.7%)
- 18 of 21 FGM assisted ( 85.7% assist ratio, 8 rim, 3 midrange, 7 deep)
- 50% eFG% overall
- .957 PPP on 69 possessions
- 6/16 at the rim (37.5% FG%)
- 2/9 from mid-range (22.2% FG%)
- 8/24 from 3pt (eFG%: 50%),
- 14/21 at the FT line (66.7% FT%)
- 16 turnovers (21.3% TO%)
- 8 of 16 FGM assisted (50% assist ratio, 3 rim, 1 midrange, 4 deep)
- .783 PPP on 69 possessions
Wait, so what did I get wrong? I guess you can take some mid-range jumpers against this Missouri team. You were right, hillbillycracker. (actually his username)
