Transition

  • Xavier averages no less than 35 % of their points coming at the rim in any time interval, including 35.5 % in transition,
  • Just as notably, Xavier gets 30% of their points in transition at the free throw line (81.1% FT %)
  • 62% of Xavier's transition possessions occur after defensive rebounds. (22% of all Xavier possessions)
  • 61% eFG% on transition 3 point jumpers, with many occuring along the left hand side (free throw line extended).
  • J.P Macura, Kaiser Gates, and Trevon Bluiett have combined for 75 transition 3's.
  • Opponents of Xavier shoot equally well at the rim in transition but are held to 50.3% eFG% from 3 (56.4% eFG% allowed by Xavier's transition defense)
  • Xavier holds down opponents rate of transition by their own offense's scoring rate since getting a good shot up in the first ten seconds is not easily accomplished after an opponent keeps scoring on you

Mid-Clock

  • Xavier is less efficient in this part of the possession, partially due to settling for more two point jumpers since their attempts are blocked at a reasonably high rate
  • 54% eFG% and 31% of Xavier's points coming from beyond the arc
  • Xavier allowed 51.3% eFG% from distance and an overall 39% of points from 3.

Late Clock

  • Xavier managed 55.2% eFG% on their late clock shots from deep and every last three was assisted.
  • Most of Xavier's late clock possessions occur after an opponent scores (15.2% of all possessions are late clock possessions)
  • Xavier holds teams to 47% eFG% on late clock three point attempts, but all made threes by their opponents were also assisted.

After Offensive Rebounds

  • Xavier is pretty good at offensive rebounding, but it is not particularly evident because they hit such a high percentage of their shots and free throws. FSU would probably rank much higher in offensive rebound rate if FSU was a better free throw shooting team (since those are rarely recovered by the offense)
  • Between Kerem Kanter inhaling rebounds and the high efficiency of the free throw shooters, this is just not somewhere you want to foul or give up an easy look.
