From Monkdawg1 on 247. I wan't looking these numbers up. But UGH!
Out of 351 NCAA Div 1 teams, UGA ranks 340th in shot taken!!
Through 16 games, UGA ranks the following on offensive stats:
Total number of FGs taken (number of total shots) 340th in the country
Total Number of FGs Made 337th in the country
FG% - only 247th in the country at .433
In reality, this is mostly 3pt shooting, where we just do not take (or make) enough shots. The NCAA has become a 3pt shooting league; yet we remain mired in the antiquated days of using 3pt shots only as a last resort. On 3pt shooting, we rank:
329th in 3pt shots made,
325th in 3pt shots attempted, resulting in a .322 shooting percentage from 3, ranking 301st in the nation.
However, in the 5 SEC games, we are shooting worse .377.... Not good. First, we cannot get shots off, then, in the SEC, we are shooting worse. Poor combination. Again, the culprit is 3pt shooting, where we rank 13th at just 27.5% from 3.
Also, we rank 9th in assists in the SEC.
Free throws? We are shooting 70% this season (both in all games and in just the 5 SEC games). This is pretty much right on the CMF average in his tenure. But we rank only 10th in the SEC. So, we cannot rely on FTs to pull us out of most games, if they are called evenly. In fact, on average, it will cost us games.
All this results in that we are last in the SEC in PPG for offense - 62ppg. WAKE UP!! YOU GOTTA PLAY BOTH ENDS OF THE FLOOR!!!!
