FROM THE "eBA SYSTEM CLINIC"
from the eBA Permanent Clinic 9th. Month Meetings:

About the Basketball Team Defense Analysis


"... As far as you analyze one's basketball team defense, the question any statistician would have to ask is: what does the individual player do to prevent points from being scored ? and what does he do to enable his team to score more points than the other team ?

Steals and defensive rebounds are distinctly important in that context, since each takes a possession away from the opponent.

Fouls are important, since a good batch of the time they directly lead to the opponent getting free throws.

Blocked shots, while interesting for the fans, is of borderline value, since it only decreases the other teams FG%, and does not assure a change of possession.

A plus / minus chart, indicating the margin of points the teams scores in relation to their opponent when a player is on the court, would also be useful, since it allows us to compare individual players to their teammates and to other players around the league.

Getting steals and creating turnovers with a trapping, opportunist defense, getting a lot of deflections and a lot of loose balls, means to annul the opponent transition game, and shows full and continue activity of the defender players.

We know very well those players which strengths are definitely defense and steals.

When they start to get steals in a game, they feel that it picks everyone up and it affects the other team psychologically.

The opposing team becomes scared to bring the ball up against those players and then the stealer's confidence level goes up and it's easier to play and this boosts their offensive game as well.

Also the basketball weight trainers understand that basketball training or basketball weight training must be designed to optimally elevate the vertical jump, speed, and stamina on the court.

This means more blocked shots, steals and successful fast breaks which will translate to more team wins ! ..."

Our January 2012 RECOMMENDATION !
The Father...The Son...and the Sweet Sixteen: A College's Basketball Disaster by Paul Wieland
The Father...The Son... and the Sweet Sixteen:
A College's Basketball Disaster
by Paul Wieland


There has never been a college sports scandal quite like the one at tiny St. Bonaventure University. The school's president was caught fixing grades on a basketball player after admitting him with only a welding certificate from a junior college.

The university had once been a national power in college basketball, and a president with grand ideas for a return to the top corrupted his school's academics to reach that aim.
He also made sure his son was an assistant basketball coach.

In the end, the school's athletic director was the only hero, and the chairman of the university board of trustees committed suicide with his note saying he had "failed St. Bonaventure. " The Father…the Son…and the Sweet Sixteeen " is an inside look at the scandal and how it happened, and a cautionary tale about the venality of big time college athletics.

Basketball Statistics Case Studies

This Month Case Study Conclusion:

Shot Clock and a Desperation Shot Case Study


"... As the shot clock is about to expire, A1 takes a desperation shot. The shot is batted away by B2 just before the shot clock sounds. ...

(a) A5 catches the ball and the referees rule the play dead for the shot-clock violation;

(b) B4 catches the ball and the referees rule the play dead for the shot-clock violation; or

(c) B4 catches the ball and play continues with no shot-clock violation called.
What is the proper ruling and the correct INDIVIDUAL or COLLECTIVE statistical registration according to the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System including the type of the registration ( type of turnover; forced, unforced, individual or collective turnover, good or bad foul; close, long, disputed or undisputed rebound; assist made, potential, missed or double assist; etc. ) ..."


Basketball Statistics Philosophy:

A player should not be charged for a shot from the field influenced by the illegal actions of himself or herself, or any teammates or opponents, unless the shot results in a FGM.

eBA System Statistics Fundamentals:

If the statistician’s opinion is that it is truly a “desperation” shot then there is no a FGA charge. But the statistician must be sure about the previous play situation, before charging a INDIVIDUAL or a TEAM turnover in this case !

eBA Basketball Statistical Tracking:

• In all cases, if the statistician’s opinion is that it is truly a “desperation” shot then there is no FGA, but there is a FORCED ( by the opponent - player or team - defense ! ) TURNOVER, probably charged to A1 or against the Team A depending on the play situation. Because there is no FGA, there is no rebound and no blocked shot.

• In (c), credit B2 with a Deflection and also credit B4 with a UNFORCED STEAL.


This Case Study was presented as every 15th. day of each month, on December 15th, 2011 in our eBA Portal: were sent 972 answers, 46 partial answers and 783 totally correct, that's means including all the options, registrations and qualifications.

A Six Month Free eBA Full Member Registration
was sent to those who submitted the correct answers !
