FROM THE "eBA SYSTEM CLINIC"
from the eBA Permanent Clinic 10th. Month Meetings:


About Basketball Assists & Potential Assists


For the eBA Basketball Statistics Creative Analysis the most important pass in Basketball is not the assist, but the pass that leads to the assist.

A Basketball play usually develops with two or three passes before the score.

And the game analyst see plays begin to develop long before they actually happen.

Team's strong inclination for making the right pass early in a possession often leads to an easy shot – even when he doesn't get the assist.


When we speaks about potential assists we are not speaking about those MISSED ones as the assists NOT CONCRETIZED, by example missed assists disappointingly unsuccessful by fouls, bad bounces or missed shot from sure points as under the basket.


Potential assist is the pass to another player, being oneself in a good shooting position, which misses the shot.

For the passer only counts as a possession if the shot goes into the basket.

Had the passer shot the ball himself, it would counts in the direction of possession usage, careless of whether the shot went in.


But when he passes it off to a teammate, the stats register this possession for him as an assist only if the shot goes in: so, the eBA System register for this passer a "potential assist" at the game analysis chapter.


Both, the missed and the potential assists are registered in the eBA System as a game analysis element, not receiving any rate in any valuation rating.

Bench Rules:
A Guide to Success

BENCH RULES shows ten different ways a person can contribute to a team without scoring a single point, or even playing a single minute, on game day.
From superstar down through last player on the bench, the ideas in this book are valuable to anyone who desires to become the best player, teammate and person they can be.

Basketball Statistics Case Studies

This Month Case Study Conclusion:

Dead-ball Rebound or Individual Rebound Case Study


"... In a NCAA game, A1 is dribbling the ball and is fouled by B3.
This is B3’s fifth foul and Team B’s ninth in the half.

B3 argues with the referee and is charged with a technical foul.
First, a designated player, A4, is awarded two free throws without players occupying positions along the lane for the technical foul.
A4 makes the first free throw and misses the second.

Then A1 is awarded one free throw and a possible bonus free throw with players occupying positions along the lane.
A1 makes the first free throw and misses the second. B5 rebounds separately the miss.

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 be credited with a rebound only if the player earned that rebound before the ball was dead.
What happened after the ball became dead and what would have happened had the ball not become dead might be different.

eBA System Statistics Fundamentals:

The statistician should not attempt to decide what would have happened, but should decide only what did happen.
However, if there is doubt about player control, the statistician may assume that there was control.

eBA Basketball Statistical Tracking:

• B3 leaves the game with six fouls.
• Charge B3 with an UNFORCED TURNOVER.
• Two fouls are added to Team B’s total for the half to make a total of 10.
• Charge A4 with two FTAs and credit him with one FTM.
• Credit Team A with a DEAD-BALL REBOUND.
• Charge A1 with two FTAs and credit him with one FTM.
• Credit B5 with an individual CLOSE UNDISPUTED rebound.


This Case Study was presented as every 1st. day of each month, on February 1st, 2012 in our eBA Portal: were sent 846 answers, 98 partial answers and 524 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 !
