Dishin' It

I was updating my tempo-free statistics this afternoon and thought it'd be interesting to take a look at how some of the ACC's point guards are faring. I've got a bunch of numbers here, including (just for the hell of it) per game and per minute stats that do not adjust for pace.

In conference games only:
 AstRate Ast/Gm Ast/40 Ast:TO TO% TO/Gm TO/40

Tyrese Rice 34.4 6.3 6.8 1.9:1 20.8 3.3 3.6
Sean Singletary 33.2 5.8 7.0 1.3:1 26.3 4.3 5.2
JR Reynolds 28.8 4.7 5.7 1.3:1 19.9 3.7 4.4
Isaiah Swann 28.4 4.2 6.3 2.1:1 23.1 2.0 3.0
Ty Lawson 26.6 4.2 7.2 1.1:1 35.9 3.7 6.3
Ish Smith 25.3 3.1 5.2 .76:1 37.0 4.1 6.9
Eric Hayes 23.4 3.3 5.2 1.8:1 25.1 1.8 2.9
Jamon Gordon 22.7 3.8 4.5 1.1:1 23.9 3.5 4.1
J. Crittenton 22.1 4.2 4.8 1:1 27.3 4.0 4.6
Anthony Harris 21.6 3.1 4.4 1.4:1 20.5 2.3 3.2
Greg Paulus 20.1 3.3 4.3 1.1:1 27.0 3.0 3.9
Gavin Grant 19.2 3.0 3.4 .75:1 24.5 4.0 4.6
AstRate = Estimates the percentage of teammates' made shots the player assists on while he is on the court. For example, we see above that when Greg Paulus is on the floor, he assists on one out of every five shots his teammates make.
Ast/40 = Assists per 40 minutes. Equalizes for playing time but not for pace. (Player's Assists / Player's Minutes Played) x 40
TO/40 = Turnovers per 40 minutes.

-- It's not really fair to lump Gavin with these guys, but I wanted an NC State representative and Atsur hasn't played enough minutes to qualify.

-- I would like to direct you to Ishmael Smith's unfortunate line. His assist rate is good, but the turnovers, oh, the turnovers. Six-point-nine per 40 minutes. Making matters worse, Smith is shooting 40.9% (eFG) in conference play.

-- In general, the freshmen--Lawson, Smith, Hayes, Crittenton--are struggling to hang onto the ball. Lawson and Smith in particular are finding out how tough this league can be on young point guards. Lawson at least redeems himself with efficient scoring.

-- Which ACC forward has the best assist rate? Ben McCauley: 20.9%. He edges out Josh McRoberts (18.5%).
