Looking at a few individuals:

Horner %Min ORtg %Poss %Shots eFG% 2FG% 3FG% TO% Pts/40
2007 39.2 112.4 9.9 11.2 66.7 56.3 50.0 24.2 8.4
2008 28.2 80.4 15.3 16.4 40.8 34.8 33.3 23.2 8.4
2009 50.1 121.6 15.1 17.6 57.1 54.1 40.0 12.9 13.7

The Flame bounced back nicely from a disastrous 2008 to put together his finest season at NC State. In addition to re-discovering his shooting touch, he put a huge dent in his turnover percentage and improved his rebounding considerably (didn't put that in the table). A reliable but very sporadic contributor as a freshman in '07, he became a bigger and more consistent part of the offense this season. That he was able to provide such efficient scoring with the highest workload of his career is encouraging.

Whether or not he should have a bigger workload is debatable. Considering his somewhat limited skill set, one that makes him a guy who usually relies on teammates to create scoring opportunities for him, I think his current usage is pretty optimal. He just doesn't strike me as a guy who can handle an above-average amount of work. It'll be interesting to see how much he's asked to do in 2010.

Gonzalez %Min ORtg %Poss %Shots eFG% Ast% TO% Pts/40 Asts/40
2008 60.5 93.2 16.8 15.1 51.3 24.4 31.4 8.9 5.2
2009 37.6 101.3 24.1 19.5 67.2 26.9 36.2 16.4 6.2

Give Javi a lot of credit for working hard and sticking with it even when he wasn't seeing any playing time. His turnaround this season has been astounding. If he could find a way to bring his turnover rate down to a more acceptable level (25% or so), he'd really be on to something.

Macrowave %Min ORtg %Poss %Shots eFG% 2FG% TO% OR% DR% FTR Pts/40 Rebs/40
2008 19.8 120.1 19.3 20.8 58.8 58.8 14.3 7.1 15.6 64.7 18.1 7.5

It turns out the signs were there last season, albeit in a very small slice of action. The importance of his emergence as a heavy-but-efficient contributor can't be understated. Sidney Lowe desperately needed to find some sort of foundation for next season, and fortunately, he did. It's just too bad it didn't happen sooner. 2010: the Year of the Macrowave.
