Hog Ball: Arkansas’ Resume [Update 2-15] and Random Stats

Feb 15, 2018

by Chase Gage

 

 

JONESBORO, Ark — The Razorbacks are a game closer to the conclusion of their 2017-18 campaign. How do they stack up against the competition?

When you don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day (or just don’t have a Valentine), you have to figure out something else waste your time on.

I decided to do extensive research on the Razorback basketball team. I compiled a complete chart of their statistics in wins and losses in SEC play. Stats I analyzed were:

  • Full Statistics for our “Big Three” (Daniel Gafford, Jaylen Barford, Daryl Macon)
  • Points in the Paint
  • Turnover Margin
  • Points off Turnovers
  • Bench Points
  • Field Goal Percentage/3PT Percentage/Free Throw Percentage

Thus I have compiled a list of random statistics that may or may not matter towards team success going forward. Some are telling of the styles that help this team win and others that are our downfall. Some may be coincidence and others are just fun to look at.

If you’re a statistical nerd (like I am), you will have a field day with this. If not, well stick around until the end anyway to support local journalists.

I have also updated the Arkansas resume ahead of their showdown with Texas A&M on Saturday. More updates will come as games conclude and we get closer to the NCAA Tournament.
