19 Mexico Martinez, Salvador 90.86 26.3% 28.4% 70.0%
20 USA Jones, Tre 90.80 14.6% 9.5% 51.5%

Only three players had a steal rate greater than 5%.

Team Player Min Stl% FC/40
PR Rial, Fabian 39.5% 8.9% 7.6
USA Jones, Tre 51.5% 7.7% 3.9
Mexico Willis, Diego 61.0% 6.2% 2.3

Rial’s 8.9% steal rate is impressive, but he committed a ton of fouls. USA’s Tre Jones put up a nice 7.7% steal rate while keeping his fouls per 40 minutes down at 3.9. While Jones’ lofty steal rate wasn’t unexpected, his team-leading 17.7% defensive rebounding percentage was.

The top 5 defensive rebounders of the championship:

Player Min DR%
Cuassalo, Ignacio 32.5% 26.4%
Shittu, Oluwasimiso 57.5% 25.1%
Brazdeikis, Ignas 47.0% 21.6%
Alvarez, Luis 48.0% 20.6%
Courtney, Liam 30.0% 19.8%

…and the top 5 offensive rebounders:

Team Player OR%
USA Carter, Wendell 20.2%
Canada Shittu, Oluwasimiso 18.4%
Argentina Basualdo, Jonatan 15.5%
PR Natal, Elmer 15.1%
Mexico Alvarez, Luis 12.8%

2018 Simi Shittu and his 7-foot wingspan performed well on the boards as evidenced above, and he further exhibited a strong motor and rebounding skill and effort as the summer continued. Certainly one whose development should be tracked closely.

Finally, a couple of side notes: Free-throw shooting for all players was a poor 60.3% and 3-point shooting was just 28.8%. The offensive efficiency numbers were ugly for most teams (see PDF for detail), with USA being the big exception (111.6… Canada was second best at 92.9).
