By the Numbers… Team Comments:
The team’s strengths, on average, were shooting (51.7% to 45.0% eFG advantage) and offensive rebounding (37.4% to 28.8% OReb edge).
Turnovers (17.3% turnover rate compared to 16.2% defensive turnover rate) were especially bad in game 2 (18 turnovers; 26.8% turnover rate), but they rather easily got the win over a poor-shooting Juice All-Stars team whose defensive style forces turnovers and manufacturers steals (23 forced turnovers on the strength of 17 steals in Juice’s first game!).
The team’s only loss came in overtime at the hands of the Eric Gordon All-Stars, 74-73. This was the only game of the weekend in which D1 Minnesota was out-rebounded (both teams had 39 rebounds, but Eric Gordon had an OR% advantage of 33.3% to 30.6%).
By the Numbers… Player Comments:
If you’ve giving out an MVP award for the weekend, it probably goes to McKinley Wright. His ORtg of 111.6 wasn’t as good as some teammates, but he was everywhere. The guard had an OR% of 9% and a DR% of 21%. The only player to have a better weekend on the boards was bouncy forward Jericho Sims. No other player had a DR% of more than 14% besides Wright and Sims.
Wright also carried a usage rate of 28% and an assist rate of 37%, while shooting 55.6% from the field (0/4 3FG, but he converted 62.5% of of his 2FGA).
Not as big of a “name” as others like 2019 Matthew Hurt (122 Ortg; 19% usage), Nate Reuvers (126; 19%), Jericho Sims (105; 19%) and Gonar Mar (80; 18%), Jack Sorenson had a very impressive weekend by the numbers.
Sorenson carried a 136 ORtg along with a 21.4% usage and team-high 25% %Shots. His eFG% of 65.7% also led the team, while the guard’s DR% of 13.6% was good for third-best.
Jack had an assist rate of 23.5% and a turnover rate of just 11.8%. Further, his block and steal %’s, 2.2% and 3.1%, respectively, were solid and even more impressive considering he limited his fouls (1.5 per 40 minutes, easily a team-best).
The team travels to Atlanta next weekend for another round in the Guantlet.
