ASC Scorers, 2011

For some time now, I have wanted to look at who the best scorers in ASC play were this past season. Now, I am going to do it. I am going to base the notion of “best scorer” on three factors: workload, shooting skill, and ball protection. For workload, I am using a player’s shot percentage (Shot%), or how many of his team’s shots he took while on the floor. Most high workloads will be upwards of 25% of a team’s shots while he is on the floor. For shooting skill, I am using true shooting percentage (TS%), which translates a player’s shooting percentages on twos, threes, and free throws into an equivalent two-point shooting percentage. For ball protection, I am using a player’s turnover percentage (TO%), or the percentage of the time a player commits a turnover relative to the number of times he tries to score.

For the player pool, I am removing all players who played less than 40% of available minutes and took less than 20% of available shots during those minutes, resulting in a group of 41 players on the men’s side and 49 players for the women. I am doing this to restrict the group of “scorers” to only those who played significant minutes and were expected to score during those minutes. To generate a player’s scoring rating (SCR), I took a player’s percentage above or below the group average for all three statistics (a Shot% of 26.3%, a TS% of 0.528, and a TO% of 15.6% for the men; 25.6%, 0.486, and 18.1% for the women) and averaged them out. In this way, I think I have a fairly accurate read on who the best scorers were during this past season.
