KU vs Buffs: Plus/Minus


Luckily for me, last night's game was the first one I have missed from start to finish this season.  After listening to a few comments on 810 this morning, glancing through Denver's Statistical Rearview, and filling in the plus/minus chart I've realized it had to be a maddening game to watch.  The plus/minus is fairly ugly again, though Cole does dominate (+19).  Brady Morningstar follows Cole with a +8, then it's all the way down to +3 for the next Jayhawk.  Luckily, Colorado is bad and even worse without Burks.  Marcus Relphorde did show up and play a pretty solid game, getting a +9.  The nasty North Dakotan, Austin Dufault ends up at -2.

One of my favorite things about tracking the plus/minus is just admiring Aldrich's line every night.  The guy is just an animal and possibly still underrated by everyone but a few of us and Bill Simmons.  He scored 16 pts on eight field goal attempts.  Marcus Morris has 15 pts and Sherron had 16 pts while taking 14 and 17 field goals each.  Rebounds don't get away from him, he adds in another 14 last night.  Throw in 5 blocks and many more altered shots (VoC #'s aren't published yet) and you have the best big man in the country.  Challenge:  Name one big man  you would not trade for Cole Aldrich. 

  • For the not so fun comments, what the hell is going on with Xavier?  Denver summed it all up pretty well in the comments of his statistical rearview.  He's struggling shooting and struggles when trying to finish around the basket.  On the positive side, he seems to know he is struggling.  He only took 4 shots last night and seems to be rebounding and playing some defense still. 
  • Where is The Prophet?  I'm really beginning to worry about EJ, is he in the doghouse or just not good enough right now? Conner Teahan made it in the game.
  • Markieff- learn to make a free throw. 
  • Marcus- learn to dunk.
