Update on the "Low-% Runner/Floater/Layups" - KU vs OU


Less activity in the OU game for Runner/Floater/Layups, where the initial driving shot was a bit careless, reckless, or just low-% in general. I counted 6 of them, two earning fouls, which lead to a really small sample size. 2 of the 4 non-fouls were made, and 1 was rebounded by KU, where Wesley got a put-back tip-in. All-in-all, a 75% success ratio on the non-foul shots, and a 83% success ratio overall.

Using similar points-per-possession methodology, we'd end up at 4 points for makes, 2.8 for the 4 FTs, and 2 for the put-back, totaling 8.8 points in 6 possessions - 1.5 PPP.

(Note: this game, there were more "grey area" shots than last. When TT makes a drive, I know his style well enough to make a pretty good guess at whether he had a real angle to the basket or whether he was just throwing it up and hoping. With Releford, though, he's got an unusual style. For instance, one of the fouls occurred with Releford taking off for what I presume was a layup, but he was going full speed and was like 8 feet from the basket - maybe he had a better shot planned, but I had to figure it was not high percentage. I tried to be even - if there was one that looked iffy, I'd call it a "yes" then call the next iffy one a "no". Enough about that.)

As for missed layups, all 3 were rebounded by KU, none resulted in put-backs. More evidence that the point-blank misses are not as harmful as they seem.
