So now that all the games have wrapped up and it is pretty well known who is staying and going from their respective teams, its time to take a look at what the Pac 10 hoops landscape will look like next season. Basically yours truly will breaking down each and every team in semi-comprehensive fashion so that you, the adoring public, will know what to expect for the upcoming season so that you can place your bets accordingly. Anyways, I wanted to explain a few things.
1.) To qualify for key returner/loss status the player must have averaged at least 8 points per game (PPG) ato go with at least a 50+ eFG% or 6+ rebounds per game (RPG) or 3+ assists per game (APG).
2.) eFG% means effective field goal shooting percentage, which is a synthesis of 2 pt filed goal shooting percentage and three point shooting percentage to more accurately refelct the payoff of hitting a three point shot versus a two point shot. More precisely, eFG% = (# of two point shots / total # of shots)*2pt% + (# of 3 point shots / total # of shots)*3pt%. The point is to adjust for the fact that guards tend to shoot at lower percentages than forwards when in reality they may be playing just as efficiently as their front court counterparts.
3.) The first couple articles have already been written and will be put up this week, so if there are any dramatic changes this wednesday (the first day of the late signing period) then you'll have to forgive me for any mistakes. I'll try to adjust the article accordingly.
So that's that. Sorry I haven't been writing as much lately, but sometimes life gets in the way of my one true calling, writing for conquestchronicles.com! Look forward to the first post on Monday.
