I wonder what the “autobench” philosophies of those teams were…


#449

Ask and ye shall receive!

From KenPom’s 2-Foul Participation Stats: (% of time a starter w/ 2 fouls played in the first half)

  • 2019 Michigan: 1.4% / 345 of 353
  • 2015 Wisconsin: 3.2% / 337 of 351
  • 2018 Duke: 41.5% / 20 of 351
  • 2018 Xavier: 25.4% / 101 of 351
  • 2018 Purdue: 22.7% / 128 of 351
  • 2018 Creighton: 9.9% / 257 of 351
  • 2016 Utah: 11.9% / 246 of 351
  • 2011 Ohio State: 14.9% / 240 of 345

So basically last year’s Duke team never had to worry about foul trouble.


#451

Well, it means that Coach K had very few qualms about playing a starter in the first half after they picked up their second foul.


#452

Right, I was combining both stats. They had among the lowest foul rates in the deacde and he played his starters even with 2 fouls, thus the conclusion that they hardly ever dealt with a player missing time due to foul trouble.

I guess KenPom doesn’t have stats for 4 foul participation rate though,


#453

Oh yeah…duh. I totally knew what you were saying.

(I’m tired.)


#454

Thanks for your efforts! Tending towards autobench but maybe not as much as you’d think.

Here are Michigan’s 2-Foul Participation figures under Beilein:

  • 2019: 1.4%, 345/353
  • 2018: 0.6%, 351/351
  • 2017: 8.8%, 279/351
  • 2016: 3.8%, 323/351
  • 2015: 7.4%, 291/351
  • 2014: 1.1%, 347/351
  • 2013: 1.1%, 347/347
  • 2012: 5.6%, 319/345
  • 2011: 4.2%, 337/345
  • 2010: 15.8%, 210/347

(Data before 2010 not available)

IIRC, that “spike” in 2017 was Beilein letting Walton and Irvin play a bit with 2 fouls.


#457

Makes sense because at that point they were the two best players on the roster and Beilein needed them to play heavy minutes, two fouls or not.


#458

And they didn’t really have backups. As Underwood said last night, it was crazy that Simpson even played two minutes in the Oklahoma State tourney game :rofl:


#459

This is one way to be creative, fun play:


#460

Pretty sure I’ve run that play in NCAA Football 14


#461

Someone tell Carolina that their game against Louisville is already 3/4 of the way over.


#462

early in the game but fsu turns the ball over to much to beat duke


#463

Yep. It doesn’t look like they have the firepower to stay in this one.


#464

I do have a soft spot for Leonard Hamilton though. The way he let the worst free throw shooting team left in the tournament dribble out the last 10 seconds of the regional final only up 4 last year was special.


#465

I think that was a case where the coach told his team ‘don’t foul Duncan Robinson’ and they listened.


#466

FSU with a nice half, up 39-38.


#467

Kenpom 50 K State goes into Iowa State and gets a win. Big 12 is a mess.
