    Spacing, Shooters, & Mismatches

    Thought it was interesting that after losing Royce White from last year that the Iowa State offense has improved their offensive output from a year ago. Not easy to do when we consider that White was a top 20 pick in the draft.

    Having a real point guard helps an offense.

    and that was today's Obvious Statement.

    Also, I noticed from Ken Pomeroy's site today that we are playing at a roughly 2 possession/game increase from last years pace. Kentucky plays at roughly the same pace as us, and EVERYBODY else in the top 30 plays at a slower pace. Thought that was interesting.

    Re: Spacing, Shooters, & Mismatches

    It may be a bit of the Ewing Theory - even though Royce was a dominant player, this year's team has so many more ways to score. Basically all five players on the floor are threats to shoot the ball anywhere from the basket to the 3-pt line, and depending on the match-up are also able to drive to the basket. Many of them are able to create their own shot, and they're all unselfish enough to pass up a shot to give someone else a better one.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Re: Spacing, Shooters, & Mismatches

    This year's guard play is light years ahead of where they were last year. If you go back and watch some of the good KU teams they moved the ball around the parimiter in a similar fashion to what ISU is doing this year. Ball movement and spacing is what allows you to catch a defense in a valunerable position. That is what makes the NBA offenses so good. The players can all make shots but they work the offense to get the higher percentage shots from the better scoring players. Just a pretty thing to watch when it is worked correctly.

    Having a true point guard, and yeah helps we have an awesome coach. We space the floor well and have shooters all over the court. I would love to play in Freds system!!

    We also have really good assistant coaches that have helped develop what we run.

    Nice work although now I wonder how deadly this team would be if Scotty Thug Life was still here and had a chance to play with a real point guard for a full season.

    Good article. I'd add Babb taking it to the hoop is a big addition to our play this year from last year, and Ejim took a big step forward and is more polished than last year.
