I’m on cloud NINE after this weekend! Here’s a breakdown of the plus/minus from the appy state game.
|appy st||Season||Avg +/-||Minutes|
Green is head and shoulders above the rest of the team in plus/minus. His worth, if it wasn’t already apparent via your eyes watching the games, also shows up on the stat sheet. Brown had a rough go of it against appalachian state but he’s been solid this year. As has Eddie (although he had a bad +/- against unc-g despite his huge scoring effort).
The surprise is Barksdale — he has had a solid +/- most of the year despite struggling to score. C.J. had a solid game against the mountaineers though. He had a season high 10 points, 7 rebounds, and 2 assists, and really picked up the slack for Raines who was in foul trouble. He runs all over the court on defense helping double in the post and on screens on the perimeter flashing out on the guard coming off the pick. C.J.’s +/- should be around +7 per game based on the number of minutes he plays, but instead it is +11.4. That tells you something is going right when he’s on the court. So while he has struggled on offense early on, he is still playing well in my opinion.
