I know content has been, um, lame this week. I’ll break down the Final Four teams tomorrow. In the meantime, I thought I’d share the breakdown of 2-point jumper percentage vs. 3-point percentage in the tournament.
So far, I’ve been able to create 42 HD boxes during the tournament. The following is the aggregated data for those 42 games.
M - A Pct 2-pt J 465-1410 .330 3-pt J 575-1635 .352
Scoring 2-point jumpers is pretty subjective. The scorer basically makes jumpers anything that aren’t considered layups or dunks and that can be a blurry line sometimes. But it is still fascinating that a 2-point jumper is such a bad value, even if you consider the potential for getting fouled more.
