I’m working on getting some pages up with the Dean Oliver-style individual stats. In the meantime, enjoy these recent Lines o’ the Night, won’t you?

A busy night for one of the busiest men in the game this season.
FG 3pt FT Reb Min M-A M-A M-A O-T A F S TO BLK Pts Roy Hibbert 31 8-8 0-0 2-2 0-5 0 1 0 0 3 18 Result: Win. Georgetown 61, Colgate 45.
One of the things about this personal stats venture is that the true value for a guy like Hibbert is discovered. His per-game averages won’t get much attention because he plays 25 mpg for a tortoise-paced team. For instance, compare Hibbert’s opportunities to that of Shelden Williams. Duke plays at a pace that is 16% faster than Georgetown. Williams plays 34% more minutes per game than Hibbert. In essence, the Landlord gets 54% more possessions to put up his numbers. Give Hibbert those opportunities and his 14.4 ppg, 6.6 rpg, and 2.7 bpg become 22.2/10.2/4.2.
Hibbert, like Williams, is a rare shot blocker that isn’t foul prone. Maybe we’ll see him get more minutes during Big East battles.
