StatVideo has been a complete failure. So unless people start pitching in you can stop bitching. With that said, it did allow me to do stats in other places, so maybe it wasn’t a complete failure.
Highlights from Week 8:
Nicky Santore and John Freeborn go toe to toe.
Nicky with 32 pts. on 38 attempts (42.1%), 2.7 pts/gm
John goes for 30 pts. on 35 attempts (42.9%), 2.5 pts/gm
But John Ballz comes in only 4 games and attempts 35, getting 2.8 pts/gm (31.4%)
#1. 5.5 rebs/gm Jules Cornielius
#2. 4.8 rebs/gm John Freeborn (and jay says I’m a one-dimensional chucker)
#3. 4.0 rebs/gm Don Kahler & John Ballzarini
#4. 3.5 rebs/gm Nicky Santore
Andrew Jones may have garnered the ugliest near-tripple double ever: 12 pts, 9 rebs, 11 asstist, while shooting 17.6%. Other notable assisters: Christian (9), Yarrow & John Freeborn (7), Chris Reggiani (6)
Jay Yarrow gets the ugly tripple dip with 10 tos, 12 pts, and 14 rebs. John Freeborn had 9, and Chris Reggiani had 8.
Christian is clearly rookie of the year.In week 8 he almost pulls the quadruple double: 16 pts, 9 rebs, 9 assists, and 10 steals.
Santore bring the D, 5 blocks.
#1. 13.5 – John Freeborn & Nicky Santore tie for 1st
#3. 12.9 – Christian
#4. 11.1 – Jules Corneilius
#5. 10.9 – Ballzman
#6. 8.6 – Andrew Jones
#7. 8.1 – Mike R
#8. 7.5 – Chris Reggiani
#9. 7 – Yarrow (sad)
#10. 5.25 – Don Kahler
StatVideo page now has video for some of week 8. All of week up will be up there by Thursday. No one has attempted to do some stats yet. Will it happen? Stay tuned.
— update —
All of the week 8 videos are up. There was some issue with game 1. But other than that it’s all up.
As much as I love Jay’s ramblings, there is AFBL business to attend to as well. I’ve just launched a new private AFBL StatVideo page. This page will allow everyone to take part in the joy that Don and I have had for years. By joy, I mean pain. You can all now participate in the stat keeping of the league. On this webpage page I will post games in their entirety, so that people can hop on and do some stats. When you’ve completed a game, email me the numbers and I will assemble them with that day’s daily totals. When a day is complete I will post that to the statabase for the world to enjoy. Co-0perative effort, that’s the dream.
I have to say that these videos are huge, The first one from Week 7 is 13 minutes and 30 seconds long (short by AFBL game standards) and is over 110 MBs. High speed connection is a must here. Also, DO NOT, email these links to your friends! My bandwidth is limited, so this is for us only.
OK, enough jabbering – email me for the link, and be a part of the stat solution.
In Jay’s absence the league continued. The bad play was extra bad, and turnout was fair. We even played the controversal 4 on 4 games, instead of the hectic AFBL 5 on 5 people in the lane. The more open feel on court did not translate to better play however. I’m sure the stats will prove that. Highlights? There wern’t many. Lots, and I mean lots, of turnovers. Henderson and myself (John Freeborn) combined for at least 1 per possesion. How is that possible you ask? I have no idea. The game tape tells the tale. Between my throwing the ball out of bounds, or dribbling off my feet, I did have an amzing block on Nicky Santore. That was the highlight of the day. Other than that, it was your standard AFBL fare. Ugly ball that gets slower by the game. I love the AFBL!
