Looking at the season statistics through 29 games, noting Roman and Tank played 24 and 20 games, respectively, I see the following:
Five guys averaged in double figures.  The top seven guys played between 545 and 842 minutes and each of them led in at least one positive category among those laid out in the published statistics.
Joe led in FG, FGA, FT, FTA, FT% and points.
DJ led in minutes, 3FG, 3FGA and 3FG%.
Darnell led in all RB categories.
Tank led in FG% and scoring average.
Roman had the most assists, Tremell the most blocks and Garrett the most steals.
The eye test says we are a balanced team, but the statistics corroborate it.
Giving kudos to the trio who played between 232 and 272 minutes, both Nate and Issa shot over 60%.  Jonah has the remarkable feat of one turnover in 271+ minutes.  Per Ken Pomeroy, Jonah's turnover percentage is 2.0%.  The D1 national leader's rate is 4.3% among those playing at least 40% of available minutes.  Note that Jonah played only 21.7% of available minutes, but it is still impressive accompanying his gaudy 10:1 assist to turnover ratio.
Now let's get a bid to the NCAA tournament!

Some good points! But I don’t know if Jonah’s lack of turnovers is as remarkable as you think it is haha.

Thanks for the stats reviews, Fred.

I decided to take a deep dive into stats this morning, using sports-reference.com as my source.  I'm not even certain how they come up with their various ratings, but it's interesting to look at.   Numbers can be really skewed for guys without a lot of minutes, so I'll list them separately.

Offensive Rating....I'm guessing the average player is around 100-110

1.  Garrett Sturtz............131.0
2.  Issa Samake ............130.3
3.  DJ Wilkins..................122.2
4.  Jonah Jackson..........121.0
5.  Shanquan Hemphill...118.2
6.  Tremell Murphy..........118.1
7.  Joe Yesufu..................116.2
8.  Roman Penn.............111.4
9.  Darnell Brodie...........111.0
10.  Nate Ferguson.........110.0

Deep Reserves:

1.  Jordan Kwiesinski....158.2
2.  Andrew Barrett..........150.4
3.  Okay Djamgouz........104.0
4.  Deven Dahlke............84.6
5.  Bryceson Burns..........69.9
6.  Connor Gholson.........54.1

UrbyJT, I was thinking along the same lines about Jonah. Over the past two seasons his role has been to try to knock down open threes and don’t do anything to hurt the team (take care of the ball, play defense, etc.).

This year it seems if he doesn’t have the open three and he has the ball he just wants to get it back to the distributor, which he has done with just one turnover. He has found the open man for a bucket 10 times. Is it luck or skill that he doesn’t turn the ball over? One could argue he doesn’t have it in high risk situations.

So how did he do last year? In at least double the minutes he played this year, he had a grand total of 10 turnovers. Playing just over 40% of his available minutes (just enough to qualify), he had a turnover rate of just over 7% good for 7th in the nation per Ken Pomeroy.

So we know Jonah loves the three and can take care of the ball reasonably well. He rarely racks up any stats outside of 3FG and 3FGA. He does garner the occasional rebound, assist or foul. He truly has his role.

DUB, Great stuff. I didn’t know they had win shares in basketball, but they look pretty similar to WAR in MLB. The offensive figures are likely pretty rational. I do wonder how they come up with the defensive analysis. There may be some subjectivity as there is with defense in baseball.

Not surprised that Sturtz stacks up so well as he typically fills out the box score and has good efficiency ratings.
