This season, I have really made it a focus to stay on top of all of our statistics (league stats are never accurate unfortunately) and it has really paid dividends for the team and for the focus of our teaching. We are using Hudl for our video storage and editing, GameChanger for keeping track of our season stats, and I have created a few different Excel spreadsheets (see below) that track everything from total possessions, to Dean Oliver's Four Factors, as well as /40 minute stats (which may up to this point be the most revealing on an individual player level). These Excel sheets don't convert well formatting-wise below but if you take a look you can at least get an idea of the types of things we are doing.
What is working?
I really find the Four Factors (Rb%, FT%, eFG% or TrSh%, and TO%) have worked well in a goal setting standpoint as it has hammered out for us some specific goals we want to reach each night ---ie: get to the FT line at least 20x a game and keep our turnovers below a certain number.
Individually I find that the per-40 minute metrics have really helped to make it clear how effective a player is on the court and what they are really contributing while they are out there. There have been some clear things come out in the data regarding players who have a average number of minute but turn the ball over at a high rate, and those who may need more minutes because they rebound so productively. I find it really helps to cut through the natural bias and typical lens through which we see the game as coaches.
If you got this far thanks for reading!
