    Defensive rating or defensive efficiency is a statistic used in basketball to measure an individual player's efficiency at preventing the other team from scoring points. It was created by author and statistician Dean Oliver. The formula is: Defensive Player Rating = (Players Steals*Blocks) + Opponents Differential= 1/5 of possessions - Times blown by + Deflections * OAPDW( Official Adjusted Players Defensive Withstand . This stat can't be influenced by the defense of a player's teammates. Source Teamrankings.com

  6. The staff can not mention names if they are not signed, so there are no specifics. But coach Arth did mention they will explore grad transfers if it is a fit. It was also mentioned there are more walk-ons that will be added, only paperwork was holding up officially announcing them. Stay tuned...

    ESPN+ suggestion: If you are a boxing fan (I used to be), watch the Teofimo Lopez / Diego Magdaleno fight. It was last night, I just watched it this morning.

  14. Zach Guiser Hangs Up the Cleats

    Through a Players' Eyes by Zach Guiser Click above link for full article...."During my senior year, I had to end my playing career only three games into the season. For the remainder of the season, I would walk out on the field in my jersey for the coin toss, then throw on a headset in the booth or on the sidelines and act as an extra coach. It was during this time period that I realized how much perspective matters. I discovered how seeing things as an active member on the field is entirely different from the view you get as an engaged viewer on the outside. From the sidelines, you cannot fully grasp the physical, mental, and emotional toll that the game/practice takes on the players. The most alarming fact was how quickly I forgot what it felt like. In only a few short weeks, I had almost completely lost the ability to empathize with what my teammates were going through."
  15. ESPN3 vs ESPN+

    ESPN+ also has NHL (about 8 games a week) and MLB (last year it was about one game a night).

  17. ESPN3 vs ESPN+

    For members still on the fence about espn+, anybody not happy with their subscription? I like it and recommend. Good content, well organized. On the flip side, if anybody is thinking of subscribing to what used to be PGA Live, now NBC Sports Gold, wait a year. Not sure why the PGA decided to do this, I'm sure it has to do with cost, but the new app has a ways to go to add entertainment and value that espn+ offers.
  18. Possible Candidates

    Coach Stroud is headed to Coral Gables with Manny Diaz at the U. Diaz worked with Stroud in Raleigh. Coach Stroud, developed a number of notable players. Back in 2006 when he was at NC State, three of Stroud's linemen– Mario Williams, Manny Lawson, and John McCargo – were first round selections in the NFL Draft. I wish him all the success in the world. One of the top two football minds that I have had the pleasure of knowing, and talking football with at Akron. I visit the Miami area often, and now have a good reason to see a game there.
