Here are some things that jump out at me about these stats:
*The Shockers have 11 players that average over 10 minutes per game. The 12th player still averages 8 minutes per game! No one averages 30 minutes per game. So do they even get worn out with all that rest?
*They have 3 players (Wessel, Wiggins, VanVleet) who are better than 40% 3 point shooters. They haven’t taken as many shots as the leading scorers, but obviously you can’t leave them open or they will make you pay. To compare, the Cards have 1 player in that category, and that is Kevin Ware. So there’s that.
