Boys Basketball Stats


My statistics professor in college walked into the room the first day of class and told us that you could make numbers say anything you want.  Overall I would tend to agree with her.  Yes sometimes numbers are cut and dry, and leave little room for interpretation, but there are times five people look at a series of numbers and draw five different conclusions.

Let’s take the Mechanicville Red Raiders for example.  They’re seventh out of the eight league teams in scoring putting 49.3 points on the board nightly.  Looking at those numbers you would think the Raiders might be struggling this year, but currently Mechanicville is riding an eight game winning streak and remain undefeated in league play.

The other important number in the equation is obviously the opposite end of the floor where the Raiders hold opponents to under 47 points per, the best in the Wasaren.

Those who think,”The best defense is a good offense”, might say Mechanicville doesn’t score enough. I would tell you some nights the jumpers not falling  and if you want to win, learn how to guard.

Hope you like the numbers.
