IUPUI Team Rankings and Team Leaders

TEAM RANKINGS: IUPUI ranks 3rd in the Nation in FG% (shooting 50.7%, .1 behind Murray State) and 10th in the Nation in 3PT% (shooting 40%). Basketball State has IUPUI ranked at 109th, their RPI ranking is 102. The Jags finished undefeated at The Jungle and 1-2 at Conseco Fieldhouse - their "second home court". 10-0 at home included a being +20.7 in the score column, as opposed to Conseco where they were at 0 (won by 3, lost by 2 and 1 respectively). Neutral court games ended 2-2 for the Jags, getting wins against Texas Austin-Peay and Georgia State by an average of 12.5 points while falling to Auburn and Kansas State by an average of 14 points. There are two remaining games (at North Dakota State and at South Dakota State) where IUPUI looks to tie up any loose ends before the Summit League Tournament. The Jags are set in their #2 seed and are guaranteed a bye Sunday if they can win their first game. The RedZone is currently trying everything in our power to get to the Tournament!
INDIVIDUAL RANKINGS: (Value - National Rank) Points/Game - Robert Glenn (19.8 - 27) Minutes/Game - John Ashworth (32.6 - 275) Field Goal % - Jon Avery (62.7 - 16) Freethrow % - Leroy Nobles (78.3 - 195) 3PT Fieldg Goal % - Leroy Nobles (44.1 - 63) Rebounds/Game - Robert Glenn (6.4 -270) Assists/Game - John Ashworth (5.1 - 44) Assists/Turnover Ratio - John Ashworth (2.3:1 - 34) Steals/Game - Billy Pettiford (2.1 - 29) Blocks/Game - Robert Glenn (1.3 - 144) Efficiency - Robert Glenn (19.2 - x) Effective Field Goal % - Jon Avery (62.7 - 27) Points Per Shot - Robert Glenn (1.30 - x) True Shooting % - Robert Glenn (65.9 -28) Points Per 40 Minutes - Robert Glenn (26.4 - x)
Robert has really picked up his point production and shooting percent, where everything else is staying about even - Which isn't a bad thing at all. If they want to be productive and successful in the tournament, they have to keep playing their game - 1) The back court needs to be smart with the ball. Minimal turnovers and smart passes inside. 2) The front court needs to be tough inside and make sure they take high percentage shots. 3) The swing men need to play off of the inside guys, be selfish or selfless depending on how the flow of the game is going.
