More Stats for Peacock

I like stats so I thought that I would share some interesting numbers regarding Z. Peacock's progress over the years.  I'm a big fan of what many refer to as advanced statistics and for college basketball I use Kenpom.  Here you will find things such as eFG%, TS%, ORtg, etc so if you aren't familiar with these terms just read this.  It's an excellent site in my opinion.

So, here's a table with some of these interesting stats for Peacock.

The numbers in bold are his career highs thus far.  What I find interesting is that while Peacock's %Min has decreased from last year, his ORtg has increased as well as his eFG%, TS%, and OR%.  His %Poss is about the same thus far, but his %Shots is close to his % from 2008.  As indicated by his ORtg, Peacock has increased his shots without adversely affecting his efficiency.  His DR% is also increasing as is his ARate, but his TORate is also up.

Of course, we are only looking at 16 games this year compared to ~30 for all other years, but I can only hope that his effectiveness will continue to hold and that he will limit his turnovers as the year goes on.  Honestly though, the ACC isn't going to be easy play, so as long as he can maintain those offensive numbers I'll gladly look past his high turnover rate.

Here is a table with common shooting percentages.

FTM-FTA Pct 2PM-2PA Pct 3PM-3PA Pct
2007 27-48 0.56 52-93 0.56 11 - 38 0.289
2008 58-72 0.81 87-157 0.55 12-40 0.3
2009 55-75 0.73 102-222 0.46 6 - 15  0.4
2010 21-25 0.84 53-93 0.57 13 - 27 0.48

As you can see, Peacock is setting career highs in all three categories.  He has almost doubled the amount of shots from beyond the arc and is making that at a better clip.  That alone makes him a very dangerous asset on the court and I surely hope that Hewitt sees this and uses it to his advantage.  It's clear that as of now, Peacock can score from every level - inside, outside, and at the line - and I'm sure it won't be long before other teams start to key in on him.

There's plenty more to find over at Kenpom so I'd be glad to do this for other players.  I hope you enjoyed it!
