Jamie Dixon Playing Hopscotch in a Mine Field

Even though Sam Young is an athletic freak of nature, he has a sweet jumper. He can knock down all the open shots they give him.

Scanning the Stats: Field Goal Percentage Defense

And today we look at the defense. As the old saying goes: ‘Defense travels.’ Kind of an oxymoron of sorts. Defense can’t travel! Defense doesn’t have the ball!
