San Diego State Team Defense Preview





They have an elite level defense and fans may not appreciate it because they get so fixated on scoring, dunks, and drama, but this defense is as good as it gets right now. This analysis would be woefully incomplete without going into further detail aside from just a defensive efficiency rating. Stopping ball movement is a problem for this offense. Backdoor cuts and kick out three point shots can be had against them. Maybe, they do a good job stopping the dribble drive? Their ability to create live ball turnovers is above average.

This is a decent defensive team that is able to force some bad shots. Opponents like to shoot three point shots against them, among the highest three point shot attempt rates in the conference. They are an average team when it comes to the shot quality of the three point shots of their opposition. They are doing a great job forcing terrible mid-range shots, they are among the leaders in the country at keeping opponents from getting optimal looks at the basket. Nothing will blow you away about their ability to block shots. This is an elite level defensive rebounding team. Falling more than two standard deviations from the mean, this is impressive and indicative of a team that should have more on the horizon.

San Diego State Team Offense Preview

Getting excited about an offensive efficiency of 111.3 is going a bit overboard with an above-average offense. And nothing more than that. Now that we know what the overall offense looks like, it is time to understand why this offense is the way it is. They like to use ball movement to set up shot attempts in two point range. They do an above average job protecting the basketball and making decisions on offense.

Their Effective Field Goal Rate is 0.535, which considered to be slightly above average. Their True Shooting Percentage is 0.563 which considered to be slightly above average. They attempt 0.425 of their shots from three point range. They fall right around average in College Basketball. They made 0.381 of their shots from three point range. They are an above average three point shooting team. Getting to the Free Throw Line is a neutral part of the offensive mindset and approach. They made 0.706 of their shots from the Free Throw Line. They would be considered below average from the charity stripe. They successfully retrieved 30.9% of their missed shots. They are a slightly above average rebounding team.

Fresno State Team Defense Preview

You should not have high expectations, this is a rather average defense. This analysis would be woefully incomplete without going into further detail aside from just a defensive efficiency rating. Defensively, they are above average at stifling opponent ball movement. Opponents are a little bit disjointed against them. Nothing will blow you away about their ability to force live ball turnovers.

This is a decent defensive team that is able to force some bad shots. There is greater diversity of shot selection against them. Not a team that faces a heavy barrage of three point shots. They feature a decent perimeter defense that is able to force some bad three point shots. This is a decent interior defense or schemed defense that is able to force more mid-range shots. Nothing will blow you away about their ability to block shots. Their defensive rebounding is above average relative to other teams.

Fresno State Team Offense Preview





Their offensive efficiency is 98.9, which makes them a below average offense and that means there is room for improvement, but will they actually improve? Now that we know what the overall offense looks like, it is time to understand why this offense is the way it is. Ball movement is not important at all in this offense when setting up two point shot attempts. The struggles with turnovers are a problem for this offense.

Their Effective Field Goal Rate is 0.494, which considered to be below average. Their True Shooting Percentage is 0.524 which considered to be below average. They attempt 0.376 of their shots from three point range. They fall right around average in College Basketball. They made 0.304 of their shots from three point range. This team is dreadful from beyond the arc, they have shooters, but they need makers. They are able to get to the Free Throw Line quite a bit, but they are not necessarily dependent upon it in their offense. They made 0.647 of their shots from the charity stripe. This is a team that will keep opponents in the game when up with a late narrow lead. They successfully retrieved 32.5% of their missed shots. They are a slightly above average rebounding team.
