Plus / Minus stats

Several of the fans have indicated they wanted to look at the Plus/Minus stat. I just stumbled upon statsheet.com and dug up the last 9 games (the 10th game was the Minny 3OT game in which statsheet didn't keep a good record, and they also only had Hammons/Terone's +/- in the UM OT game).

Say what you want about Ronnie's poor decision as a PG, but he is actually a Top 3 contribution in +/- (behind only Hammons and Stephens). In fact, his last 4 games as a Boilermaker he was leading the team in +/- and it wasn't even close. His last game as a Boiler in which he has 7 TOs - guess what, Purdue was actually 32 points BETTER with him than without him. Numbers don't lie, and give credit where credit is due.

I'm surprised that it is Stephens and not Hammons leading the team in +/-. I think it just shows how important floor spacing is. Without Stephens, our offense crumbled b/c the defense would be packing the lane. The Nebraska game is a good example: Stephens was in foul trouble and we got blown out.

I am also surprised to see how bad Bryson's +/- is, esp. in the last 4 games. I remember his disastrous outing against Iowa and OSU (in BTT), but I didn't realize it was THAT bad. That is strange b/c Bryson is so competitive (that before the season Painter said he hasn't seen one like that since Kramer). I hope he takes these numbers to heart, fixes his weakness, and returns a much stronger player.
