    For the 3rd time in the last four games, Michael Frazier II earns MVG in a 67-41 blowout of the Tennessee Vols at the O'Connell Center. Frazier II scored a a team high 17 points on only 8 FGA with 4 rebounds, 2 assists and no turnovers for 79 value credits. Several players were tightly grouped after that with Dorian Finney-Smith coming in second with 9 points and 8 rebounds to earn 55 value credits. Patric Young nosed out Scottie Wilbekin for third with 10 points and 5 rebounds for 49 value credits.

    Team Stats: DEFENSE. That was the story of the game as the Gator's speed and tenacity trumped Jarnell Stokes and Tennessee bulk. The 41-point game total by the Volunteers was 15 points less than their previous season low of 56 points. The Gator defense held the Vols to 27% shooting, 1/19 (5%) from the 3-point line, and an awful 6/13 Assist-to-Turnover ratio. Conversely the Gator offense did well, shooting 48% from the field and only commiting 6 turnovers for the game. This victory extends the Gator's record home winning streak to 26 games.

    MVG was Wilbekin. Not only did he score almost as many points as Frazier, but he held McRae to 5 points on his 19.3 average. Don't know how you work that kind of defensive effort into your formula.

    Agree. The Box Score MVG is based on Box Score statistics. There are not any statistics that give players credit for their defensive value except for steals and blocked shots.

    This is my standard disclaimer on every results report:

    Well I thought Frazier had a much better game than Bama and was the MVP. He finally showed a complete game, putting the ball on the floor, driving the lane, making several sharp passes, etc. The ability to attack the basket can only help his 3 pt shooting.

    Good team win, great defensive effort all around.. It is interesting how posters always give SW credit for his great defense, but rarely does PY get credit. Thought he played well, esp in the second half.

    Scottie not being the MVP by the formula means just one thing:

    The formula needs tweaking.

    This was the point I made after the Alabama game. But this is limited to Box Scores, as Jason notes in the Thread Title ALWAYS, showing that he is a legitimate analytical thinker - requirement for good science - always clearly state your limitations - which are always HUGE outside of Newtonian Physics and Certain simple Chemical experiments.

    I made the pint that points correlate very highly with a players rank on this statistic, and of course, noted that it is almost impossible to come up with a method to show that a player or team defense is actually the determining factor, which is almost always true, unless, of course, you are like Creighton.

    Totally agree with the assessment on Frazier. Driving to the hoop occasionally, will open up the three ball for him. Also he is our best foul shooter, so great to see him get to the line a few times

    Scottie was the MVG for Tenn in the way he ran the team. That is unquestionable.

    Now who gets my unsung hero - sort of - is DFS. He played some "big boy" ball when we had foul trouble. That was huge. And it gives me a better feeling for what we can overcome in the tournament.
