These are 7 of the unluckiest teams in college basketball so far and why they might surge | NCAA.com
Hudson and Kevaughn are mysteries to me. Regression? No Bueno.
Great grind it out game last nite. arky Bench Score: ZERO.
Good D, as usual.
It’s seems like we always end up on these lists of unluckiest teams. Weren’t we dead last on some metric a few years ago?
I don't consider our team "unlucky" at all. Everything that's happened, good and bad, seems earned. Apart from injuries to a couple of guys who weren't likely to be prime contributors, has UF been the victim of flukes I missed?
Ehh, missing open shots time after time after time is unlucky just like converting a 92-foot layup in 2 seconds is luck. When your top producers are playing like your worst players, it's bad luck. They're not bad players as evidence of previous seasons, they're just playing bad.
It has been more noticeable in year’s past where teams would shoot lights out or hit from the free throw line well above their average. Isn’t as noticeable to me this season. Missing more open looks, maybe? But how would kenpom “know” that?
There was a fair amount of crummy luck versus usc.... the overturned intentional foul, some blatant no-calls on Silva including the final play.
The scramble play against MSU that bounced to sparty for a clinching dunk ... unlucky.
The injuries have been tremendously unlucky... but that has spanned years.
I guess the premise of the column is that close games can go either way depending on a couple bounces of the ball. And we have lost some close ones.
Time for some of our players to step up and make their own luck (ahem . . . Mr. Stone)
in my book the injuries over the last 2 years have cost the team way more than the missed shots and/flukey plays, put a healthy egbunu on last years' team and a healthy Chase on this one, we would have a post game with skills we lack that could make an SEC offense a reality
I agree Kevaughn has had some issues at times no doubt, but not even comparable to Hudson's struggles, Barely over 30% FGs, 23% 3pt and 59% FTs
