# Inside the stats: Red/Blue game

We are all used to the standard basketball stats, but there are other numbers that tell the story. Point, rebound and assist totals are key, but we'll look at some of the other numbers that can impact the game. The numbers are a bit skewed because of the nature of the Red/Blue game.

+/- is calculated just like the same statistic in hockey. You take the number of points a team scores while a particular player is in the game and you subtract that by the number of points the opposing team scored while the player was in the game. It does not necessarily reflect individual performance or the team performance as a whole, only how the team fared when that player was in the game.

Pts/Min is simply the number of points a players scored divided by the number of minutes played.

Pts/Sht is the number of points a player scores for every shot attempt the player takes. The higher the number the more efficient a player is. Making three pointers and getting to the line increases this number. This is an actual stat that the Wildcat coaching staff pays a lot of attention to.

% of Pts is the percentage of the team's points that each player scored. In the Red/Blue game they switched up the teams so players who played on both teams will have the percentage they contributed for each team listed. Their percentage for the Blue team is listed first and their percentage for the Red team is listed second.

Hustle #'s are based on the old NBA "Hustle Board" that you could see in many NBA arenas. It is simply the total of rebounds, blocks and steals.
