Efficiency Ratings: Game 4

Using the NBA Efficiency Rating Formula, MarquetteHoops tracks the best statistical showings of the season.

Using the NBA Efficiency Rating Formula, MarquetteHoops tracks the best statistical performances of the season. Efficiency Ratings: Game 4 A quick way NBA coaches measure a player's game performance is by evaluating his efficiency. In order to find a player's efficiency the following formula is used: ((Points + Rebounds + Assists + Steals + Blocks) - ((Field Goals Att. - Field Goals Made) + (Free Throws Att. - Free Throws Made) + Turnovers)).

For example, compare the following stat lines:
Player A: 17 points (5-of-22 FG, 7-9 FT), 8 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals, 4 turnovers.
Player B: 15 points (5-8 FG, 3-4 FT), 4 rebounds, 7 assists, 2 turnovers

Who had the better game? Using the NBA formula player B, who hit five of eight shots and committed two turnovers registered a +20 efficiency total while Player A who missed 17 shots and had four turnovers had just a +11 rating.
LATEST GAME

Not even an SEC opponent who had been allowing fewer than 50 points per game could stop Marquette's offense as the Golden Eagles torched the Rebels for 96 points. MU was able to jump out to an early lead and never looked back. Marquette was once again able to get easy points in transition off of Ole Miss turnovers and long rebounds. The Golden Eagles quickness has been tough for opponents to handle thus far. MU shot 56 percent from the field and continued to get to the charity stripe, connecting on 33-of-43 attempts.
