UMaine men's AE basketball stats for non conference games

Postby bcbc55 » Sun Dec 31, 2017 10:18 pm

Here are the UMaine men's basketball stats and positions for the stats for their non conference 15 games.

America L'east Conference is the 27th ranked of 32 D-1 conferenced and is ranked 31 of the 32 D-1 conferences in SOS wich is strength of schedule for teams in the conferences.

UMaine men's basketball positions in America L'east Conference non conference games stats count in these stats. Maine was 1-12 vs. D-1 teams.

Maine played 15 non conference game and 2 were against 2 non D-1 team, but all 15 games (3-12) are included in these stats.

Nine teams in America L'east Conference

STATS........POS............NUMBER
Assistpg.......9...............12.6pg
Turnoverspg..8...............15.1pg
PPGoff.........9...............65.7ppg only team under 70ppg
FGmadepg....9................22.9pg
FG%............9................38.8%
3pt%...........9................29.3% only team below 30%
FS%............5.................67.9%
Rebpergame.4.................36.7
2ptFG%.......8..................45.3%
Points Per Min..9...............1.12

Individual. Araon Calixe only Maine player in top 1 to 24 in the following categories:
Ave. PPG 14.6....12th only Maine player ave. double figures
3pt%.......39.4%,,,13th
FS%.........92.5%....1st broke Skip Chappelle's consecutive Foul shot record making 34 in a row and still going
2ptFG%....44.2%....24th
Assists.......2.5......16th not a true point guard really is playing out of position as he is a shooting guard

Maine's goal going into America L'east Conference play would to not finish 9th so that they get into the tourney quarter-finals. Be nice if they could finish 4th to get a home quarter-final game to give them a chance to win a tournament game since they haven't for over 14 years.

Good group of players as people and too bad what some of them have had to go thru the past 3 plus years and some 2 plus years and some 1 plus year and some just so far this year.

The stats above indicate that some changes are necessary to be made and if some things do not change then they probably will finish 9th as the pre-season AE coaches poll predicted.

Proposed needed changes as none of these things have been apparently done in the first 13 D-1 contests otherwise Maine would not be 9th in 10 stats in 6 spots, 8th twice, 5th one and 4th once in the stats listed above in the 27th RPI ranked D-1 conference in the country and the 32lst ranked SOS conference out of 32 D-1 conferences in the country.

1. reduce dependency of the 3 point shot.

2. go inside-outside to get open threes on passes from inside the 3 point line from the block to outside for the 3 and anywhere else inside the 3 point land

3. use more dribble penetration for kick out open threes

4. make sure players square to hoop with feet, hands in shooting position where they want the pass to come on perimeter passes so that they are squared to the hoop when they catch the ball so that they will not be rushed to take the three and if they are rushed then fake 3 dribble penetrate and if no shot off penetration then create for teammate for a three off the dribble penetration

5. play just 8 players

6. Chart 3 point shots so you know how you got the 3 point shot, who took the shot and if they made or missed the shot, this should help to determine how to, when to and who should be taking the threes based on the success rte determined by how gotten and how successful.

Just my opinions to take under consideration from a longtime UMaine men's basketball fan since 1949 and after watching all but the last Columbia game so far this season either in person, on line or on TV. If I didn't care I woudn't take the time to post this material.

Thanks for all your insight here on MBR....I have been a UMaine fan also for a long time and still watch no matter how bad it can be at times. What are your thoughts on Fleming's play this year?...I thought after what we saw last year he would be more of a force for this team. His minutes played, point scored and rebounds are all below from last year and his field goal percentage is not very good.

See red font above. Getting old. You lose credibility with the constant use of this. We all agree that the league isn't great. IT never has been. Time to retire this old and overused adjective.

What thebam said.

AE is exactly what it's meant to be: a regional collection of large, state-funded schools that are of a similar philosophy when it comes to athletics: i.e., not an overly heavy emphasis, particularly financially.

And, how is what's on display not decent college basketball?

Albany has been extremely good as a mid-major program for several years. Stony Brook has been very good.
Vermont was good enough last season to hang with Purdue in the NCAA tournament and is very good again this year.
Binghamton has made great strides and is good this season. Same with UMBC. Hartford isn't bad.

If 55 doesn't like our league, I would suggest he limit his viewing of the game to mediocre high school-level play in our state and refrain from commenting on D1 basketball, of which he knows very little.

aechamps: Happy New Year and thank you for your kind and supportive words. The reason that Andrew Fleming is struggling statistically this year is because he is playing out of position in the so called what little post play Maine has. It is hard enough to play successfully n D-1 let alone having to do it in a position you are not skilled or big enough to play. Last year he played a wing and or low forward this year he is at the top of the circle being the feeder and screener for Maine's so called 3 poit offense and when he does post and get the ball on the block by accident certianly not by design he forces the play and Many times forces bad shots. He gets frustrated at times and this results in needless fouling and forcing passes and dribbling.

He is usually the biggest UMaine player on the floor until 6'9" 245lbs freshmen Mik Antom comes in and it is usually for Fleming so he doesn't even get to play his last year position very much.

Not Andrews fault that he is forced to play out of position, that is on the coaching staff.

It would be interesting to know why he did not play in the second half Saturdy night at Columbia. Was he hurt, ill, or was Walsh upset with him in someway.

Time for some media interviews to ask some questions about Maine's 1-12 play so far this year.

thebam: Sorry you don't like my America L'east. I thought it was appropriate. Lose what credibility here on MBR.

What would you call America L'east then, give me new appropriate name, when it is the 27th ranked conference by RPI in the country and the 31st of 32 conferences in SOS...America Most? If you don't like it, then just don't read the posts about America L'east. It is not old to me. and it is not as old as I am either.

In fact, in the women America L'east Conference it is the 32nd of 32 D-1 conferences in SOS.

This from bcbc55: "Time for some media interviews to ask some questions about Maine's 1-12 play so far this year."

Hey, 55 .. you've got a blog on a newspaper's site. You ARE a media member.

How about you actually attend a Maine game, go to the post-game press conference and ask some question?

Coach, just simply called it America East. That's what it is. You want folks to take you seriously, but you overuse little gimmicks like that non stop and it makes it hard. Call it what it is. America East , and it's not a great conference. It's actually very similar to SEC football. It has about 3 or 4 really good teams at the top, that win the league every year ( 1 of the 4) and everyone else is pretty much an also ran. It may not be much, but it is what it is and it's ours. Should at least ( no pun intended) respect it that much.
