Shooting percentage is important, but another stat that I like to look at (and one that is only kept internally, if at all) is posession scoring %. That is, on how many of it's posessions does a team score. For example, the initial shot of the posession might be missed, but an offensive rebound and putback scores on that posession. Or, a shot might be missed, but the shooter draws a foul on the shot and gets to the line for FTs.
Posessions are precious..got to maximize them. Successful teams usually find a way to score when they get the ball.

When something is said about Wes why does someone always say something about him leaving for the NBA? It may happed someday but I doubt it will happen after this season. The thing that will help his stock more than anything is a NCAA birth.

When your guards shoot less than 30% as a group, you will have trouble scoring. The front court shoots about 45%. Do you not want the front court to take more shots. Oh, you cannot get them the ball in good place? Then that is a problem.
