Do not know about Dr.James, but Wooden certainly would approve
Thanks to Sports-Reference, we have access to the numbers from some late-Wooden teams. In 1973-74, 673 assists on 1,051 baskets. Reminds us what a great, all-around player Bill Walton was - led the team in assists, as well as scoring and rebounding.
ncaam's last post was a perfectly logical conclusion.
Far from perfectly logical Harvard is #2 in assists per fg with a 5-4 record. that stat is a good indication of a team's passing ability, not necessarily its winning percentage, which ncaam/HC70 knows too well. it is just another of his many digs at CBC. That is what is perfectly logical. There is no hatred, blind or otherwise.

ncaam's comment taken at face value without any consideration of a hidden agenda is true. sader1970- What's germane to this discussion is Psychology, not Logic. Some folks' obsession with a hidden agenda.

I'll tell you why-- his post suggests they will have a losing record but should Carmody beat 70's suggested losing record then he would be considered "successful". He can't have that.
It appears only two posters here have clear agendas on this board. Most just want success for the program, regardless of how we get there.
Welcome and Merry Christmas, '13. Post often.
Crossball13...I did not answer you because I don't want to get into a back and forth over issues. I am trying to avoid the back and forth with everyone.
I find many of the stat superlatives to be meaningless. If we finish #1 in the country in assists but have a losing record with a senior-laden team I'm not gonna be happy because of that #1 ranking. As Al Davis used to say, "Jes' win Baby." You don't agree? Feel free to disagree but don't expect a back and forth. (This post being a rare exception.)
I don't respond to many posts because I am employing a judicious use of the ignore button and avoiding back and forths. You are not one of those I am ignoring. I would ignore one poster more but he's one of the moderators so I can't block him.
I think Bill Carmody is an excellent x and o coach. I'm not happy with his recruiting. This year is a cipher class with one guy threatening to hurt our graduation rate. Disgree? Fine, post about it.
