Dear Coaches and Readers,

We hope you are enjoying the basketball season as much as we are. This month’s newsletter talks about a hot topic in college basketball this year, the shot clock. The shot clock has a big impact on the pace of the game as you will see in the newsletter. We also added in a little section about some teams having early season success and why.

We also would like to thank the teams who have signed up for our lineup efficiency service. Just because the season has started, it does not mean we are not taking on more teams. If your team is interested in signing up we will happily put together a mid season package for you.

Lastly, if you have any questions on the newsletter, our lineup efficiency service, or analytics in general give us a call or email at any time and we will be happy to help you out.

Group Stats Newsletter Vol. 3 (September)


August Newsletter

As many of you have probably seen while tuning into SportsCenter, training camp has started in the NFL, and one of the widely debated topics is the up tempo style offense being used in the NFL. We at GroupStats are always thinking basketball, so it got us wondering about tempo in our sport. So this month’s newsletter (attached) is the first of a two part series on tempo. In it we talk about some of the misnomers regarding tempo that are heard throughout the basketball world and what kind of impact tempo actually has on ability to score and defend.

We hope you enjoy! Feedback is much appreciated!
