Like many of you, I often listen to the Pure Sweat Basketball Podcast. A few weeks back an episode was posted featured Queen’s University coach, Grant Leonard. In his talk, Leonard discusses a simplified approach to using analytics practically to help your team.
While the topic of analytics ranges far and wide, Grant’s formula is simple: create more possessions than you give your opponents, and take the best shots possible on those possessions.
While I am not a math or numbers guy, I do feel that analytics holds extreme value in our game today. This episode was very helpful to me because of how simple, yet sound, the concepts were.
Below are my notes from coach Leonard’s talk.
