Beyond The Hype: Analyzing Top 10 Recruits from 2007-11 :: NextCats


Ben Roberts at NextCats put together a fantastic analysis of top 10 freshmen from the past few years. He contrasts Kentucky's recent freshmen to other similarly touted prospects. For example, here's some fun facts about Marquis Teague: Though he’s been criticized for his play so far this season, Marquis Teague actually ranks behind only Wall and Derrick Rose in assists per game among the players on this list. His assist-to-turnover ratio (1.4) also trails Rose (1.8) and Wall (1.6), but it’s better than both Brandon Knight (1.3) and Tyreke Evans (1.1). Through his first 19 games, Teague’s numbers (85 assists, 60 turnovers) are almost identical to Rose’s (84 assists, 57 turnovers) over the same span. Among the top five point guards in the class of 2011, only Texas’ Myck Kabongo (2.0) has a better assist-to-turnover ratio than Teague. Kabongo (5.5) and Michigan’s Trey Burke (4.8) are the only freshmen from major conferences averaging more assists per game than Teague.
