Arizona Wildcats Productivity Report: A look at impressive individual production

[rps-paypal]


Statistical look at how some of Arizona Wildcats’ standouts are stacking up nationally and historically with others …

Lauri Markkanen

Only one time has an Arizona Wildcats freshman led the team in scoring and rebounding. Lauri Markkanen is headed toward joining Derrick Williams with that distinction. Williams averaged 15.7 points and 7.1 rebounds in 2009-10, Sean Miller’s first in Tucson. Markkanen tops the Wildcats with 15.9 points and 7.4 rebounds a game.

Parker Jackson-Cartwright

Parker Jackson-Cartwright missed six games due to injury which puts him below the minimum games played requirements for NCAA and Pac-12 rankings. If he were included in those rankings, Jackson-Cartwright’s 3.88 assist-to-turnover ratio (62 assists and 16 turnovers) this season would rank ninth in the nation and first in the Pac-12. UCLA freshman guard Lonzo Ball leads the Pac-12 and ranks 13th with a 3.49 ratio (136 assists and 39 turnovers).

Kadeem Allen

The senior guard has attempted 15 3-pointers in McKale Center. He has made 10 for a percentage of 66.7. He is Arizona’s top three-point shooter at 51.4 percent (18 of 35), surpassing
Markkanen’s 45.6 percent from long range (36 of 79). Allen was just three of eight (.375) in his first eight games of the season. Since then, he is 16 of 27 from deep (.593) in his last nine games. Furthermore, Allen’s 2.0 made 3-point field goals per game put him below the NCAA minimum for national three-point field goal percentage rankings. Allen would rank seventh in the nation if included.

Dusan Ristic

Dusan Ristic is shooting 64.4 percent from the field in the four Pac-12 games to this point. That number would not be an Arizona record but it comes close to the 69.4 percent Brian Williams made in 1990-91. Williams was 102 of 147 from the field. Ristic has made 29 of his 45 attempts.
