Arizona Wildcats Productivity Report: A look at Jackson-Cartwright’s production with more minutes


Arizona Wildcats junior guard Parker Jackson-Cartwright with extended minutes produces at a much greater rate than when he plays more than 20 minutes in a game. The numbers in our Productivity Report back that up.

In seven Pac-12 games in which Jackson-Cartwright has played 21 or more minutes, he has a productivity rating of .549. In nine games with 20 or less, he has a rating of only .253, a significant drop off.

In last week’s game against UCLA, Jackson-Cartwright did not start as he did in the three previous games, but he played 27 minutes and his .889 rating was only behind Allonzo Trier’s team-best 1.211.

Jackson-Cartwright’s numbers aren’t always favorable when he plays more than 20 minutes, as was the case in the last game against ASU at McKale Center on Jan. 12. But that was when he was transitioning back into the lineup after missing a month with a high ankle sprain.

He finished with a productivity rating of only .087 in 23 minutes of Arizona’s 91-75 win over the Sun Devils.

In the last four games in which he started in place of the injured Kadeem Allen (pinky) and played the 27 minutes against the Bruins, his productivity rating is .700. He averaged 32.5 minutes in those four games. His season average in Pac-12 games is significantly less at 22.9.

With postseason basketball so dependent on perimeter play, Jackson-Cartwright should see plenty of more opportunities than the first half of this season. He also has the experience over Kobi Simmons that can pay dividends in the Pac-12 tournament and NCAA tournament.

Simmons is in a horrendous slump in his last four games with a negative productivity rating (-.051) in a total of 79 minutes played. His productivity rating has dropped from .465 before the slump to .425 now.

Arizona gives up size with a three-guard starting lineup of Allen, Jackson-Cartwright and Trier, but productivity is productivity. The young Simmons will have his moment to shine as he matures in his career. Jackson-Cartwright’s time is now.

WHAT IS PRODUCTIVITY RATING?:
PP: Productivity Points (Points, assists, rebounds, steals, blocked shots, FGs made, FTs made added together and then subtracted by missed FGs, missed FTs, personal fouls and turnovers)
MIN: Minutes played overall
PR: Productivity rating per minute played (Productivity points divided by minutes played)
