More Stats

Without computer aid and professional statisticians, there are other sections from the Statisticians’ Manual not included in our level of game in general but was covered in the article.

For example, in Southorn Basketball League, Game Played is recorded while Minutes Played is not. Lead changed, Score Tied, Largest Lead are also generally recorded (when in games with more than a single statistician). Bench Points are not directly explained from the box score pages but would be easily counted since the starting and substituting players are identified on the score sheet.

Below is the sections on the final two pages (page 22 and 23) of the Manual:

GAME PLAYED I MINUTES PLAYED

For statistical purposes a game played is credited to a player anytime he is one of the five active players on court with the clock running and / or when a statistical event is credited.

Minutes played must be kept and recorded either to the second when using a computer program or to the nearest minute in the case of keeping statistics manually.

For showing only full minutes in the boxscore, minutes that include less than 30 seconds should be rounded down and times of 30 seconds or more should be rounded up to the next minute. If a player plays more than zero seconds but less than one minute in a game, then he must be charged with a full minute.

A player who is on the scoresheet but does not appear in a game must be charged with DNP (Did Not Play) under his minutes played.

Examples

1. A1 plays 50 seconds during a game.

If keeping statistics using a computer program A 1 is charged with 50 seconds played. If keeping statistics manually A1is charged with minute played.

2. A2 plays 25 minutes and 10 seconds during a game.

If keeping statistics using a computer program A2 is charged with 25 minutes and 10 seconds played. If keeping statistics manually A2 is charged with 25 minutes played.

3. A12 is on the scoresheet but never enters the game.

A 12 is not charged with a game played, and his minutes played are recorded as DNP.

4. B6 enters the game for the first time. A3 is handed the ball by the referee at the sideline. Before A3 can inbound the ball B6 commits a disqualifying foul on A2.

B6 is charged with a game played, and his minutes played are recorded as 0. B6 is also charged with a disqualifying personal foul, and A2 with a foul drawn.
