Gotta make shots, 09-10 Part 4

Here's part 4 of my making shots series (read part 1 here, part 2 here and part 3 here).  This time its a look at the 8 games in class AAAA.

Class AAAA Games
  • Hopkins +15 shot attempts against Forest Lake, won 75-51.  Hopkins loses FG% 46.8 to 45.2 but they win the rebounding battle 44-24, including 19-6 on the offensive glass for a 14-4 advantage in 2nd chance points.  Hopkins forced 18 turnovers in the 1st half to blow the game open.
  • Sibley + 3 shot attempts against Eastview, won 50-47.  Eastview barely wins FG% 42.9 to 42.2.  Sibley 36-19 on the glass including 17-7 on the offensive boards.  That resulted in a 16-5 advantage in 2nd chance points.
  • Eden Prairie + 7 shot attempts against Owatonna, won 61-46.  Owatonna held to 30.8% from the field to 45.7 for Eden Prairie (56.5 to 30 in the 2nd half to break open a 3 point game).  Eden Prairie 15-8 in second chance points and 30-8 on points in the paint.  35-24 EP on the glass overall.
  • Champlin Park +11 shot attempts vs St. Cloud Tech, lost 55-51.  Tech with 26 turnovers for a 26-11 Rebel advantage in points.  Champlin Park shot a dismal 19.2% in the second half (5-26) and still won the half.  46.3 to 30.8 for the game from the floor in favor of Tech.
  • Sibley + 15 shot attempts vs Hopkins, lost 90-82 (2OT).  Hopkins with the state record of 39-58 from the line to 18-24 for Sibley.  Hopkins forces 22 turnovers to win points off of turnovers 19-7.  Hopkins shots 48.1% to 44.8% for Sibley.
  • Eden Prairie + 8 shot attempts vs St. Cloud Tech, lost 62-58.  Tech shoots 38.8% to 36.8% for Eden Prairie.  Eden Prairie 50-33 on the glass for a 15-4 second points advantage.  Tech won points off turnovers 12-0 (15-7 turnover totals).  
  • Eden Prairie + 18 shot attempts vs Sibley, lost 62-53.  Sibley shoots 48.4% to 37.3% for Eden Prairie.  11-30 for EP in the 2nd half.  Sibley wins at the foul line 29-12.
  • St. Cloud Tech + 4 shot attempts vs Hopkins, lost 76-56.  Hopkins shoots 46.6% to 35.5% for Tech.  Hopkins also wins at the line 19-7. 
Out of 8 class AAAA games where a team had more shot attempts, the team with more shots won the 1st 3 games of the tourney and then lost the last 5.  The team with the higher shooting percentage was 6-2.

So when you add it all up across the 4 classes here are the final results for the 2009-2010 State Tournament.

The team with more shots finished 14-16 (46.7%).  3 of those wins were by Johnson and you also had the miracle comeback by Braham vs Sibley East.

The team with the higher shooting percentage was 24-8 (75%).
