MSU Basketball Leads Nation in Assist Rate


I thought this might be the case, but it turns out assist rate is positively correlated with effective field goal percentage; teams that share the ball well tend to shoot the ball well. And MSU's assist rate is absolutely wild. With more than 80% of baskets coming with an assist, MSU is tops not only in the nation, but in all of the NCAA going back to 2002 when KenPom began tracking the statistic.
