Pac-10 Player Rankings 2.0

December 19, 2010 Columns No Comments

In recent weeks, the Pac-10 has fallen on some tough times. The conference’s 10 teams have dropped 18 games this month, including an 0-2 record against Montana.

One cause for the recent struggles has been poor guard play. Of the six power conferences, the Pac-10’s guards already had the lowest average Total Impact Quotient of 6.2. In the past three weeks, that rating has fallen to 5.8. The Pac-10’s best guard, Trent Lockett, wouldn’t rank in the Big East’s top six.

So with conference play quickly approaching, look for the teams with the steadiest guards to have an advantage. That means Washington State could be poised to surprise some people, with Marcus Capers and Klay Thompson leading the way. The two Cougars are right behind Lockett in TIQ rankings among Pac-10 guards.

Equally important, Thompson hasn’t regressed significantly since the first Pac-10 rankings of the season. Thompson’s TIQ has remained nearly the same while several other Pac-10 guards have seen their TIQ drop by at least three points. That could be a sign of players getting off to strong starts in limited minutes or producing against weaker opponents. As players log more minutes and face tougher teams, it’s harder to maintain the same impact in production. So Thompson’s consistency is noteworthy in a conference marked by inconsistent play.

Check out a complete introduction to the Total Impact Quotient.
