Facts and Figures

January 16, 2013 - Michael Bleach

HOUGHTON— In an idea I have completely ripped off from ESPN Fantasy Guru Matthew Berry, here are some facts and figures for the Tech men’s and women’s basketball teams. Everything below is 100 percent accurate.

How you choose to interpret the information is up to you.

With only one more sentence of ado and presented without comment...

— Exactly half of Hoyt’s shots have come from three this season.

— On two pointers, Hoyt is shooting 36.7 percent.
