Basketball Registering Stats Referred Questions:
Simultaneous Fouls ~ about Rule 7-5-9

Basketball Registering Stats Referred Questions
"... This a question about a throw-in spot for simultaneously personal fouls:

1) A1 foul B1 and B2 fouls A2. Team A has the AP arrow. Where is the throw-in administered?

2) Same situation but team B has the AP arrow. Where is the throw-in administered.

3) Which are both cases stats-men rules. ..."

Basketball Rule's Fundamental= Rule 7-5-9 includes simultaneous fouls and add a note that the spot for the throw-in is determined by the foul of the team not entitled to the alternating possession throw-in.

eBA Basketball Statistical Registration=
In the case 1, because A gets possession, administer the ball nearest the infraction on B2. No possession change, so only the fouls registration for the statistician.

The throw-in is atof the foul committed by the team NOT getting possession of the ball and the throw-in is administered at the spot nearest to B2's foul.

In the case 2, Team B has the AP arrow: the throw-in is taken at the spot nearest A1's foul.

The eBA Statistical Registration is included in the Encyclopedia eBA - Case Studies.

See in our forum the 'simultaneous fouls' topics and the exposition "Basketball Statistical Analysis" at eBA ONLINE.

All the terms in this answer are explained widely at The Global Basketball Encyclopedia and in eBA ONLINE.

Sunday's Reflexions on Basketball Statistics:
Home & Road Stats ~ the friendly stats-man and the the two Halves

Basketball Statistician's Sunday's Reflexions
Why Jason Kidd averaged 9.3 assists at home and 7.3 on the road. It's why Ben Wallace averaged 3.0 blocks at home and 1.7 on the road. True, players generally perform better on their home floor, but friendly scorekeepers often inflate their home stats. How the eBA Basketball Statistics Creative Analysis controls this situation ?

Most observers of college basketball believe that home teams experience an advantage over away teams. This could be due to an intrinsic advantage for the home team, such as familiarity with the environment and crowd support. Alternately, it could result from an intrinsic disadvantage for the away team, such as the disrupting effect of travel on a team's schedule and routine.

Using a variety of methods, it is possible to express in units of points the home court advantage: during the 2003-2004 Division I men's season, it was registered for home teams a record of 2617-1294-246, meaning that home teams win about two-thirds of their games. For this analysis, the games with overtime(s) are referred as ties.

Home & Road Stats ~ the friendly stats-man

An about the difference between the two Halves of the season... players generally perform better on their home floor, but friendly scorekeepers often inflate their home stats. How the eBA Basketball Statistics Creative Analysis controls this situation ?

Home teams may be, typically, better than away teams. Looking at home-away games during the first half of the season, the game trends indicates home teams often outmatch away teams.

This indicates that in the first half of the season, home teams are in a general and inherent manner stronger than away teams, in a relation of 70-75% of winning percentage.

During the second half, this difference related to the home teams is matched and home and away teams winning percentage are equals to the same degree. This reality brings to the conclusion that winning percentage of home teams concurrently goes down during this time.

Why this difference between the two halves of the season ?

Selected excerpts from the discussions at the eBA Annual Analysis System Clinic Chat about this topic "home & road stats".

Friday Press Clippings:
Lukewarm Heat on Pace for 47 Wins

Basketball Statistician's Friday Press Clippings
From 20 Second Timeout
By David Friedman
Download source here: ' Lukewarm Heat on Pace for 47 Wins " ' by David Friedman

"... It is not a good sign that the season has barely started and Coach Spoelstra already has to implore the Heat players to keep their egos in check. Wouldn't you love to hook Coach Spoelstra up to a lie detector and find out whose egos he was talking about? ..."

"... Looking forward, what James should do now is make sure that he has his priorities in order. James has boldly declared that he joined forces with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh not to win just one championship but to capture multiple titles.

That means that, based on his own publicly stated standard, any season in which the Heat do not win a championship is a failure. Championships are won by defensive-minded teams that understand the importance of selflessness. James is the Heat's best player, so he must set the tone for the Heat to be a defensive-minded, unselfish team. ..."

"... In the absence of conflicting evidence/testimony, I feel quite comfortable saying that LeBron James dedicated himself last season not to leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to an NBA title but rather to creating as much suspense and drama as he possibly could around his impending "Decision."

When his Cavaliers had an opportunity to seize control of their playoff series versus Boston with a home win in game five, James quit and the Cavaliers suffered their worst home playoff loss in franchise history. ... "

"... James seemed to be a self motivated player who was methodically eliminating his skill set weaknesses but the picture that is emerging now is that he is a high maintenance player who is more about style than substance.

Adrian Wojnarowski's report--which to the best of my knowledge has never been contradicted or refuted--that James conducted himself so boorishly and immaturely that Team USA officials seriously considered not putting him on the 2008 Olympic Team is a devastating indictment levied at the league's most physically gifted player. ..."

"... During the offseason we heard a whole bunch of nonsense, including predictions that James would average a triple double this season and assertions that Wade is the team's best player and would lead the Heat in scoring while James reduced his scoring and played like Magic Johnson. ..."

"... Just as I correctly objected to the absurd notion that Kobe Bryant's career should be defined by one game, I disagree that LeBron James' legacy will be automatically defined by the "Decision" or even by the results of this NBA season; however, although it is too early to say that James permanently damaged his legacy it is not too early to say that he has taken some steps in that direction with the combination of his quitting versus Boston followed by the tone deaf way that he handled the free agency process. ..."

Stumbling On Wins: Two Economists Expose the Pitfalls on the Road to Victory in Professional Sports David J. Berri & Martin B. Schmid


Stumbling On Wins:
Two Economists Expose the Pitfalls
on the Road to Victory in Professional Sports
by David J. Berri & Martin B. Schmidt

Don’t they want to win?
Every sports fan asks that question.

And no wonder!

Teams have an immense amount of detailed, quantifiable information to draw upon.
They have powerful incentives for making good decisions.

Everyone sees the results of their choices, and the consequences for failure are severe.

And yet, they keep making the same mistakes over and over again...mistakes you’d think they’d learn how to avoid!

Now, two leading sports economists, David J. Berri and Martin B. Schmidt, reveal those mistakes in basketball, baseball, football, and hockey–and explain why sports decision-makers never seem to learn their lessons. You’ll learn which statistics are linked to wins and which aren’t…and which statistics can predict the future and which can’t (information that just might help you dominate your next fantasy league!).

The next quantum leap beyond Moneyball, this book offers powerful new insights into all human decision-making. Because if multimillion dollar sports teams are getting it wrong this badly, how do you know you’re not?

 • Do better coaches really win more? Phil Jackson versus everyone else

 • The “hot hand ” and other figments of the imagination Enduring myths of on-court and on-field performance

 • How old is too old? Are teams playing too many athletes who are past their prime?

 • Are black quarterbacks underpaid? The curious cases of Donovan McNabb and Brett Favre

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts:
Total Number of Team Possessions Statistics

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
"... This possessions formula ( Field Goals Made + Opp Def. Rebounds + Turnovers + Up to the Line for 2/3 free-throws series ), with the "up to the line" coefficient, was basically created by the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System, because we felt it was a better evaluation of offensive and defensive efficiency than to count stats like total rebounds, or total points scored or allowed or divide the free throws attempts by estimates number of "2" or multiply by "0.4".

About the rebounds formulas, you hear talk about "win the rebound war, win the game" what is in general true, but not always.

The addition of the 3 point shot to the game of basketball causes to re-estimate the value the formula as well.

If in short a team has the opportunity to score at least 3 points on every possession, instead of two, so we have added an additional variable into the equation.

Basketball Possessions Statistical Registration
Photograph: Daylife.com

An additional way of thoughts is that by using FGA as a loss of possession, a possession is lost every time a ball is shot. As a result a new possession starts with an offensive rebound. This works against a good offensive rebounding team because it punishes their Points / Possession evaluation.

To resume this question, as said above, from the moment there is discrepancy between the number of free throws attempted per game so that the FTA/2 or FTA*0.4 is not always an evaluation according to the rules, since on any given night the number of 1, 2, or 3 free throw attempts for each fouled possession will vary.

The eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System uses the exact number of possession ended "up to the line" for 2 or 3 throws as a better measure regardless of the total number of attempts. ..."

Basketball Registering Stats Referred Questions:
Plus Minus no Related to Minutes to Play

Basketball Registering Stats Referred Questions
"... A question about the numbers example at the exposition at the statistics course about the plus minus / rating:
The game was a one point lose ( 87/88 ) and player 1 plays 31 minutes with a net score of 75/72 on court and a plus / minus of +3, meanwhile player 2 plays 9 minutes with a net score of 12/16 and a plus minus of -4.

It is possible to analyze that player 1 would be on court for another minute to win the game ? ..."

No, it's NO POSSIBLE to state that conclusion at all: in the same exposition you read at eBA ONLINE ( 'The Plus Minus Rating Analysis' ), it is clearly indicated the following:

"A situation when a player have a NEGATIVE rating ON court and a POSITIVE while on bench, MUST NOT be lightly analyzed as this player should have been played MORE minutes."

Plus Minus no Related to Minutes to Play
Photograph: National Post


Performing basketball statistics analysis, we must take into account, using the Plus / Minus Ratings that the overall debate about this rate has dismissed the effect of opponent strength, because + / - rate doesn't measure player combinations for the opponents.

On the other hand, there is no way to recognize between players who have good individual but bad team numbers, opposed to players with bad individual statistics but good + / - ratings.

Go Back to eBA ONLINE to read the exposition once again...

See in our forum the 'plus minus' topics and the exposition "Basketball Statistical Analysis" at eBA ONLINE.

All the terms in this answer are explained widely at The Global Basketball Encyclopedia and in eBA ONLINE.

Sunday's Reflexions on Basketball Statistics:
How to Estimate the Points Created and the Player Contribution

Basketball Statistician's Sunday's Reflexions
When we try to come up with a formula that would indicate how many points a player contributed to his team by scoring, rebounding, assisting, stealing , deflecting or blocking: we always reach the same question:

a player may score points because of a rebound or a blocked shot, but what percentage of those points should be credited to the player getting the rebound or blocking the shot ?

How does one define such a percentage ?

It's very possible that a rebound or blocked shot does not lead to a score, so assigning an 'average value' to all rebounds and blocked shot may be inaccurate.

How to Estimate the Points Created and the Player Contribution
Photograph: Stack

So, the eBA Basketball Statistics Creative Analysis System compare with a different value whether defensive rebounds, blocked shot and steals in general, which can 'create' points.

It's possible to go on with this discussion and study the Points Created question at The Formulas !

Selected excerpts from the discussions at the eBA Annual Analysis System Clinic Chat about this topic "points created and the player contribution".

Friday Press Clippings:
The “Hot–Hand” Theory in Basketball

Basketball Statistician's Friday Press Clippings
From The University of Toledo
By Rexanne Bruno, John Reay, Eric Stade and Pat Tarrant
Download source here: ' The “Hot–Hand” Theory in Basketball: A Model Project For Statistics Students ' by Rexanne Bruno, John Reay, Eric Stade and Pat Tarrant

"... Namely, we address the “hot–hand” theory in basketball. According to this conjecture, a player has a better chance of hitting a shot after a hit than after a miss. Of course, the phrase “better chance” is subject to interpretation, and already in the literature several different takes on this phrase have been considered: one may study only free throws for an individual player, or field goals for an individual player or for a team, or attempts that are limited to one quarter of continuous playing, or attempts that may span a whole game
or different games over several days. ..."

"... Entire sequences of each selected player’s field goal attempts (two and three point shots) were recorded, noting whether each shot was made or missed. The raw data for each player thus consisted of a string of 0’s (missed shots) and 1’s (made shots).

Anasterisk (“*”) in a string was used to indicate that a player left the game, and upon his return a new sequence, not considered contiguous with old one, was started for the player.

This was done to avoid the possibility that an A–team member might miss the actual point at which a player returned, and thus might create spurious relationships between shots. ..."

"... Finally, a runs test was conducted on each of the three longest observed sequences: one of 17 consecutive shots by David Robinson of the Spurs; one of 14 consecutive shots by Shaquille O’Neal of the Magic; and one of 12 consecutive shots by Hakeem Olajuwon of the Rockets.

The objective of such a test is to detect an unusually high, or low, number of “runs” in the data, a run being (in our case) a sequence of one or more consecutive 0’s or consecutive 1’s.

Again the conclusion was the same: there was no statistically significant dependence of one shot on the previous one. ..."

"... Even to quite permissive levels of statistical significance, our data do not indicate a dependence of the success of a given shot on the outcome of the previous one. This result is consistent with much of the literature, although some authors have argued that there is evidence of such a dependence.

(Perhaps the lesson to be learned by this apparent discrepancy is that, before using statistics to answer a question, one should make sure that one has asked the question precisely. Again, we found that this particular project led to many discussions that, while pen–ended, were still quite educational.) ... "

"... Beyond the gathering and analyzing of data, and the drawing of conclusions from the game, there are many ideas to be gleaned from the process of completing the above (or a similar) project.

We think it best that students be asked to look up and retrieve the articles themselves, rather than receiving photocopies or the like.

We hope that, by the time they are nearing completion of the project, they would be eager to find what others have written; moreover, beginning (and other) students will learn from this experience of looking up related research articles. ..."

"... Finally, the students might be asked to explain why and how different researchers can come up with opposite conclusions, when looking at (for example) the hot–hand problem.

The students should clearly report on whether these apparently conflicting conclusions are due to statistical flukes in the various observed data sets, or to the measuring ofdifferent quantities, etc.

Questions of this type should lead the students to reconsider their own analysis, and to determine exactly what questions they tried to answer, and what alternative, related questions could have been asked. ..."

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts:
eBA System Non-conventional Statistics

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
"... What follows are some of the non-conventional statistics I include in the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System in order to establish which have the strongest effect on basketball games success.

• Deflections, deflections for turnovers; etc.;

• Defensive penetrations permitted, defensive penetrations stopped (did we stop our man from penetrating in the paint before he shot or gave up his dribble); etc.;

• Assists in paint, assists outside of paint, assists leading to jump shots, assists leading to layups, assists leading to foul shots, and at all these categories, if are they part of fast break or not; etc.;

• Rebounds in traffic, rebounds from free throws; disputed rebounds; undisputed rebounds; close and long rebounds; etc.;

• Shot percentages - location zone of shot, and whether guarded or open; etc.;

• Turnovers - forced, unforced, rule violation turnovers by type (traveling, 3 seconds, illegal lane invasion, goaltending, palming, etc.); etc.;

• Touches - what frequency, where, duration in seconds, conclusion (pass, assist, shot, turnover as a percentage of total touches); etc.;

Basketball Performance Statistical Registration

• Charges made and taken, blocks made and given; etc.;

• Blocks above head, blocks that were steals, fouls on block attempts by each category; etc.;

• Steals occurred causing an opponent turnover, forced by defense ( i.e., causing an opponent 5 seconds out-of-bounds violation, preventing our man from crossing 8 sec line, or guarding our opponents leading to a 24 seconds clock violation ); etc. ..."

Basketball Registering Stats Referred Questions:
Ball is not out of bounds until...

Basketball Registering Stats Referred Questions
"... Player A throws the ball to an opposing player (player B) who is already out of bounds by a few feet ( for a couple of seconds ). Player B catch it in the chest.
Is the ball out of bounds on Player A or B ? Which is the statistical register ? Which type of turnover we register: forced or unforced ? ..."

The ball is not out of bounds until it either bounces or is touched by somebody who is out of bounds, so the touch by B is needed to make the ball out of bounds and it should be on him.

A young statistician or at live stats may wrongly think that it depends on whether if player B had intentions to play at the ball, if so then yes it would be considered to be out of bounds by him. Now if he didn't have intentions to do so then the ball is out of bounds on player A. Error.

Photograph: Stray Light Effect


The rules state that whoever makes physical contact with the ball last then it is out of bounds by the last person to touch the ball, so in that case it would be player B.

eBA Basketball Statistical Registration=
The Player B turnover is forced by the action of Player A.

eBA Encyclopedia Statistics Terminology: Measures of Dispersion

eBA Encyclopedia Statistics Terminology
Measures of dispersion give us an index of how spread your data is around the measures of central tendency.

You can use it to see if your participants’ scores cluster around your average or are spread widely from your average.

It is possible to have roughly equal averages but vastly differing dispersion figures for different groups.

Measures of Dispersion

There are three main measures of dispersion. They are the range , the variance and the standard deviation.

Basketball Statistician's Digest:
October 2010 eBA sketball Statistics Case Study Conclusion

Basketball Statistics eBA Case Study
Different Situations in a Basketball Rebound... Case Study

"... A missed shot comes off the rim and bounces along the floor. A1 is in position to pick up the ball, but B5 gains control. However, B5 fouls A1...

• case a) before either can touch the ball, or
• case b) as B5 is the first to touch the ball, or
• case c) after B5 is first to gain control of the ball, or
• case d) after A1 is first to touch the ball.

What is the statistical registration according to the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System in each one of the given situations, including the type of the registration ( forced or unforced TO; good or bad foul; close, long, disputed or undisputed rebound, etc.) ... ?"

Conclusion:
eBA System Statistics Fundamentals:
A player should be credited with a rebound only if the player earned that rebound before the ball was dead. What happened after the ball became dead and what would have happened if the ball had not become dead might be different.

The statistician should not attempt to decide what would have happened, but should decide only what did happen. However, if there is doubt about player control, the statistician may assume that there was control.

Sometimes there is doubt about whether a player has gained control of the ball before a certain act takes place. In such cases, the statistician should use the following guidelines.
• (a) If the statistician feels there was a possibility of player control, then the play shall be treated as though there was player control.
• (b) If the statistician feels there definitely was not a possibility of player control, then it shall be treated as though there was no player control.

Different Situations in a Basketball Rebound

eBA Basketball Statistical Registration:

• In (a) the ball became dead when the foul was committed. Charge B5 with a BAD Personal Foul and credit Team A with a LONG UNDISPUTED Dead-ball Offensive Rebound.

• In (b) if B5 gained control before the foul, the official will have indicated that the foul was a player-control foul and B5 would be credited with an individual LONG DISPUTED Defensive Rebound and charged with a FORCED Turnover.

If there is no indication of player control, then credit Team A with a LONG DISPUTED Dead-ball Offensive Rebound.

• In (c) credit B5 with an individual LONG DISPUTED Def Rebound and charge him or her with an UNFORCED turnover

• In (d) if the statistician thinks that A1 possibly had control before the foul, credit A1 with an individual LONG DISPUTED Off Rebound.

If the statistician thinks that A1 definitely did not have control, credit Team A with a LONG UNDISPUTED Dead-ball Offensive Rebound.

Sunday's Reflexions on Basketball Statistics:
Some Numbers about Basketball Starters and Substitutes

Basketball Statistician's Sunday's Reflexions
We can find at the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System many references to the starters statistics compared with the substitutes stats.
And also, a reasonable approximation for percentage of minutes played vs. opponents starters and vs. opponents substitutes.

I think it is an important data, from the moment that most games are decided in the first few minutes, not the last few on the contrary to popular belief. Therefore the starters performance should be specially analyzed...

As was said and analyzed in our Basketball Statistics Analysis Clinic, most games are decided in the first few minutes, not the last few on the contrary to popular belief.

Here I translate some lines from the study performed at the eBA System about the topic of starters and substitutes, for the complete analysis go to eBAClinics.com.

...Games Started is a fair first indicator upon which to set an estimate of % of minutes played vs. starters and vs. substitutes. Start a high % of games, make a pretence of a distinctive starter model. ...

Some Numbers about Basketball Starters and Substitutes
Photograph: USK Aiken

...Starters arrive to better stats and they bring them against starters ! Starters who only play a few minutes probably don't play against substitutes much at all. ...

...Starters take more rebounds than substitutes, and so a player's Games Started % ( %minutes vs starters ) should change the status to a proportionate degree the % of rebounds a substitute obtain. ...

... Number of fouls made vary by 50% from high% starters compared with substitutes. The starters render 60-80% of points, rebounds and assists on most teams but substitutes often perform more than 50 percent of the fouls given the deliberate team strategy to use fouls to give from the bench. ...

Friday Press Clippings:
Statistics in sports ~ Basketball, Baseball & Football

Basketball Statistician's Friday Press Clippings
From Mike Kueber's Blog
By Mike Kueber
Download source here: ' Statistics in sports ~ Basketball, Baseball & Football ' by Mike Kueber

"... There are three kinds of lies – lies, damned lies, and statistics. Although attributed to Mark Twain, it was actually British politician Benjamin Disraeli who coined that expression. I don’t think statistics in sports have reached that level of mendacity, but there are often misleading. ..."

"... Statistician Bill James has done more than anyone to make sports statistics meaningful. Starting in 1977, he self-published The Bill James Baseball Abstract, which contains his statistical analysis of baseball strategy, productivity, and effectiveness, and his influence in the baseball world has grown continually ever since.

James has developed countless statistics that reveal a player’s offensive and defensive effectiveness (e.g., runs created and range factor), and he has shown that certain time-honored managerial strategies are incorrect (e.g., when to hit-and-run or bunt).

In 2006, James was named by Time magazine as one of the hundred most influential people in the world (in the Thinking category). He has also been the subject of a profile on “60 Minutes”. ..."

"... As sabermetrics became generally accepted in baseball, it made gradual in-roads into other sports, too, like basketball and football. In fact, I was prompted to write about this subject by a recent Happy Hour with Kevin Brown during which he complained about some misleading basketball statistics.

He thinks scoring, rebounds, and assists should be modified to reflect so many per minute. (I think Kevin’s favorite player doesn’t play a lot of minutes, but generates a lot of numbers in those minutes.)

Kevin also complained that quarterback ratings in football should consider dropped passes and interceptions off of deflections. ..."

"... Whereas Kevin wants statistics to show points per minute, I want show points per possession consumed. You might think that the number of shots taken would fully reflect this, but it doesn’t because it fails count possessions that end in free throws. For example, Kobe Bryan may shoot 4 of 14 and score 14 points because he made 6 of 8 free throws.

According to my statistic, he scored 14 points out of 18 possessions (or 20 possessions if you count his two turnovers). I would be interested in comparing Kobe, LeBron, and Durant with this statistic. ... "

"... Interestingly, football and basketball numbers crunchers use the term sabermetics even though, technically, the term is based on the term, “Society of American Baseball Research.”

In my opinion, managerial hunches has been have been vastly overrated; not much more than an excuse for not doing the necessary study and thinking. With all of the money involved in professional sports, statistical analysis should be a part of Management 101. ..."

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts:
How to Determine Standard Deviations

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
How do we determine where a player who takes 1000 FGA in 2000 Min in a season, stands in terms of standard deviation as compared to the league rate of FGA/Min ?

1) Make the statistical computation FGA/Min for every player.
2) Find the standard deviation of all those values.

And then the formula is:

[ (1000/2000) - (Avg FGA/Min) ] / (stddev)

Also, it is possible to use to use percentiles. Sort all players by FGA/Min, give everyone a rank. Divide the rank by the total number of players in the above sample.

Performing this calculation we must not mistake precision with accuracy. Nonparametric elements like percentiles make no hypothesis that is taken for granted about the shape of the distribution: they are more cautious measures and much less likely to return errors at the the highest degrees.

If you're searching leaders in a category, I recommend you to always use nonparametric measures with a common plan with parametric measure, merely to be sure there are no outliers into your results.

How to Determine Standard Deviations
Photograph: FanPop

The weighted standard deviation doesn't succeed in seizing the unfairness between two players with the same rates in different quantities of playing time. Same rate is as if: that rate and no more. What it would succeed in catching is a significant change between the width of the distributions, having an effect upon the standard scores. The differences between player rates would be involved, but not if they have the same rate.

When analyzing numbers with measures that aren't well fully apprehended, I give preference to study at the numbers from multiple angles. In this case which you propose at your question, I would perform the computations using

1. Percentiles
2. Standard deviation
3. Weighted Standard deviation by minutes
4. Weighted Standard deviation by square root (minutes per game)

and examine and note the similarities or differences of them. There shouldn't be much significant change, but it would be holding the attention if there was.
( Prof. Roberto Azar )

Basketball Registering Stats Referred Questions:
The Closely Guarded Count Continue ?

Basketball Registering Stats Referred Questions
"... When a dribbler is advancing toward the basket area, does the closely guarded count continue ? ..."

First of all, we'll read something about the rule 'Closely Guarded Player / 5 Second Violation':
"A player in control of the ball is closely guarded when an opponent is in a guarding stance within six feet. A closely guarded violation occurs if the closely guarded player, while in the frontcourt, holds or dribbles the ball for more than five seconds. The violation is a turnover to the defensive team."

Here are the differences between the leagues:
FIBA: Player holding the ball for 5 seconds, actively guarded within one metre, anywhere on the court.
NCAA: front court only, holding or dribbling the ball ( not a combination of both actions ) for 5 seconds, within 6'/2 m ( Women: 3' ).
CIS: Player holding the ball for 5 seconds, actively guarded within one metre, front court only.
NBA: No closely guarded rule; Illegal to dribble with your back to the basket for 5 consecutive seconds while you are between the baseline and the free throw line extended.
WNBA: No rule.

Closely Guarded Player / 5 Second Violation

When a dribbler is advancing toward the basket area and the closely guarded rule is in effect, the count continues. The rule is in place anywhere in the front court.

See in our forum the 'closely guarded rule' topics and the exposition "Basketball Statistical Analysis" at eBA ONLINE.

All the terms in this answer are explained widely at The Global Basketball Encyclopedia and in eBA ONLINE.

Sunday's Reflexions on Basketball Statistics:
Thoughts about Losing the Game

Basketball Statistician's Sunday's Reflexions
Lots of stuff to consider when you lose a game. Could be one thing or a combination of things that caused the late game falter.

Rebounding - did you give up second chance shots; did you get any?

Defense - did your players encounter a different defense, more pressure, traps full or half court? Did your defense get lazy?

Did you allow mini runs of 4-6 points and not have an offensive reply - we call those empty possessions. Did you get beat in transition?

Offense - did you continue to attack the basket or settle for jumpers? Jump shooters don't get fouled by the good teams late in the game.

If you decided that a ten point lead was good enough to win the game and pulled the ball out, you may have screwed up your momentum / offensive continuity thinking your lead could hold up.

Foul shooting? Sub patterns - did you have the wrong guys in at the end of the game?

Fatigue will make a player make mental mistakes. So that is possible another thing to consider......

Friday Press Clippings:
Point Shaving in NCAA Basketball: Corrupt Behavior or Statistical Artifact?

Basketball Statistician's Friday Press Clippings
From Temple University
By George Diemer and Mike Leeds
Download source here: ' Point Shaving in NCAA Basketball:
Corrupt Behavior or Statistical Artifact? ' by George Diemer and Mike Leeds

"... Gambling on sporting events has probably existed as long as sports themselves. The founding myth of the ancient Olympic Games surrounds a chariot race that the Greek hero Pelops rigs so as to win the race and marry the king’s daughter.

Now, as then, gamblers have an incentive to insure that they win their bets on athletic events by somehow fixing the outcome. ..."

"... Point shaving typically occurs when one or more participants ensure that his team wins by less than the point spread.1 The point spread is the number of points by which gambling houses expect the favored team to beat the underdog.

Point spreads are a popular form of gambling because they attract bets on games between two unevenly matched teams. A team can lose the game badly, but it can still garner support by gamblers if they can bet that the team will lose by less than the bookmakers predict. ..."

"... The nature of basketball lends itself to point shaving. Basketball is a much higherscoring game than sports like soccer or baseball. As a result, the final point differential is generally much larger in basketball.

The wider differential increases the opportunity for allowing the other team to score or to failing to score oneself without greatly increasing the chance that one will lose the game.3 In addition, unlike football, relatively few points can be scored in any one possession, which limits the ability of a team to make up a large deficit very quickly.

Finally, the large number of regular season games reduces the amount of scrutiny any one game receives. ..."

"... As noted above, point shaving is more likely to occur at higher point spreads. As
the spread increases, it becomes easier for players to satisfy their secondary objective
(winning the wager) without compromising their presumed primary objective (winning
the game). ... "

"... If the evidence of point shaving is a statistical artifact, then regular season games and tournament games should show similar results. Under the null of no point shaving, we would again expect to find heteroskedasticity for post-season games.

If we cannot reject the hypothesis of a constant variance, then we have still more reason to believe that incentives to shave points again effect game outcomes. This time, as the incentives to shave points decreases in tournament play, statistical evidence of point shaving (heteroskedasticity) disappears. ..."

"... We show that point shaving is more likely to occur for regular season games that
have larger point spreads. This satisfies the gamblers who want to fix the game while
minimizing the change that the favored team will lose the game.

Because post-season games receive much closer scrutiny than regular season games, they are likely to be much harder to fix undetected.

Moreover, because post-season games are much more important than typical regular season games, we expect players to be more reluctant to participate in point shaving. Our results confirm this hypothesis.

Our results thus reject the null hypothesis of no point shaving when the incentives to shave points are strong and fail to reject the null hypothesis when the incentives are weak. ..."

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts:
About the Home Teams Winning Percentage

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
Home teams may be, typically, better than away teams.

Looking at home-away games during the first half of the season, the game trends indicates home teams often outmatch away teams.

This indicates that in the first half of the season, home teams are in a general and inherent manner stronger than away teams, in a relation of 70-75% of winning percentage.

Sobre una Correcta Evaluación de la Defensa
Photograph: BC Partizan

During the second half, this difference related to the home teams is matched and home and away teams winning percentage are equals to the same degree.

This reality brings to the conclusion that winning percentage of home teams concurrently goes down during this time.

Why this difference between the two halves of the season ?

Basketball Registering Stats Referred Questions:
Two players which Play in Different Teams and Leagues

Basketball Registering Stats Referred Questions
... How can we compare the shooting performance of two players, when they play in different teams and leagues ? ...

The first way is to compute percentages. Percentages alone can be misinforming, however. For example, two basketball players with the same field goal percentages of .667 can have very different information.

One could have made 44 field goals out of 66 attempts while the other has made 8 out of 12 attempts.

Since the first player has made a reasonably large number of field goal attempts, his percentage is probably to be very firm and equilibrating; however, the second player has made relatively few attempts so his percentage might be unstable more despite equivalent play over the next few games.

Two players which Play in Different Teams and Leagues
Photograph: LIVE

For example, if both players make 2 of the next 5 field goal attempts, their averages would be .648 and .588 respectively.

This is why box scores usually list both the FG-FGA ratio and the percentage after each players' names.

This practice gives a more accurate statistical background of the basketball players' performances.

Another way is participating in the eBA Basketball Statistics Clinic from where I bring the answer for you.

See in our forum the 'basketball statistics comparison' topics and the exposition "Basketball Statistical Analysis" at eBA ONLINE.

All the terms in this answer are explained widely at The Global Basketball Encyclopedia and in eBA ONLINE.
