I just took over a new team and have lost two games (against teams I thought I'd beat handily) in which I outshot them by a large margin (percentage, not volume), won the rebounding battle, and still took significantly fewer shots. I'm not sure how my opponent is getting up so many more shots. There has to be something that I'm not taking into account. I figured I'd get crushed on the glass (this is my first zone team), but I'm winning there. I am turning the ball over too much, but not enough to account for the discrepancy.
I'm sure I could go through the box score, record all the events one-by-one, and figure out what I'm doing wrong, but that sounds like work, so I thought I'd ask what I'm missing. The Baptist Bible and Occidental games are the ones that are confusing me, but I'd like to focus specifically on the Occidental second half, just to get something bite-sized.
Here are the relevant stats (from the box score
Number of shots: 35-24 Occidental
Number of rebounds: 17-15 Greensboro
Number of turnovers: 9-3 Greensboro
Number of FTs: 3-3 (each team had an and-one and a two-shot foul. No one-and-ones)
I know the turnovers hurt me, but they didn't hurt me badly enough that my opponents would take 11 more shots than me. I figure if I win the rebounding battle by 2, lose the turnover battle by 6, and take the same number of free throws, my opponent should take 4 more shots than me. They took 11. What am I missing here? And how do I fix it, since I've now lost two games where it looks like I won pretty much every statistical category. Any thoughts?
