I have a very small sample, because I'm only in my third season, but I do have a couple players whose data might be worthwhile. Obviously, these ratings are as of now. Guard C is younger and therefore probably has more discrepancy between what he is now and what he was before.
Guard A: 58 SPD, 46 BH, 97 PER. 47.0% as a sophomore, 47.6% as a junior, 50% through three games as a senior
Guard B: 47 SPD, 54 BH, 83 PER. 44.8% as a sophomore, 47.0% as a junior, 41.6% through three games as a senior
Guard C: 81 SPD, 65 BH, 72 PER. 36.3% as a sophomore, 46.2% through three games as a junior.
If I remember, I'll update at the end of the year.
Update!. A finished with those same BH and PER ratings but 59 SPD. B finished with the same SPD and BH ratings, but 84 PER. C finished with 83 SPD, 82 PER, 72 BH.
Three-point percentages. . .
A: 47.0% as a sophomore, 47.6% as a junior, 49.5% as a senior.
B: 44.8% as a sophomore, 47.0% as a junior, 39.8% as a senior.
C: 36.3% as a sophomore, 38.9% as a junior.
*B and C were starters with distros of 4 (on a 0-6 scale). A was a sub with a distro of 6.
*A and B were set at +2, A was alternated between 0 and -1 depending on the situation.
*A played exclusively SG. B started at SG but backed up the point. C played exclusively PG.
(note: A and B were exclusively SG last year, with B starting. This year, I had my backup PG graduate, so B started backing up the point)
1. Playing the point guard KILLS your three-point percentage, regardless of your other abilities.
2. It's hard to tell whether BH or SPD make a big difference to three-point shooting, because my guy with strong BH and SPD was playing point guard.
