Austin, TX (SportsNetwork. Warren Moon Youth Jersey .com) - Intrastate rivals collide Saturday as the Texas State Bobcats hit the road to take on the eighth-ranked Texas Longhorns in a non-conference battle at Frank Erwin Center. Texas State enters the clash with a 5-1 record on the season, bringing with it a three-game win streak. The Bobcats have only dropped an 80-67 contest to Texas-San Antonio, and have since won three straight, which includes a, 81-65 thumping of Prairie View A&M last Saturday. Texas was sporting a 7-0 record on the season before the Longhorns headed to Lexington to tangle with the top-ranked Kentucky Wildcats. Texas dropped the contest, 63-51, which ended the teams unbeaten streak. These two in-state rivals have met on the court 48 times in their all-time series history. Texas enters this 49th clash with a 43-5 record over the Bobcats, with an 85-53 destruction over Texas State occurring last season in Austin. Texas State put on an offensive clinic against Prairie View A&M in the teams last outing. The Bobcats finished the game shooting an impeccable 60.4 percent from the floor, including a 62.5 percent touch in the first half that allowed the team to gain a seven-point halftime advantage - one the Bobcats would not surrender. Emani Gant tallied a double-double with 19 points and 10 rebounds to pace the team, while Jamarcus Weatherspoon netted 14 points and Wes Davis chipped in with 12 and four assists. Texas State took 30 free-throw attempts in the contest, and made 20 of them. When it comes to offense, Texas State has been a distribution of wealth model. Only Gant (16.2 ppg) has a double-digit scoring average this season for the Bobcats, while Cameron Naylor (9.0 ppg) checks in as the next-closest to Gants scoring total. But the Bobcats are still averaging a respectable 69.2 ppg on 48.4 percent shooting, and are sporting a strong defensive effort that has surrendered just 53.8 ppg to opponents. Gant has been a beast on the boards as well, grabbing a team-best 8.2 rpg with another team high in steals (14). The Longhorns did a solid job defensively to limit the top-ranked team in the country to just 63 points on 37.5 percent shooting from the field, but it was a dismal offensive day for the visitors. Texas shot a mere 29.8 percent in the contest, and hit just 4-of-20 from 3-point range in the loss. Jonathan Holmes paced the offensive effort with 14 points, while Demarcus Holland netted 10 points with five assists in the defeat. The Longhorns did exercise their dominance on the glass by outrebounding Kentucky, 42-31. Much like Texas State, the Longhorns have shown they can be overpowering on both ends of the court. Texas is averaging 69.9 ppg this season, and is holding its opponents to 53.9 ppg on just 31.6 percent shooting. Isaiah Taylor owns a 15.0 ppg average, though the guard has been out since the teams third game with a broken left wrist. He wont be back anytime soon for the Longhorns. Holmes (12.9 ppg) and Myles Turner (11.4 ppg) have stepped it up in the scoring department in Taylors absence. Eddie George Titans Jersey .

We no longer approach teams like last years Avalanche club with questions about whether their strategy at even strength - which at least last year, was get out-shot and win regularly - is sustainable for the long-term. The real question is whether teams in these precarious situations can do enough with their current roster to improve on last years performances and hope to mitigate the expected drop-off in point production. Colorados a particularly interesting case for this. The Avalanche may have been treated as a paper tiger all through last year despite their winning ways, but there are legitimate questions about whether player development can stave off some of the expected regression. Optimists point to the collection of young, near-prime talent on the roster which includes Gabriel Landeskog, Matt Duchene and Ryan OReilly. They are three of the leagues better forwards and the team has certainly found their starting goaltender in Semyon Varlamov. Perhaps the most intriguing name on the roster is wunderkind Nathan MacKinnon, who is coming off a brilliant rookie year. The 2013 No. 1 overall pick is an unbelievable combination of speed and versatility and scored at a comparable rate to that of Chicagos Marian Hossa and Philadelphias Claude Giroux last season. Colorado will only rely on him more and his average ice time - which was 17:21 last year - should go up this season. And MacKinnons underlying numbers from his Calder Trophy-winning campaign are fascinating. A good chunk of statistical oddity is tied up in his home and road splits, which were night and day. Like most other players (and teams) around the league, MacKinnon saw a drop-off in his performance on the road. But MacKinnons slide was particularly steep - enough that it should warrant investigation by a team looking to immediately improve their 5-on-5 play next season. To quickly capture MacKinnons drop-off, consider this - no skater that logged more than 500 minutes over the last two seasons saw road depreciation quite like his: MacKinnons Corsi percentage was 18 per cent worse on the road. That was well above the league average, which was about four per cent worse for the same collection of regular skaters. So yes, that drop is a bit out of the norm. Now lets look at a table of some of the other pertinent underlying data for MacKinnon from last season: Im going to touch on most of these metrics individually, but the numbers that should immediately stand out are his team-relative numbers: Relative Corsi Percentage (or the difference in Corsi Percentage a team experiences when a player is on the ice versus off) and Relative Goal Percentage (or the difference in Goal Percentage a team experiences when a player is on the ice versus off). At home, MacKinnon was a positive possession player (3.0 per ceent) and significant plus-goal player relative to teammates (9. Marcus Mariota Youth Jersey. 4 per cent). On the road, MacKinnon was a negative possession player (-3.3 per cent) and floated around the team average in the goal department (0.5 per cent). The raw Corsi For and Corsi Against totals show what kind of trouble MacKinnon ran into on the road. The reality is that MacKinnon and his linemates spent way too much time defending the play. At home, Colorado was +10.8 shot attempts per 60 minutes with MacKinnon on the ice. On the road, that number spiraled to -10.4. The main reason for this insane shot-differential swing is tied up in MacKinnons road Corsi Against per 60 – a number so high, only three forwards (Torontos James van Riemsdyk and Tyler Bozak, and Buffalos Tyler Ennis) finished worse. Those ugly road shot differentials led to even uglier goal differentials, as noted in the Goals For/Goals Against rows. For every 60 minutes played at home with MacKinnon on the ice, Colorado was +0.7 in the goal column. For every 60 minutes played on the road with MacKinnon on the ice, Colorado was -0.6 in the goal column. Its for those reasons that I found MacKinnons zone start numbers in the initial table interesting. While MacKinnon enjoyed some favorable zone start situations on home ice, he was in more of a defensive role on the road. His raw offensive zone start percentages dropped 5.52 per cent and the percentage of offensive-zone draws he took relative to his teammates actually swung into the negatives. The drop in offensive zone starts meant less offensive opportunity immediately following the restart of play for MacKinnon. I was curious about whether MacKinnon was getting burned by a particular aspect of the zone starts beyond just opening more in the defensive zone last year. So I decided to pull out his Corsi Percentage data in the 30-second window following every draw he was on the ice for last year, then splitting by the outcome of that draw (i.e. win/loss) and venue (i.e. home/road). Was it possible that MacKinnons underlying numbers were getting dinged by something immediately off of the draw? Theres not much difference there. I think its safe to say that MacKinnons raw drop in zone starts – combined with a slight uptick in competition, team effects, and the assortment of subtleties that make road hockey difficult for all (e.g. long change, general risk aversion) – were the contributors behind his slide, as opposed to a singular aspect of the game where MacKinnon really deteriorated. The mere fact MacKinnon was able to have such an explosive season as an 18-year-old is enormously impressive; most players his age are shielded altogether from NHL competition and the few who do get minutes generally sink before they swim. MacKinnon may have looked like a boy amongst men at times on the road last season, but the opposite was true at the Pepsi Center. That part shouldnt be ignored. But for now, the MacKinnon question is an avenue worthy of further investigation. ' ' '
