Plus-minus: Maryland-Bucknell

← return to D1SCOURSE

I love the idea of plus-minus – a stat so simple yet still instructive at the same time.

Put simply: Look at what the scoring margin is whenever a player is in a game. Whatever the margin of a game is times five is the overall total that should be cobbled together.

It’s also a little time-consuming to do by hand, but we’ll see just how long I can keep this going.

Doing this when the subs are listed on the end-of-game book is easy. Well, not easy, but less arduous.

So here’s the rundown from Maryland’s season-opening defeat of Bucknell on Friday. It should really come as no surprise that Greivis Vasquez easily has the best margin on the team:
