Loyal reader holymoly brought up an interesting point on yesterday’s plus-minus post.

Put simply, plus-minus is interesting, but can be evaluated better on a per-minute basis.

I agree. So here’s my plan to tweak this chart going forward. There will be three categories: +/- in each game, +/- for the season and +/- per minute for the season.

And here it is as look at Maryland’s 73-49 defeat of Youngstown State.

Player vs. YSU
Season Per minute
1-Milbourne +3 +16 0.37
4-Dupree +1 +9 0.24
5-Hayes +15 +29 0.62
11-Kim +4 +14 0.41
14-Mosley +12 +26 0.96
21-Vasquez +20 +44 0.75
22-Bowie +13 +27 0.75
23-Pearman 
DNP 0 0.00
24-Tucker +10 +22 0.58
25-Goins +2 +7 0.88
32-Burney +12 +21 1.40
33-Gregory +8 +19 1.06
35-Neal +20 +31 0.84
