Dennis Hammer coasted in for the win by a wide
140 point margin over the 2nd place finisher team of Ron Seymour and Dan
Huffstetler. Ralph Trevino and sons
Nick and Sam did not have a player left in the final game
and had to watch their 2nd place finish this year disappear by a 1 point
final difference in score. Talk about wanting a free throw or two
during the tournament.
First and foremost, he
did this alone with nobody to help him. That within itself is
a big achievement nowadays.
Dennis did not draft a single player from a top seeded team. If
the Final 4 went like it did a couple of years ago where all number
1 seeds made it to the final 4, I would have to think that we would
be congratulating somebody else on winning this year.
Arizona going 4
games and Kentucky 5 games was huge for Dennis this year as he had 5
draft picks from these two teams and they got him 277 points.
Led the tournament
with 79 games played out of his players he drafted for an average of
2.8 games played per pick. When you think about that, 2.8
means you're not only getting on average every one of your picks
into the second weekend of the tournament but then almost a 3rd
games worth as well. The
low team this year was the Noffke team with only 50 total games
played from their draft picks for an average of 1.8 games per pick.
Led the tournament
with a 32 points per pick average. This stat is probably the
best indicator of how you did in the game. As mentioned above,
Hammer led the tournament with 79 games played and then led the
tournament with 32 points per draft pick. Lehman team in
contrast got 74 games played out of their draft picks but only
averaged 20 points per pick. I believe it's a combination of
getting high numbers in both categories to be successful in this draft game.
His 27th round pick
of Shawn Vanzant of Butler played 6 games and scored 48
points for him. Vanzant, picked 266th in the draft, finished
in the top 30 in scoring in the tournament.
Was only one of two
drafters with a positive cumulative total in the +/- calculation
with a + 26 total. In comparison, Matt Krautstrunk's picks
ended up <88> points.
Draft selection of
Jeremy Lamb (pictured below) of U Conn turned out to be
a golden lamb. Lamb a freshman who averaged under 10 points a game
during the regular season scored 97 points for Dennis over 6 games
played for an average greater than 16 a game. Lamb, + 39
points in +/- calculation, was one of the top individual players in
the tournament who scored more in the tournament than the regular
All scoring has been rechecked.
There was one small error with originally giving Matt Krautstrunk's pick
of Markief Morris, 3 points in the 3rd game, he scored 5.
That was all the errors I could find.
