We don't often look at how the Syracuse Orange match up statistically in the Big East so let's take the time.
As a team, the Orange remain atop the league in points per possession and are No. 2 in PPP defense behind Louisville. They're also tops in the league in turnover margin (+7.22).
Waiters is fourth overall in steals with 2.26 while Scoop is 24th with 1.39 and Joseph is 25th with 1.35.
Brandon Triche would be third in the Big East in free throw percentage (86%) if he qualified but he's still averaging less than two per game (1.9). Kris Joseph is the best qualified shooter at 78%, 11th in the league. C.J. is 27th at 71% while Waiters is 32nd at 70%. Scoop Jardine is off the charts at 51%, though he swears he'll "make them when it counts."
Scoop is our top field goal percentage man at 50%, good for 11th in the league. Waiters is 21st at 49%, James Southerland is 23rd at 48% and Fair is 30th at 47%.
Of all people, Triche is our best three-point shooter so far, shooting 40%, which is 11th in the conference. Waiters is the only other SU shooter in the top 30 with a 35% percentage.
In closing, the Orange remain better as the sum of their parts. A look at efficiency margins shows they're not the powerhouse they were with Fab Melo, they're still far and away the most efficient team in the Big East.
