Zebra Statistics

Taunting the Zebras can be dangerous, so we thought it was time to start tracking of refereeing statistics so you would know what to expect from the referees who are working your favorite team's games... Remember that sick feeling you used to get when you saw Lenny Wirtz on the sidelines before the start of a game? Since non-conference games tend to skew things a bit, we will only be tracking stats for conference games.


As time allows, we will try to update team records by referee for all games, and as promised earlier, we will be tracking technical fouls called on coaches.


Here is an explanation of the different columns...

HOME SCORE - Average number of points scored by the home team in games worked by the referee
VIS SCORE - Average number of points scored by the visiting team in games worked by the referee
SCORE DIFF - Average scoring differential between the home team and visiting team in games worked by the referee
HOME FOULS - Average number of fouls called against the home team in games worked by the referee
VIS FOULS - Average number of fouls called against the visiting team in games worked by the referee
FOUL DIFF - Average difference in the number of fouls called against the home team and the visiting team in games worked by the referee
HOME FT'S - Average number of free-throws shot by the home team in games worked by the referee
VIS FT'S - Average number of free-throws shot by the visiting team in games worked by the referee
FT DIFF - Average difference in free throws shot by the home team and visiting team in games worked by the referee
HOME FG% - Field goal percentage shot by the home team in games worked by the referee
VIS FG% - Field goal percentage shot by the visiting team in games worked by the referee
TECH FOULS - Technical Fouls called in games worked by the referee
HOME RECORD - Home team's record in wins and losses in games worked by the referee

I think this is groundbreaking stuff. Just think, if you had been an NBA fan, you might have broken the Donaghy story.

Home teams are 0-2 when Tony Greene works... I sure hope he has an assignment in Chapel Hill tomorrow.
