As in all sports that I know of, statistics play a role in raking Basketball players or making

predictions. For example shooting percentages ( i.e. three-throw pct., field goal pct-

3-point attempts.) The math involved is simple- divide the shots made by the shots taken.

Of course, keeping score uses numbers and players have to know when they are in foul trouble, but I have to admit one can be an excellent player and not know any math . One

can rely on the coach to know the score.
