Bradley Team Defense Preview

Their defense is above average relative to other teams. Now that we know what the overall defense looks like, it is time to understand why this defense is the way it is. Want to score against this defense? They are not going to make it easy. If your movement without the ball and ball movement is not good, you will need to rely more heroic plays and challenging drives to the basket.

Bradley Team Offense Preview

You should not have high expectations considering their offensive efficiency is 103.6, but relatively speaking it is still a slightly above-average offense. Now that we know what the overall offense looks like, it is time to understand why this offense is the way it is. Compared to the rest of the league, there is a sense of neutrality about ball movement to set up 2 point shots. This team is average at committing turnovers, but that is not necessarily good enough.
Their Effective Field Goal Rate is 0.518, which considered to be slightly above average. Their True Shooting Percentage is 0.54 which considered to be slightly above average. They attempt 0.397 of their shots from three point range. They fall right around average in College Basketball. They made 0.344 of their shots from three point range. They are a slightly above average three point shooting team. The Charity Stripe is not an emphasized part of the offense. They made 0.669 of their shots from the charity stripe. This is a team that will keep opponents in the game when up with a late narrow lead. They successfully retrieved 31.9% of their missed shots. They are a slightly above average rebounding team.

Northern Iowa Team Defense Preview

Their defense is above average relative to other teams. This analysis would be woefully incomplete without going into further detail aside from just a defensive efficiency rating. They fall in the middle defensively when it comes to opponent ball movement. Sometimes defenses are very focused on forcing bad shots and getting the defensive rebound. Is there anything to support this? It may be just possible that this is a passive defense.
They are a below average team when it comes to their ability to force bad shots. Opponents like to shoot a lot of threes against them, some of it is scheduling. However, it must be the offensive response to this defense and this must explain why they have one of the highest rates of three point shots against them. They are an average team when it comes to the shot quality of the three point shots of their opposition. They are a below average team when it comes to their ability to force bad shots inside the perimeter. Blocked shots are not a part of their DNA. Likely a lack of size contributing to it. This is an elite level defensive rebounding team. Falling more than two standard deviations from the mean, this is impressive and indicative of a team that should have more on the horizon.

Northern Iowa Team Offense Preview



You should not have high expectations considering their offensive efficiency is 107.9, but relatively speaking it is still a slightly above-average offense. This analysis would be woefully incomplete without going into further detail aside from just an offensive efficiency rating. They tend to score a bit more off the dribble inside the perimeter than most. They do an above average job protecting the basketball and making decisions on offense.
Their Effective Field Goal Rate is 0.541, which considered to be above average. Their True Shooting Percentage is 0.578 which considered to be above average. They attempt 0.441 of their shots from three point range. They take three point shots more than many in the country. They made 0.355 of their shots from three point range. They are a slightly above average three point shooting team. Getting to the Free Throw Line is a neutral part of the offensive mindset and approach. They made 0.771 of their shots from the Free Throw Line. They are an above average Free Throw shooting team. They have an abysmal offensive rebounding rate of 21.9% this season. Offensive rebounding is not their thing, it should be important. They are socially distancing on the offensive glass!

The Bradley Roster

The Players to Watch for Bradley
Malevy Leons 6-9 210 pound Forward
Malevy Leons sports a 19.6 Player Efficiency Rate (PER) this season. There is potential for much more this season than his campaign this season. Consider that he is one of the better players in the conference and he can mean much more. He is not a very active participant on the floor. He may even be considered just a screener or a warm body out there.
Offensive Breakdown
Malevy Leons attempted 0.477 of his shots from three point range. This season, he does not stand out as a player who attempted a lot of shots from downtown. Malevy Leons shot 0.405 from long range this season. He is considered an above-average three point shooter and a threat who must be contained on the perimeter. He made 0.605 of his two point shots attempted this season. He is a solid finisher at the rim and his shot selection is generally strong inside the perimeter. He is among the most efficient in his ability to score. As a shooter regardless of where he is, he makes something damaging happen for opponents.
His ability to crash the boards on the offensive end is average.His ability to distribute the ball to his teammates is on-par with others in College Basketball. He is among the best in the country at not turning the ball over.
Defensive Breakdown
Malevy Leons has shown that he may be an elite defensive player going into this season and the expectation is that it should not change. He is a leader in his conference as a defensive rebounder. He is one of the best shot-blockers in College Basketball, opponents have to game plan around him and he is an insurance policy of sorts for his team on the defensive end. This may enable them to take more risks defensively knowing he can erase shots. A capable enough defender to be disruptive, but Malevy Leons is inconsistent in his efforts to get steals.
Terry Roberts 6-3 180 pound Guard
Terry Roberts has a 23.9 Player Efficiency Rate (PER) this season. He is among the best in the conference and even in the country as far as his on-the-court contributions.

Offensive Breakdown
Terry Roberts attempted 0.311 of his shots from three point range. This season, he does not stand out as a player who attempted a lot of shots from downtown. He made 0.364 of his three point shots fired this season. He is considered an above-average three point shooter and a threat who must be contained on the perimeter. Terry Roberts shot 0.528 inside the perimeter. He is not a remarkable scorer inside the perimeter. His ability to score is not necessarily anything to behold and amassing points in his case is a matter of volume rather than efficiency.

Defensive Breakdown

Rienk Mast 6-9 240 pound Forward

Defensive Breakdown
He is a strong defender who makes a positive impact for his team on the defensive end. Windex has found their new pitchman and his abilities on the defensive glass certainly warrant such a Dick Vitale-ism.
