Stat of the Day

Davidson has played in two fewer games than UNC, which makes this stat a little more remarkable.  Stephen Curry has as many blocks this year (14) as Tyler Hansbrough.   Look it up:

Now for the basketball novices reading this blog there is usually a positive correlation between a player's height and their number of blocks.  Also, forwards and center's normally get more blocks than guards since forwards and centers play closer to the basket.   Hansbrough is 6 ft 9 inch post and Stephen Curry is 6 ft 3 inch guard.   That stat should be enough to make you question why Danny Green, Ty Lawson and Wayne Ellington (all complete players) aren't getting as much love as their one dimensional national player of the year teammate.
