We come in six but the more interesting part is the graph under Kentucky's write up about blocked shots and retention of this blocks. There is also a nice blurb about Karnowskis passing

I think Austin Daye must have also studied at the Roy Hibbert School of Verticality
he captured a surprisingly large percentage of his blocked shots.
What was really cool in the tape was the number of times Darion Atkins would actually tip his blocked shot to one of his team mates

They plot Gonzaga on the block % and blocked shots kept chart in #2 Duke's commentary. Not surprised to see we are well below average in the % of shot attempts we block and in those relatively rare situations where we do get a block we are less likely to keep it than most other schools.

Despite the height of our front line, we don't really seem to get up for blocks (or dunks) for that matter. Been like that for a long time.

Wonder what the graph for fouls committed on 3 point shooters would show?

Haven't really had a dunker since Elias, and Kelly, to a lesser extent.. Sam was ok, not really his style. And it's been forever since we had an elite dunking guard - prolly back to Pargo. Melson should provide some relief in that area.

But, you're right, our front line really isn't an "up" type. Wesley's been dunking, but with utility, not flash (which is just fine). I know for a fact that Gary can really get up when he wants to. About 6 times a year, he senses a rebound and will come straight down the lane and have his hips up at people's faces. But, he really doesn't seem interested in throwing it down. Much more comfortable with the lay it in and get back on D type.
