NBL Regular Season Leading Scorers by Area

With the conclusion of the regular season, I took a look at the leading scorers (and best field goal percentages) from each area of the floor. Dropping off the mid-season graphic were Jarrod Kenny (left corner), Tom Abercrombie (both mid-range spots below the free throw line) and Clint Steindl (right wing three).

2015-16 Reg Season - Leading Scorers by Area

AJ Ogilvy was slowed down a little in the second half of the season and closed out the last eleven games shooting only 56.5% in the restricted area but he came out on top with Charles Jackson's minutes being more limited. Jordair Jett was even more aggressive as the season went on (good enough to win the Crocs MVP) and he finished at 57.8% inside the paint and 26.1% outside of the paint.

Jerome Randle continued to be close to unstoppable out of the pick and roll and one reason was his jumper just inside the arc. Corey Webster's mid-range game is as good as any so it was no surprise to see him work his way on there after missing the start of the season. Tom Garlepp was a big improver last season and he posted similar all round numbers this season but at a more efficient clip.

Over 60% of Stephen Holt's threes were from the left wing, whilst nothing appears to have changed with Kirk Penney as he finished the regular season with shooting marks of 44.1%, 45.9%, 62.5% and 60.0% from the four main three point spots on the floor. Jermaine Beal had a streaky shooting season but hit 52.2% from the corners compared with his below par 31.8% from above the break.
