Oregon Shot Chart Analysis
Effective Field Goal Percentage: The strength of the Oregon, Stanford's opponent on Sunday is the Ducks' impressive shooting. Oregon's "effective field goal percentage" is an outstanding 57.2%, ranked sixth in the nation according to kenpom.com. (Effective field goal percentage weights three-pointers 50% more). The Ducks achieve this percentage fairly equally between two-pointers and three-pointers as its two-point field goal percentage is 57.1% (also sixth in the nation) and its three-point shooting of 123 for 322 is also equivalent to an effective percentage of 57.3% (62nd in the nation).
