Grinnell’s formula not a success for hoops
GRINNELL (MCT) — Within the walls of Darby Gymnasium it’s called “The Formulas for Success.” Sunday, the home of the Grinnell College men’s basketball exposed the formula to the world. Media ranging from the World Wide Leader in ESPN to the Boston Globe trekked to the alleged mecca of offensive basketball to witness David Arseneault’s creation.
It’s simple enough: 94 shots + 49 3-pointers + rebounding 33% of your missed shots + 25 more shots than your opponent + 32 forced turnovers = a win.
Disciples of the system include Steve Diekmann, who set the NCAA Division III scoring record with 37.1 points per game in the 1994-95 season; Jeff Clement, who averaged 8.4 3-pointers a game in the 98-99 campaign — the most in any level of college basketball; and Griffin Lentsch, current Grinnell senior, who scored 89 points in a single game last year.
