MAAC Monday: Offensive rebound percentages, stat leaders, power rankings

MAAC Monday resumes its four-part look at the four factors within the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, using offensive rebound percentages as its lens before transitioning to stat leaders and power rankings. As always, any statistics reflected in MAAC Monday were gleaned from the individual stat pages of each school's website.

Offensive rebound percentages, from highest to lowest:
1) Quinnipiac (34.8%)
2) Manhattan (34.1)
3) Siena (33.8)
4) Canisius (32.4)
5) Niagara (32.3)
6) Rider (31.1)
7) Monmouth (29.6)
8) Saint Peter's (26.8)
9) Iona (25.4)
10) Marist (24.6)
11) Fairfield (23.6)

Opposing offensive rebound percentages, from lowest to highest:
1) Saint Peter's (21.7%)
2) Rider (28.5)
3) Manhattan (28.6)
4) Fairfield (29.8)
5) Quinnipiac (29.81)
6) Siena (30.4)
7) Monmouth (30.5)
8) Iona (30.9)
9) Marist (31.2)
10) Niagara (33.5)
11) Canisius (34.1)

Analysis: Rebounding has always been the backbone of Quinnipiac's teams since Tom Moore assumed the reins in Hamden, and is so once again during this, his tenth season at the helm of the Bobcats. As a team, Quinnipiac averages nearly 14 offensive boards per game, with the frontcourt trio of Chaise Daniels, Donovan Smith and Abdulai Bundu; as well as guard Daniel Harris, accounting for half that total. Manhattan is not too far behind on the charts, but in the Jaspers' case, their high number is just as much a product of cleaning up their missed shots as it is the likes of Zane Waterman and 7-foot-2 Ahmed Ismail cleaning up the glass.

On the opposing side, Saint Peter's is one of three schools; Manhattan and Quinnipiac being the others, with a plus-5 or greater offensive rebound margin. While the Peacocks have struggled on the glass outside of Quadir Welton, John Dunne's team defense has been so effective to where opposing teams have been unable to crash the boards at an optimal rate. The same can be said of Rider, who; yet again, rank near the top of a defensive category. The infusion of fifth-year senior Norville Carey alongside Kahlil Thomas has given Kevin Baggett two valuable interior presences that can end offensive possessions before they get too productive, a major contributing factor behind the first-place Broncs' 4-1 start to MAAC play.

MAAC Monday takes one final look at the four factors next week, shedding further light on turnover rates and forced turnover rates, and will refresh possessions per game as well.
