Rebound % Update
I saw some mention of my earlier post about rebound % show up on a Wisconsin message board, so I thought it would be appropriate to update the list to include Brian Butch, who only missed my 25% of minutes played filter because he's missed several games recently. I would just reply on their board, but I was too impatient to apply for membership, and I'm assuming this will find its way there anyway.

Here's the new top ten lists among players who've been on the court for at least 10% of their team's minutes. I used season stats, as of about a week ago.

Player..........................................Total Reb%
Matt Trannon, MSU........................21.4%
Paul Davis, MSU............................18.3%
Aaron Johnson, PSU......................17.6%
Brian Butch, Wisc...........................17.2%
J'son Stamper, Minn.......................17.1%
James Augustine, Ill........................17.1%
Doug Thomas, Iowa........................16.5%
Brent Petway, Mich.........................15.7%
Pat Ewing Jr, Ind.............................15.3%
Drew Naymick, MSU.......................15.1%

Player...........................................Off Reb%
J'son Stamper, Minn......................15.0%
Aaron Johnson, PSU.....................14.2%
Brian Butch, Wisc..........................14.0%
Delco Rowley, MSU.......................13.7%
Carl Landry, Pur.............................13.6%
James Augustine, Ill.......................13.4%
Matt Trannon, MSU........................13.2%
Pat Ewing Jr., Ind..........................12.7%
Doug Thomas, Iowa......................12.5%
Paul Davis, MSU............................11.6%

Player............................................Def Reb%
Matt Trannon, MSU.........................28.8%
Paul Davis, MSU.............................24.3%
Aaron Johnson, PSU......................21.0%
James Augustine, Ill........................20.5%
Brian Butch, Wisc...........................20.3%
Doug Thomas, Iowa.......................20.3%
Drew Naymick, MSU.......................20.1%
Greg Brunner, Iowa.........................20.0%
Zach Morley, Wisc..........................19.6%
Brent Petway, Mich.........................19.6%

Butch and Trannon are each averaging 11-12 mpg. Both play in frontcourts that will lose several seniors, so I won't be at all surprised to see them near the top of the rebounding leaderboard when their minutes increase next year. Trannon's rates look very similar to North Carolina's Sean May, which is to say absurdly good, especially for a guy listed at 6'6".

If Davis, Trannon, and Naymick are all around next year, Michigan State shouldn't have much trouble dominating the Big Ten in rebounding, again. I'm no veteran observer of this conference, so someone fill me in - does Tom Izzo recruit great rebounders, or are they a product of his system/coaching?
