KEADYBALL RATINGS SYSTEM

Gene Keady has challenged his player to meet certain goals. These goals, if successfully executed, will win you games 99-percent of the time under Keady's system. The six main goals for the team are as follows...

1. Opponent shooting percentage less than 39 percent
2. Opponent held under 65 points
3. Outrebound the opponent
4. Shoot 52 percent from the field
5. Shoot 26 free throws
6. Commit 15 or fewer turnovers

Each of the six main goals listed above will each be scored a maximum of 16 points. The remaining four points will come from successfully achieving the Keady points. The best Keady game would score 100 in our rating system, even though a perfect execution could achieve a score of 105 points in this rating system.

1. Opponent shooting percentage less than 39 percent...One rating point is subtracted for every two percent over 39 percent.

2. Opponent held under 65 points...Loss of one rating point for every two points over 65 an opponent scores.

3. Outrebound the opponent...Loss of one rating point for every one rebound a opponent outrebounds Purdue by.

4. Shoot 52 percent from the field...Loss of one rating point for every two percent under 52 percent.

5. Shoot 26 free throws...Loss of one rating point for every free throw under 26.

6. Commit 15 or fewer turnovers...Loss of one rating point for every turnover over 15.


On top of Keady's six key factors of success, we have identified eight intangibles that can work as bonus points. In looking over the history of Gene Keady basketball, several traits of the Keady system have risen from the successful execution of KeadyBall. They are as follows...

* Support point (SUP)...Purdue has had a strong history of selling out Mackey when his teams are playing KeadyBall, and his teams have been very successful on the road. If Mackey Arena is sold out at home, the team is awarded one point. If the game is on the road, one point is awarded for a road win.

* Leadership point (LEA)...Keady has often mentioned a goal of a 3-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio for his point guards. If a Keady point guard has a 3-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio for the a game, the team is awarded one point.

* Floorburn point (FLO)...Hustle, hustle, hustle. Keady teams work hard. Simply, if someone dives on the floor during the game after a ball, the team is awarded one point.

* Stopper point (STP)...A Keady team is defined by its defense, and a key to successfully taking an opposing team out of its gameplan is to shut down the opposing team's best scorer. If the opposing team's best scorer is held under his season average, the team is awarded one point.

* Survivor point (SUR)...Keady players play tough, but they also play smart. A large number of fouls are caused by a player trying to cover the defensive breakdown of another player. If no Purdue player fouls out of a game, the team is awarded one point.

* Elimination point (ELI)...KeadyBall takes it hard to the opponent. If Purdue fouls out an opposing player, the team is awarded one point.

* Gymrat point (GYM)...A team that shoots 80% from the line is in a good position to win games, and especially able to close out games without fear of losing it at the line. If the team shoots 80% or better from the free throw line in a game, the team is awarded one point.

* Hardship point (HAR)...Simply, Purdue wins most games it leads at the half. If Purdue wins game after trailing at the half, the team is awarded one point.

* Pressure point (PRE)...Some games require a little extra focus to be successful. Big games and hostile crowds are always an 'x' factor. If Purdue wins against arch-rival Indiana, wins against a team ranked in the top 10, wins a Big Ten Championship clinching game, wins a Big Ten tournament game or wins an NCAA tournament game, the team is awarded one point.
