More On Dunleavy vs. Jacobsen

Alex Wolff has an article up about various things, but conceding his argument
with Grant Wohl regarding Casey
Jacobsen vs. Mike Dunleavy.
That's a mistake on two levels. One, Jacobsen
had a better game vs. Duke than did Dunleavy, at least if you go by scoring
only. Casey got 26 to Dunleavy's 13. But he barely registered
statistically other than that - 2 boards, 1 assist - well he did have five

Dunleavy had his 13 points, had 5 boards, 4 assists, 3 steals, and no
turnovers. Add the eight points on assists and Dunleavy is accountable for
21 points. Add 4 defensive rebounds and 3 steals, and that's 7 shots he
denied Stanford.

No one is going to argue that Jacobsen is not a spectacular shooter.
But anyone who would argue that he is a better overall player than Mike
Dunleavy would have to go a ways to convince us.
