How To Calculate Turnover Ratio in Basketball

The turnover ratio in basketball is a statistic that measures which player on the team is most likely to turn the ball over. For enthusiasts and fans, knowing the turnover ratio for specific players can be a valuable piece of trivia. For coaches and other professionals involved in basketball, it can be used as an assessment point for improving the team’s performance. Here’s how you can solve for the turnover ratio in basketball.

Narrow down the player. Begin by narrowing down the number of players whose turnover ratio you want to compute for. It will be almost impossible to get the turnover ratio for all players, which means that you have to focus on just a few. Make sure, however, that you have at least two players in mind, so that you will be able to make comparisons. At the same time, you also need to determine the time frame for the sample that you are going to take of the ratio. You can have a single game as the time frame, or a season. You can even make a turnover ratio analysis of a player’s career, which will give more accurate results since you are covering the entire career span of the athlete.

Find the stats. Next, you will need to have several data at the ready. These include the field goals attempted, the field goals made, the free throws made, the assists, and the turnovers. Keep in mind that these data should come from the time frame that you have chosen. In other words, if you are going to analyze a player within a specific season, all of the data should come only form that season. If you are going to analyze the career of a player, then you should include all of the games that the athlete has played professionally.

Multiply. Next, take the number of attempted free throws and then multiply this value with the number 0.44. Combine this with the total field goal that has been attempted.

Possession total. The number you have just derived will then be used to compute for the possession total, which can be determined by adding the number from the previous step to the total turnovers and assists that the player has made within the time frame in question.

Multiply. Once this is done, you will need to multiply by one hundred the total turnovers. The resulting figure should then be divided by the sum of all possessions that has been made by the particular player. This will constitute your turnover ratio for the player that you are analyzing. As a rule, the number is usually rounded out to the tenth of the nearest percentage.

You can follow the same procedure for other players so that you can create comparisons between one team and another. Keep in mind, however, that the comparisons should also be based on the same time frame. This means that if you analyzed a given player’s turnover ratio for a season, it should also be compared to player whose turnover ratio is a season in length.

About this blog
Four longtime Journal News reporters share their insights about fiction, non-fiction, poetry and short stories by bringing books discussions online and exploring the local literati scene. Lots of people say they are booklovers, but Elizabeth Ganga, Barbara Livingston Nackman, Ken Valenti and Randi Weiner really are!


What they blog about
Book Notes: An ongoing chat about events, authors and news items about books, libraries, authors and everything literary from metro news reporters Barbara Livingston Nackman and Elizabeth Ganga. Barbara has been a reporter for The Journal News since 1997. She covers municipalities in Putnam County and keeps track of book events everywhere - and began her career writing about books and libraries. Lisa has been a reporter for The Journal News since 2000, after working at several newspapers in Connecticut. She has covered cities and town in sourthern and northern Westchester and is a big Jane Austen fan (though she reads everything from history to mysteries). Both reporters work out of the Mount Kisco bureau and frequently trade tidbits about books and events.


Novel Pursuits: Ken Valenti sheds light on his ongoing experiences as a novelist and poet.  He talks about his trials and tribulations including musings about projects, readings, successes, and even insights into what he is reading and finds interesting. A reporter for The Journal News and its forerunners for more than 20 years, Ken now covers transportation. His first love has been writing fiction, but he's only begun pursuing that dream in recent years. He has been a reader and fiction editor for the journal Inkwell, and has published one short story in another fiction journal.


Seasoned Works: Randi Weiner dishes up an ongoing discussion about all books - old and savory. Though Randi keeps readers abreast of school issues most days and reads lots of children's and young adult books, current science fiction and murder mysteries, her overriding passion is older works generally written before 1940. She chats online about favorites and newly discovered treasures as well as book exhibits and talks related to the dusty, the musty and the marvelous illustrators of the past. She has been a reporter since 1976, with Gannett since 1989. And for the record, she says she has a personal library of more than 4,000 volumes.
