Cordell Pemsl

Another guy whose statistical production took a somewhat mysterious dip. Pemsl came into the season slimmer, trimmer and in the best shape of his life but his scoring dropped from 8.9 per game to 5.7. He still was an effective scorer around the basket although if he could ever make a jump shot or two, he would be even more difficult to defend. Some of his problem this season resulted from fluctuating playing time. There were games in which he played 15 to 20 minutes but when Cook was rolling, Pemsl’s minutes sometimes dropped into single digits.
