I don't think it will be that significant. They still have Baye Keita (6'10") who is every bit as good as Melo (7'0"), but has played less. If you do a comparison between the numbers they produce and the number of minutes played, they're virtually the same player. Keita's just looking for his time to shine.

Here, I did a comparison using the stats of Keita as if he were playing the same number of minutes per game as Melo:

Minutes/Game:
- Melo - 25.4
- Keita - 11.6
- Thus, 25.4/11.6 = 2.2 is the mutiplier to use for Keita's stats in comparison to Melo's

Makes/Attempts/FG%:
- Melo - 3.3/5.8/56.6%
- Keita - 2.0/2.6/75.0%

Free Throws:
- Melo - 1.3/2.0/63.3%
- Keita - 1.1/1.5/68.2%

Off/Def/Reb:
- Melo - 2.7/3.2/5.8
- Keita - 2.0/3.1/5.1

AST/TO/STL/BLK/PG/PPG:
- Melo - 0.7/1.4/0.5/2.9/2.8/7.8
- Keita - 0.2/0.7/0.4/2.0/3.9/4.8

Sorry, I would do a table format, but this forum doesn't allow for HTML coding.

Anyways, if you look at it like this, they aren't much different stat-wise nor physically.

I already knew you were going to ring it with that "numbers don't tell the whole story thing". I nearly put something at the bottom but figured I'd just wait. BTW, ever read the book or see a movie called "Moneyball"?

He isn't that significant of a presence and the other guy is going to take his place just fine. Still didn't change that I already chose Vandy to take them out anyways

I think they will still win 2, maybe 3 games. Keita will step in, but 'Cuse as a team needs Melo. They were 2-1 without him and did not look that impressive (they should not have beaten West Virginia). Jardine needs to step up, Waiters has to play like he did against Cincy, and Fair is the other piece that has to play well.
