PEREZ-TEJERO, Javier  and  PINILLA ARBEX, Javier. Wheelchair basketball player performance by game statistics. CPD [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.3, pp.231-236. ISSN 1989-5879.

The analysis of the sport performance in wheelchair basketball (WB) has been a growing topic in recent years. However, few studies have focused on the game statistics. Therefore, the present study is to determine a reference for maximum performance for each functional class based on each variable from game related statistics. To this end, official statistics from 32 matches for the top 8 teams in the title league at the Spanish Honour Division (season 2013/2014) were obtained with information per player and game; a total of 58 players corresponding to the classes 1 (n = 11), 2 (n = 12), 3 (n = 12) and 4 (n = 23) were studied. Regarding the shooting percentages, the 2-points was 60.8 to 67.6% accuracy, making more shots in higher functional classes. 3-points was 41.2 to 42.9% (only classes 2,3 and 4). 1-point free throw was 66.7% -89.5%, with class 4 player with the highest percentage and number of throws made. The maximum data obtained were recorded in class 4 players with more offensive rebounds (4.12) and defensive (9.99) registered and fouls received (9.95), assists (10.8), steals (1.99) and points scored (29.4). This study has allowed the characterization of performance in WB, stressing the importance in comparing the performance of each player with those of the same functional class per game statistics.
