The @Yankees will be the eighth team in MLB history to open the season with an MVP and a Rookie of the Year from the prior season, and the first since the 1989 Oakland Athletics had 1988 AL MVP Jose Canseco and AL ROY Walt Weiss. @EliasSports
Ben Simmons and Jayson Tatum have received most of the rookie attention, but Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell has also been terrific. Averaging 17.5 points and shooting 38 percent from deep. Simmons leads rookies in scoring (17.7), rebounding (9.5) and assists (7.5).
Statistics don't always tell the story, but @CalMBBall ranks last in the Pac-12 in offense (74.2 PPG) and defense (80.6). Also last in 3-pt defense and asst/TO ratio, and 11th in FG pct and rebounding margin.
