Definition – What is Total Rebound Percentage?
Total rebound percentage measures the percentage of rebounds in a game attributed to a single player.
Formula – How to calculate Total Rebound Percentage
Total Rebound Percentage is calculated as:
(100 x Player Rebounds x Team Minutes Played) ÷ (Player Minutes Played x (Team Total Rebounds + Opposing Team Total Rebounds))
A player has 15 steals and 36 minutes played, on a team that has played 48 minutes and 49 total rebounds. The opposing team has had 42 rebounds in this time.
Total Rebound Percentage = (100 x 15 x 48) ÷ (36 x (49 + 42))
Total Rebound Percentage = 72000 ÷ (36 x 91)
Total Rebound Percentage = 72000 ÷ 3276
Total Rebound Percentage = 21.98
Therefore, this player’s rebound percentage would be 21.98% (21.98% of total rebounds that occurred in the game).
