Here is the problem with assuming that Agho would have made a big difference:
His shots would not have been added on top of the team total - they would have come mostly from Barbour shots and from shots that were set up by Barbour.
Last season, Barbour shot only 17.6% of Columbia's shots when he was on the floor. Agho shot 27.6%. Barbour's assist rate was only 18.0, so he wasn't really setting up that many of his teammates points.
This season, Barbour shot 25.6% of Columbia's shots when he was in, and his assist rate jumped to 28.8. This is not only because of the loss of Agho, but I think there is compelling evidence that if Agho had been there, many of his possessions would have taken the ball out of Barbour's hands. So the question is whether Agho would have been more efficient than the possessions he would displace.
