  • Gonzaga Back on Top at KenPom Ratings Ahead of Baylor

    30.01 GU 29.31 BAYLOR

    Adjusted Offense ranked 2d, and Adjusted Defense at 13.

    Given they played five top 25 teams this year already, and 4 of them in the top 10 at the time, these are encouraging early metrics.

    Saw that, and was pleasantly surprised. But if Baylor wins in Eugene tonight.......................
    The NBA playoffs, a best of 7 is always better than a best of 1.

      Baylor looked unbeatable in the second half again Oregon. Its freshman guard took over midway through the second half, and their half court defense was outstanding.

      But Gonzaga still held on to its top rating on KenPom.

        GU went from #19 to #13 on defence, which is a very good sign as well...

          KenPom is great, but lest anyone forget how far ahead last year's team was compared to Baylor and how that made no difference whatsoever in the end:

            Zags #6 in NET rankings this AM. Arizona #1.

            As we get to the end of December, I start to pay more attention to this. Zags have played 5 Quad 1 games with a 3-2 record. Quad 1 record is a major factor in seeding for NCAA's

            WCC will give is a chance at another 7-8 Quad 1 games which is much better that previous years. As a reminder a home wins vs 1-30, neutral vs 1-50 and road games vs 1-75 are considered Quad 1

            #6 Zags
            #25 BYU
            #36 USF
            #53 SMC
            #99 SCU
