re: Updated Lunardi Bracketology - BHMKyle on 2/14/20 at 12:08 pm
I think Arkansas misses the Tournament all together. Would be very disappointing considering the fast start, but I just don't see the Hogs turning things around and getting a bid. The schedule has just not been very difficult. To date, Arkansas has just one win over the NET Top 50. That is nor...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

[quote]I don't disagree with you, I'm just attempting to explain what it might be. And KenPom does matter because one of the factors in it is efficiencies : Alabama is #48 in KenPom, Tennessee is #58. Another factor is that Tennessee has 5 home losses (which are penalized more) compared to Alabama h...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: SEC Basketball : NET & KenPom Rankings (2-13-20) - BHMKyle on 2/13/20 at 10:33 am
SOG- you're using KenPom but my complaint is about the discrepancy in the NET.... which should look at wins/losses more so as where KenPom does not. Alabama has played 9 Top 50 NET opponents and is 2-7 in those games. Tennessee has played 10 Top 50 NET opponents and is 3-7 in those games. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
