...in terms of the six key statistics tracked by the NCAA. Mark Few is clearly one of the premier coaches in college basketball!

Here's the index showing the Zags overall placement within all 326 Division 1 teams. They are a RESILIENT team that will make some noise in the dance!

Interesting to click on the map of NCAA teams on that site and you can see why east coast bias could exist....

Interesting comment in the section that defines what MPI is:

"The STAT6 (6 key stat average) half of the two-part Marchpool index is a clear indicator of what teams simply will not beat themselves. One noteworthy example is the legendary Davidson squad of the 2007/2008 campaign. Of the 2380 Division 1 mens b-ball teams statistically tracked online since 2002, the Wildcats ranked an astonishing tenth overall. That statistical level of play translates into overall #1 seed most years.. Davidson did receive a 10 seed, largely due to its Selection Sunday RPI ranking of 35. By the end of the tourney, Davidsons‘ RPI had shot up to 15th overall. To summarize, Davidson played Final 4 caliber ball by any standard, and may have been the best overall team in 2008."

Unfortunately we know what happened when we ran in to them!
