Very interesting stuff.
We're ranked near the bottom of the barrell in Offensive Rebounding (ugh).
We're ranked #1 in Free Throws Attempted vs. Field Goals Attempted (shows that we draw an awful lot of shooting fouls).

This is part of the reason why I feel fans shouldn't be insanely worried about Gonzaga's team assist totals right now. Shooting way more foul shots than your opponents is more important than team assists when it comes to measuring offensive effectiveness. It means that you are getting quality looks at the basket on a regular basis. When you get those looks, opponents feel as if they have to foul.

The ratio for the zags is a .64.
This basically means that for every field goal attempted we attempted .64 freethrows. Pretty good ratio.

I think right now the biggest room for improvement is our offensive rebounding, where Kenpom has as at 281st in the nation (ouch). The other large deficiency I see in these rankings is our defensive TOs, in that we generate very few of them. If we brought the two of those up, our overall efficiency would be much higher.
