I paid for a KenPom membership. So here's how our two combatants compare in tempo-free stats:

Gonzaga 34
Arizona 40

GU adjusted offense: 110.8 (20th)
Arizona adjusted D: 92.9 (51st)

Arizona adjusted offense: 108.2 (47th)
Gonzaga adjusted defense: 93.6 (55th)

Interesting Arizona stats:
* 51.1 effective field goal percentage, ranked 90th
* 44.8 defensive EFG%, ranked 69th
* They have a 17.8 defensive TO%, ranked 305th; and a 29.6 offensive rebounding %, ranked 261st).

Expected outcome: KenPom says Gonzaga wins this matchup 61 percent of the time. Predicted score: Gonzaga 69, Arizona 66

Sounds great. I'll take it. 3 pt win.

Interesting that AZ isn't turning other teams over that much, I like hearing that.
