Despite falling from 3rd to 4th in offensive efficiency, the Zags hold at 4th best D and tighten their grip on No 1 overall. Their 34.38 adjusted efficiency is a full 3 points ahead of anyone ne else and I think is among the highest since Pomeroy has been doing this. Can someone with a membership confirm? Bottom line is the metrics, eye test and results all point to this being the best team in the country yet the committee is so caught up in conference RPI they're missing the Zag show.

FuMan, this is the first year KenPom has used the metric AdjEM, (which is the difference between AdjOE and AdjDE) so I can't go back and look for you. I would if I could.

Ssshhhhh. Nobody on this site or especially nationally wants to talk about this. Statistics bad.

You don't need a subscription .... there are years above.

Click on 2015.

You will see that Kentucky undefeated team had 36.90. Besides that, this is the 2nd best team since he's done this (I think)

A member here. you are right. Also the gap between #2 and #11 is only six points, an average of .6. That metric puts a focus on just how huge is the gap between us and Virginia. HUGE!!!!!!!!

Here's your official answer. I found it.

We are now the 2nd highest ranking of all time. Just passed 2002 Duke and 2008 Kansas. Only behind the great UK team

FuMan -- sorry, I was busy and didn't bother to look before I posted above, so I was wrong. Prior to this year, KenPom used a Pythagorean formula instead of the AdjEM. After I just read fan62's post, I looked and realized KenPom has gone back and revised his stat sheets for all previous years and replaced the Pythagorean, which was non-linear and harder to understand, with the AdjEM. Thanks for taking the time to look it up fan62!!!
