Per Kenpom the Zags are shooting an otherworldly 61.3% on 2 point shots and holding opponents to 42.6%.

It would certainly follow that you could win a lot of games with those stats.

Sure seems like we score a lot of effortless points with some athleticism, run run jump jump that ends in practical layups in transition or off a set, that past teams couldn't do as well, much looser. We're not used to it so it's hard to see in some ways, at least to me.

Maybe I am wrong. But the numbers seem to indicate we're missing something as fans, just looser, which comports with what Tommy told a luncheon crowd, pre-season, IIRC, "we're going to let it rip." Maybe we're doing that fairly well but it's new and we have little reference.

Just a theory.

kenpom has an interesting theory regarding three point percentage...i'm not sure i buy it, but he's said in the past that opponent 3pt% has very little to do with how good the defense actually is...

This will only get better as Rui going to tear up the WCC games.
