    Weighing the Four Factors

    I don't know how many of you are familiar with the four factors of basketball analysis but I dive into it here...

    enCYCLONEpedia: Weighing the Four Factors | Cyclone Fanatic

    There is already a common weight given to each of them but I wanted to see which factors are the most important for the Big 12 conference games thus far (up through last Saturday--70 total games).

    I used the correlation coefficient to compare them and their margins to wins and checked out records in given scenarios.

    Take a look and throw out any comments or questions you may have.

    Certainly shows why KU is a good team.

    Looks like UT is borderline good while KSU and ISU are okay.

    TT stinks across the board.

    I know you don't have the numbers for this, but it would be interesting to see if the significance of a correlative factor changes depending on the conference.

    For example, defensive categories might have higher correlation in the Big10

    Yes, I wondered about the same thing...it would be interesting to see the breakdowns by conference as well as NCAA as a whole.

    I wonder if you could do conference rankings by the four factors analysis instead of whatever arbitrary method they use now.

    Instead of an RPI ranking of conferences?

    I suppose you could but it may not necessarily be indicative of conference strength, i.e. wins and losses.

    The Big Ten and SEC plays whack a mole defense. Bring your protection.

    Then maybe just do it for all teams and rank conferences based on the individual rankings of each team.
