    Basketball Prospectus: Big 12

    If you get into basketball stats, you've probably heard of Ken Pomeroy who is a great tempo based stats guy. Basically, he's teamed up with the basketball prospectus and they have released some Big 12 previews. One is an overview right now, and there is a "part one" of a larger preview, and part two has yet to be released.

    Basically, I love Pomeroy and I really like the new basketball prospectus site. Interesting stuff anyway.

    (BTW, you'll like the overview preview, it has some very good things to say about ISU)

    This made me laugh a lot:

    What Kansas State did well: Hold press conferences at which new coaches are introduced.


    Green hills for thy throne, and for crown a golden melody/Ringing in the hearts of all who bring thee love and loyalty/Dear Alma Mater, make our spirits great
    True and valiant like the bells of I-O-WA STATE!

    And thank you Stumpy for this:

    Wow. Considering how bad we were at nearly every statistical category, Coach McDermott should have been inducted into the hall of fame for getting us 15 wins. I like that they think we'll go 8-8 in conference, because that should get us 18-20 wins overall.

    Re: Basketball Prospectus: Big 12

    Honestly, reading this preview gets me pretty fired up, because I have a lot of faith in Pomeroy and those guys. I still don't think we'll hit 8-8, but it gets me a little more excited about the season.

    Also, I do think it's funny they are right on board with the people that think Taylor won't be a big loss, and they don't have any emotion wrapped up in it because they just look at it statistically.

    Wow, this guy knows his stuff. I think he was right on the mark regarding the Taylor situation and that he won't be missed. He didn't mention the Lucca situation of the importance of Garratt to this years team but an excellent writeup none the less. Thanks for the link.

    It's great to read an article that sounds like they had actually analyzed the team!

    Wow, Sadler doesn't sound any more impressed with his team than I am.

    Sadler sounded really subdued about this group in November. "For us to get started as late as we did," he said, "I am pleased with the quality of this recruiting class overall. Obviously we will continue with each class to try to make our team better every year. With the addition of these players next season, we will have made a dent in improving the Nebraska basketball program for the future." Whoa, curb your enthusiasm, coach.

    Great find BryceC...I'm going to have to follow Pomeroy from here on out. The statistics he uses seem to be the ones actually important to the success of a basketball team...

    That was mostly Gasaway, and he's good too, but Pomeroy is the statistician. And yes, they rock. I've been waiting for them to release their preview for like two weeks, hitting Prospectus every day.

    Both Ken and John are absolutely awesome. I've worked with both and both are great basketball minds.

    Re: Basketball Prospectus: Big 12

    Mike sure had the energy to play two positions. We always knew our other guards were not the go to guys, so Mike was on an island. I expect three point shooting to be much better with more players and fresher legs.


    Mike had tto lead the nation in wild shot threes Made. He had a highlight reel.

    Again, Bryce, thanks for the links and these guys really seem to know their stuff. Yes, it is amazing to us that they have actually done their homework and know what is going on with the players and the teams.
