Re: What to root for (kenpom)

These power rating formulas are heavily geared to reward offensive and defensive efficiency metrics, so RUTS (Running Up The Score) is now very important to the overall chance of your program to make the NCAA tournament.

Re: Wcc and mwc games today

Big game for New Mexico. St. Mary's is #25 on Kenpom. And the WCC has become a quality conference for basketball the last two years, outside of Gonzaga who has obviously been VERY good for some time. Too bad they're so afraid of playing us, on account of our great win rate against them. https://www...

In a separate amazing 3-point shooting night, byu hit 19 threes (in 37 attempts) to beat Westminster. It is the most 3-pointers made by an in -state team since November 22, 2022. By the way that team did it in 31 attempts.
That sounds like a USU press release fact right there!

Re: Coach Kayla Ard's Contract

Horvath's poor free throw shooting had to be mental. His jumper and 3 point shots were solid, but he really struggled from the line.

Re: Coach Kayla Ard's Contract

How did someone with such a lackluster coaching history get this job? It just seems like a complete gift for someone who really hadn’t accomplished much. Is there more to the story? More importantly, why did nearly the entire team leave after last year? That is very very concerning. I haven't seen ...
