The top 2 teams in kenpom are 285th and 350th in adjusted tempo. Yet they are both extremely efficient on offense and defense. Both have adjust D efficiency in top 7 and adjusted O efficiency in the top 14.

We are 12th on D and 86th on O. At our tempo we have to be better with offensive efficiency if we want to make a splash the rest of the season.

The point is, in terms of winning and losing, efficiency on both ends is what's important at any tempo.

The best Defensive efficient teams typically are some of the slowest Tempo teams in the country.

Here is the Kenpom top 15 Defenses.

Only 1 school out of 15 has a top 100 Tempo ranking.

Now sort based on AdjT. The schools in the top 100 for tempo are not noteworthy teams in the slightest. They aren't good teams. The only ones of note that I see are UNC, USC, and Xavier. I'm not begging to be one of the fastest teams in the country. I'm just asking to be be somewhere from 100-200. The fastest teams in the country are not good teams, that's why they don't have a good AdjD.

Most coaches wil tell you that if you don't guard you don't win.

Minnesota is 0-13 in the BIG and they're beating #6 Maryland by 11 at half.

Is it just me or does it seem like the home team is winning a lot more than usual this year during conference play? I know Minnesota hasn't locked it up yet, but they really have no business having a lead on Maryland.
