The following links are from a new basketball blog that Luke Winn linked to in his power rankings. What the author is doing is going through and looking at the average data for all bcs coaches over the last seven years. His results shed some light on our CPH discussions and the time framematches up well with Bird's point guard analysis. There are 72 coaches included so the ranks shown are out of 72.
Pace and Average Efficiency: This shows the average pace and overall offensive and defensive efficiency numbers. I was a little surprised that CPH teams were in the top ten in adjusted pace over the last seven years. CPH's average offensive efficiency was 41 and average defensive efficiency was 22. Those numbers are probably about what we expected. Average offense and above average defense.
Four Factors of Offensive Efficiency: This breaks down the components of offensive efficiency into the four factors that Ken Pomeroy uses to calculate offensive efficiency. Once again there aren't a lot of surprises. CPH's ranks are:
To summarize the strength of the team offensively is the ability to get their own misses, while the main weakness is clearly turnovers. This is why CPH's teams so often fail the eyeball test, because turnovers are one of the easiest things for a fan to spot and let's be honest 69th out of 72 is really bad. Also, as the article mentions, it is hard to know whether good offensive rebounding is part of a coaches strategy or is more related to having a player like Gani Lawal.
If the blogger proceeds to break down the defensive side I will try to post those numbers as well. That will be CPH's time to shine.
