I'd love to see this happen, but no team outside the top 30 in KenPom defensive efficiency has EVER won a natty.  We're #90 (but #1 offense).  Would love for Shaka and the guys to prove me wrong though.

Entering the tournament, the lowest defense ranking was 39. But plenty of Final Four teams have made it with lower defensive rankings. I think the key is to get us, Arizona, Xavier, and Baylor into the Final Four. Then a sub-40 defense is certain to win.

Being outside the top-20 in either offense or defense is an outlier

I think covid and the portal changes the equation a bit — maybe.  We’ll have more data points in a year or two

The Golden State Warriors changed the NBA and MU's style might be changing the old rules of who can win and who cannot win.

You never know what's going to happen era to era as style of play changes, but the Warriors defensive rankings in their four title years were:

2015 - 1st
2017 - 2nd
2018 - 11th
2022 - 1st

They won with defense as much as they did with offense. Since 2013, their 2018 team is the only team to win the NBA title while ranking outside of the top 10 in defense. It's possible for MU to make a run, but the defense will likely have to improve.

I still think our defense is far better than the ranking shows. There is not a game that we are not forcing the opponent to make tough shots. The second chance points have hurt the cause. First shot possessions they are making teams work hard more often than not.

While this is true, the ranking is low because of what happens when giving up second chance points.  At this point, it’s part of who they are.

We agree there. The first shot defense is just fine. Improving marginally on the glass is probably the easiest way to fix the defense.

Wow. It's also interesting that our two best % 3pt shooters come off the bench.

Did NET stop updating UConn's ranking?

Losing to a top 65 team on the road doesn't really hurt you. This doesn't go into NET calculations, but at Seton Hall is a Q1 loss.

I do know, Newsie is right on you knowing ball.

Not sure I get the love for Creighton - is it because of their margin of victory in the games they are supposed to win?

Creighton lost close games to good teams and played a difficult OOC schedule.   With Kalkbrenner healthy, I expect them to show why they were ranked so highly in the preseason.
