Terps Ride Big Offensive Night From Lucas

 

1974 Maryland

95

1970 Florida St.

85

 

Unassociated Press: The 1974 Maryland Terrapins played 37 minutes of up-tempo basketball before slowing the game down during the final three minutes to hold off the 1970 Florida State Seminoles 95-85.  Star guard John Lucas was virtually unstoppable, leading Coach Lefty Driesell’s Terps with 25 points, while narrowly missing a double-double with nine assists.  His three steals led to seven Maryland points.

Florida State stayed within striking distance thanks to strong offensive rebounding, but the Seminoles committed 22 turnovers, 10 of them via steals and never could get within six points in the second half.

Maryland advances to the South Region as the 16-seed and will face top-seed Kentucky 1996 on Thursday.

Rating The Top Teams From One-Bid Conferences

 

As of today, our Bracketology (which will be updated later today) shows that 22 conferences will send just one team to the NCAA Tournament.  There is a chance that Northern Iowa and another chance that a second Southern Conference team could earn at-large bids if they do not win their conference tournaments, but for now, if the season ended today, and the top teams won their conference tournaments, 22 conferences would be one-bid leagues.

Every year some double-digit seeds win games in the second round (round of 64).  In most years, at least one double-digit seed makes the Sweet 16.  Of course, in a lot of these cases, the double-digit seed is a Power Conference school that finished in 4th to 6th place in its conference, but there are also years where a Loyola of Chicago or George Mason make a run after being vastly underrated.

Let’s take a look at the current best team in each of these one-bid conferences.  We are going to show you a spreadsheet of these 22 teams and place check marks by the positive criteria that we believe reveals which of these dark horse teams might be ready to ambush a favored Power Conference team in the second round and vie for a spot in the Sweet 16.

The criteria includes having an Offensive Efficiency Rating above 105, a Defensive Efficiency Rating of 95 or below, an offensive rebounding rate of 30 or above, a defensive rebounding rate of 75 or above, a turnover rate below 17, a defensive turnover rate above 17, having at least 3 seniors that play significant minutes, and having a schedule in which they played at least 5 teams in the top 125 of the NET Ratings.

After rating each of the 22 teams, we break them down into a group of 4 serious threats, 6 possible threats, 6 teams capable of playing good enough to win, and 6 teams that have no chance to win other than in a First Round Play-in Game in Dayton.

 

6 Teams With No Chance

Akron:  The Zips lack the rebounding strength and do not force turnovers to beat a quality team in the NCAAT.  Usually, a MAC Champion has a stronger schedule strength than this team.  With a low R+T Rating, Akron is likely to give up numerous extra scoring opportunities and lose in the Second Round.

Colgate: This Raiders team is one of the weakest potential Patriot League Champions when it comes to competing in the Big Dance.  Colgate has an efficient offense, but little else.  The Raiders will be overwhelmed by more physical opponents from Power Conferences, because they cannot compete on the boards and cannot create extra scoring opportunities with steals and forcing turnovers.  Unless the opponent gets the yips and totally throws up a ton of bricks, this could be a 20-point loss for Colgate.

Hofstra: It’s been 19 years since the Pride went to the Dance.  Joe Mihalich has done a superb job in Hempstead, just like he did at Niagara, but this Hofstra team will have to be satisfied with the Dance ticket if it arrives on Selection Sunday.  Hofstra lacks the criteria to do more than make a 40-minute appearance.   The Pride take care of the ball and are decent at forcing turnovers, but their half-court defense is lacking, and they are likely to be dominated on the glass.  They haven’t played enough Tournament-type teams to gain the confidence and experience to win on the big stage.

Montana: As of today, The Grizzlies would actually be considered the weakest overall team in the NCAAT.  Montana does not qualify in offensive or defensive efficiency, and the Grizzlies have the worst R+T Rating of this group.  They would most likely be a 16-seed but not playing in Dayton and thus would be fodder for a one-seed San Diego State or Kansas.

Prairie View: Of the 6 teams that make up this category, Prairie View has the best criteria and just narrowly misses out on moving up to the next group.  The Panthers narrowly lost a First Round game to Fairleigh-Dickinson last year, and PVAM would most likely return to Dayton this year if they win the SWAC Tournament.  Maybe, this year the Panthers will be favored to win that Play-in game and give a Baylor or Gonzaga a scare until the second TV Timeout.

Robert Morris: The Northeast Conference actually has a member that might be good enough to contend in an opening round game, but Merrimack won’t be eligible for the NCAAT for another few years, due to one of the dumbest rules the NCAA has.  Why would the NCAA punish a team moving up to Division I by making them ineligible for multiple years?  Merrimack is the class of the NEC this year and will probably receive an NIT bid, while Robert Morris, or any other league member, will be a prohibitive underdog in Dayton.  RMU is the only team of this 22-school comparison that comes up a zero in offensive and defensive efficiency plus offensive and defensive rebounding.  If the Colonials were to sneak into the Second Round after winning in Dayton, they would be likely looking at a loss of 30 or more points against a one-seed.

6 Teams Likely to Lose in Second Round But Talented Enough to Compete

Little Rock:  Four years ago, Chris Beard coached Little Rock to an upset over Purdue and then took advantage of his fortunes by taking the Texas Tech job.  Now, former Arkansas star Darrell Walker has the Trojans in line to contend as a double-digit seed this year.  Little Rock has an advantage that none of the teams in the bottom group has–they can create extra scoring opportunities with offensive rebounding and forcing turnovers.  They will still be heavy underdogs as a 13, 14, or 15-seed, but this team could contend for an upset if they matchup is favorable, and the opponent has issues with ball-handling and rebounding.

Norfolk St.: The MEAC Championship Game could be a rematch between Norfolk St. and UNC Central, won by UNC Central last year.  We believe that Norfolk St. has the better criteria for NCAAT purposes, and the Spartans are not a team to overlook.  Robert Jones is one of the best teaching coaches that doesn’t get the appreciation he deserves.  Norfolk’s liability is at the offensive end, where they are not the most efficient team in their own league.  But, they play aggressive attacking defense and can compete by forcing their opponent to become tentative and passive on offense.  If the three-pointers should fall for the Spartans (and they take lots of them), NSU could scare a 1 or 2-seed.  Norfolk State will probably be a 16-seed, but the Spartans are good enough to be a 15.

North Texas: The top 5 teams in CUSA are fairly balanced, so picking the Mean Green to be the representative solely comes from their having the CUSA Tournament in their backyard.  UNT qualifies on experience and schedule strength, which puts the Mean Green in a higher classification with the rest of their criteria.  They possess an above average offense and offensive rebounding ability, so this team will be capable of going on scoring runs.  The one issue is that they have played a half dozen very good teams and competed in every game, but they lost every one of these games.  They are probably looking at a single-digit loss in their opening game.

Siena: There are six MAAC teams that could be considered co-favorites to win the automatic bid, and we selected Siena solely on power ratings and remaining conference schedule.  It could just as easily be Monmouth, Rider, Saint Peter’s, Manhattan, or Quinnipiac.  All six of these MAAC teams are just talented enough to scare a 2 or 3-seed, but scare is probably all they can do.  Siena can rebound the ball and avoid making numerous turnovers, and they have a lot of senior leadership.  Siena’s half-court defense is suspect against a Power Conference opponent, so the Saints will most likely go marching back to Loudonville after one game.

South Dakota St.: T.J. Otzlerberger and Scott Nagy made the Jackrabbits the class of the Summit League and capitalized on their success by taking higher-paying jobs.  SDSU is still in capable hands with first year coach Eric Henderson, who has slighted changed the environment here with a bit more deliberate offense.  The Jackrabbits know how to work the ball in the half-court and score with consistency, taking care of the rock and getting a nice amount of offensive rebounds.  This type of team is always going to be dangerous in the early rounds, especially if the opponent isn’t used to playing defense for 25 seconds per possession.  The Jackrabbits are eventually going to win in the Big Dance, but probably not this year.  They may lose a close game.

Wright St.: Speaking of Nagy, this is where he left South Dakota State and chose to coach.  First, the Raiders must get past Northern Kentucky in the Horizon League Tournament, as the teams have traded championship game victories in recent years.  If WSU tops NKU this year, they will have the same offensive advantages that Nagy’s former school has, but they will also share the same liabilities.  

6 Teams Strong Enough To Win A Second Round Game 

Belmont: The Bruins beat Temple in the Big Dance last year, but this is a different team with a different head coach and different stars.  Belmont has become the Vermont of the Deep South, a school no Power Conference team wants to see in its second round bracket.  The Bruins can shoot the ball and can defend in the half-court.  They take care of the ball and pick up their share of steals.  Their problem is they lack the muscle inside this year, and they are missing some big leaders off last year’s team, including NBA Draft pick Dylan Windler.  Another sticking point with Belmont, they will have to fight off strong bids from Murray State, Austin Peay, and Eastern Kentucky just to get to the Dance.

UC-Irvine: Like Belmont, UCI won their second round game in last year’s NCAA Tournament, but like Belmont, the Anteaters are missing a key piece that led them to that victory in Max Hazzard.  The Anteaters are still built for NCAA Tournament success.  They are the best of the 22 teams listed here in passing the criteria for offensive and defensive efficiency combined with offensive and defensive rebounding.  Plus, they still have upperclass leadership and a decent R+T Rating.  Their biggest issue this year is a probably 15-seed instead of the 13-seed they were last year.

Northern Iowa: The Panthers look like the best Mid-Major team in the nation this year, but UNI has liabilities that keep them in the second group rather than the elite.  They have problems with defensive efficiency, offensive rebounding, and forcing turnovers.  Each one is a mild deficiency, but when you combine these three criteria with the added bonus that their schedule is a bit too weak, you see a slightly overrated team.  They are still talented enough to contend in the second round, and they will likely be given a 12 or 11 seed, which is where most double-digit seeds win, but this team is not built for lasting success in the Big Dance.

Winthrop:  Until this week, Winthrop looked like a decent long shot to surprise a team in the NCAAT.  Now, they must withstand a rematch with Radford just to get into the Field.  The Eagles are one of the few Mid-Major teams that could potentially pound the ball inside against a Power Conference school.  They have four big men that possess strength and quickness to get their share of offensive rebounds and excellent shooting opportunities in the paint.  Defensive lapses have hurt the Eagles, especially this past week, but their R+T Rating is in the very good range, and in a second round game, they could put a big scare in a 3-seed.

Vermont:  Only one criterion stands between the Catamounts being the top team of the 22 in this study and the top team in the second tier, which is where they are.  Vermont lacks the offensive rebounding power to get extra scoring opportunities.  If they were as good on the offensive glass as Winthrop, they might be a near sure thing to make it to the second week of the tournament.  Still, the Catamounts are good enough to win one game in this Tournament, but they will most likely face a third round opponent that can exploit their one Achilles’ Heel and send them back to the Green State.

Yale: Yale is barely the favorite to win the Ivy League Tournament and get the bid this year, and having the tournament at Harvard could be trouble if the Crimson can move up into the top 4.  If the Bulldogs win the automatic bid, they can be second round contenders.  The Bulldogs are a poor man’s Vermont this year.  They don’t have the same experience as Vermont, but they are still strong enough to keep a second round game close enough to steal a victory in the final minutes.

The Top 4 One-Bid Teams–All Strong Enough To Sneak Into The Sweet 16

East Tennessee St.:  The Bucs will face stiff competition in the most underrated league in college basketball.  The Southern Conference has four teams capable of winning NCAA Tournament games.  The league should be given a second team, but unless the conference champion loses a close game in the SoCon Championship, it isn’t going to happen.  In our opinion, the third best team in this league is better than the 8th best team in the Big Ten, but the Committee awards the big dogs at the expense of the little dogs.  ETSU has all the criteria of a school like Virginia Commonwealth, Gonzaga, Saint Mary’s, Butler, and Wichita State in the years these schools first became big time players in the Big Dance.  The Bucs could even win a second round game by double digits.  If their schedule was just a tad stronger, they would be favored over most potential third round opponents.  They should get an 11-seed if they continue to win.  They won at LSU by double digits this year.

Liberty: The Flames pulled a shocking second round upset last year and have a considerably stronger team this year.  Of course, they will not be overlooked this year.  Liberty is quite strong in all but the very important offensive rebounding criterion.  That is what will be the Flames’ downfall, but in the second round, their opponent will likely not have the strength to capitalize on their weakness.

New Mexico St.: It’s no surprise that the Aggies are expected to get to the Dance and compete brilliantly this year, since that is what they have done in seven of the past eight seasons.  Chris Jans rates as our top Mid-Major coach this year, and we expect he will have numerous Power Conference job offers at the end of the season.  NMSU has all the criteria needed to make a surprise deep run in this year’s tournament.  This is a team that lost by one point to Final Four Auburn in last year’s Big Dance, and the Aggies will be ready to seek revenge after watching multiple 50-50 judgment calls go against them last year.  NMSU qualifies on all the essential criteria–passing the mark in offensive and defensive efficiency, offensive rebounding, and forcing turnovers.  Their limited liabilities come in offensive turnovers and strength of schedule.  With a very strong R+T Rating, this team is talented enough to chalk up a second round win and then contend for a Sweet 16 bid.

Stephen F. Austin: Here is one criterion that we have not mentioned before, but when we say it, you will know right away that SF Austin is good enough to make it past the first weekend in this tournament:  They beat Duke at Cameron Indoor Stadium in a game where the officials gave the Blue Devils as much preferential treatment as the 1972 Olympic referees gave the USSR team.  The Lumberjacks are currently the best Mid-Major team when applying the PiRate Rating Big Dance criteria.  They have an excellent offensive and very good defensive efficiency.  They have a large offensive rebounding advantage over most of the other teams that could be in this field.  They have considerable junior and senior leadership, and they have confidence.  If you can win at Duke when the calls go in the Blue Devils’ favor, you can beat anybody in this field.

Captain’s Musings

 

Where the NCAA Selection Committee Gets It Wrong

The NCAA Men’s Basketball Selection Committee has issued its first preliminary seeding of top 16 teams, and we at the PiRate Ratings are happy to say we predicted all 16 teams on the correct seed line.  Predicting seed lines and teams accepted to the Big Dance isn’t all that difficult, because the NCAA clearly shows its cards.  With the exception of Team 68 and occasionally Team 67, determining in advance which 68 teams receive Dance Invitations is almost as exact as multiplication and division.

Usually, when our Bracketology, or our friends on the Internet that supply their own Bracketology, are finalized on Selection Sunday, the only differences in the brackets come on the lower seed lines.  Many times, predictions for a seed line were accurate, but the Committee had to move a team up or down one seed in order to obey the NCAA’s rules about facing an opponent from the same conference in the opening rounds.

Basically, the process is done correctly every time, and when Team number 69 is left out, no matter who that team is, the folks at CBS and ESPN immediately cross-examine the Committee Chairman as if a major slight has taken place.  That is done strictly to get the public to keep watching their Selection Sunday special show, because face it, the public could just as easily wait 30 minutes and quickly see the entire field in the bracket on their computer or phone.

We have no issues with the Selection Committee every year.  They do a great job, and it isn’t easy to get a dozen highly opinionated people to agree on whether Teams 67, 68, 69, and 70 deserve to be in or left out.  The consensus usually is right.

Our problem hangs entirely on the process itself, and we have one major complaint that we believe needs to move high up on the priority line.  That statistic is where a team finishes in its own conference.

Why continue to even have conference play if a team that finishes in third place sweeps the 7th place team and then watches the 7th place team get an NCAA bid, while they have to go to the NIT.  Do you think this doesn’t happen?  Unfortunately, this, or something similar, happens almost every year.

Take a look at South Carolina last year.  The Gamecocks handily beat Florida in Gainesville, and they wiped Ole Miss off the floor.  They split with Mississippi St.  All told, USC finished a game ahead of the two Magnolia State teams and two games ahead of Florida.  Yet, they were the team left out of the NCAA Tournament, while the three teams below them in the standings all went to the Big Dance.

What good is having a conference race at all, if it means absolutely nothing, other than that the regular season champion is guaranteed a spot in the NIT if it fails to make the NCAA Tournament?

If we were named the Commissioner of College Basketball, there would be changes made.  First, we would flip the rules on automatic NCAA Tournament bids.  We’d award an automatic NCAA Tournament bid to the regular season champion of each conference and then guarantee an NIT bid to all Conference Tournament winners that did not receive an NCAA Tournament bid.

Let’s look at a possibility that would make this rule show how much better the tournament might be flipping the automatic bids.  Look at this year’s Southland Conference.  Stephen F. Austin is talented enough and well-coached enough to challenge for a Sweet 16 appearance if not more.  The Lumberjacks won at Duke in one of those games where the zebras tried their hardest to give the big team the win.  SFA players were whistled for fouls just for occupying the same city block in Durham, while Duke players had to commit felonious assault before they were whistled for fouls.  Still, SFA won the game, and had this game been played with totally unbiased officials, the Lumberjacks would have actually blown Duke off the Cameron Indoor Stadium floor.

SFA (12-1/21-3) is three games ahead of its nearest conference foe.  They are likely to enter the Southland Conference Tournament at 28-3 and no worse than 27-4.  And, for this incredible run, the Lumberjacks will be guaranteed only an NIT bid.  They will have to win the SLC Tournament to get into the Field of 68.  What if a team like Nicholls State catches SFA on a cold shooting day and upsets the Lumberjacks?  Nicholls will go bye bye in the opening game, while SFA will probably be forced to play a road NIT game and receive the same type of home-cooking officiating that they faced in Durham.

Under our system, The Lumberjacks would still go to the NCAA Tournament, while Nicholls State would be guaranteed that NIT bid or be allowed to accept the CIT bid if they preferred.  The Colonels might finish four games in back of SFA, and after a 20-game conference schedule, when one team finishes 19-1 in the league and the second best team goes 15-5, it is quite clear which team is better and more deserving of the NCAA bid.

The same holds true in the Power Conferences.  Let’s look at the crazy Big Ten race this year.  Currently, three teams, Ohio State, Indiana, and Michigan, are tied for 12th place at 5-7 in the conference.  Minnesota is a half-game ahead of the trio at 6-7.  However, if you look at the criteria used by the NCAA Selection Committee, Minnesota is barely on the bad side of the Bubble and looking at the NIT, while the other three teams are in the Field.  The Big Ten plays a 20-game conference schedule, so if any number of these four teams get in the Field, the preference should be to take the team(s) that finish higher in the standings.  20 games are enough to determine which teams are better than which teams.  Using advanced metrics is great, and we are devoted Sabermetric devotees, but we realize that actual results trump theoretical results.

 

The 2020 R+T Rating Revision

Recently, we were asked to explain how our power ratings are computed, and we gave a detailed explanation of how we rely on the “Four Factors” of basketball and then apply weightings to each of the four offensive and four defensive factors and then adjust the data based on strength of schedule and a constant (that changes a little every year).  What we basically end up with is something similar to baseball’s weighted on-base average and WAR, where instead of estimating how many wins the players on a baseball team are worth, we estimate how many points better or worse than average each team is worth.

In that explanation, we relied heavily on something that has been obvious in Major League Baseball through the “Moneyball” years.  As Oakland Athletics’ General Manager Billy Beane has so succinctly said in the past, “My stuff doesn’t work in the playoffs.”  He didn’t use the word “stuff” but the PiRates refrain from using foul language.

What Beane said was proven to be correct over and over again.  The analytics that show a team how to win 90+ games don’t apply to winning in the playoffs, and there is a reason for this.  Let’s use last year’s Tampa Bay Rays as an example.

The Rays finished 96-66 and made the playoffs.  Tampa Bay played Baltimore and Toronto 19 times each.  They played Kansas City and the LA Angels seven times and Detroit and Seattle six times.   Even against good teams like the Yankees, Twins, Indians, Astros, and Athletics, they faced those teams’ number four and number five starting pitchers between one third and 40% of the time.

In the playoffs, the Yankees are not going to use their number four and number five pitchers, except in mop up duty.  In a seven game series, they might send their number one ace out there to start games 1, 4, and 7, if he can pitch on three days rest.

Moneyball statistics and all the evolved improved statistics are meant to be used over the course of an entire season’s worth of games.  After 100 games played, the strategies of going for big innings and limiting strategies like sacrifice bunting, hit and run, stolen bases, and hitting to the right side of the infield prove to be less efficient and successful in scoring runs on the whole and even winning games.  Small ball doesn’t work when almost every team now plays in a “band box” ballpark.

However, in the playoffs, when a team is facing the opposing ace or number two pitcher, and when they face the top relievers earlier in the games at the highest leverage, attempting to draw walks and hit three-run homers isn’t going to pop those cheap champagne bottles in the clubhouse.  When Justin Verlander takes the bump in October, you beat him by scratching out a couple runs here and there and hoping your pitching staff can hold the Astros in check for a 3-2 or 2-1 victory.  If you expect to put a crooked number on the scoreboard in the 6 or 7 innings he’s on the hill, you stand a big chance of putting up a run of goose eggs.

The same theory holds true in college basketball.  Over the course of a season, shooting the ball and preventing the other team from shooting the ball is going to determine the winner more times than not.  A team that can get to the foul line and hit 75% of their foul shots to win might go 13-5 in their conference and 24-7 overall.  They might get a fat #4 seed and then promptly lose to the #13 seed from a Mid-Major conference.  And, when you look at that Mid-Major team, they weren’t great shooters, but they could clean the glass better than Windex.

At tournament time, unless your team is playing a 20-loss patsy that got hot and won their post-season tournament, or your team has a number one seed and faces a 16-seed that is far outclassed, your team better be able to rebound the ball and avoid turnovers.

Thus, through the years of the 64 to 68-team NCAA Tournaments, basketball’s “Moneyball” system of trying to win the shooting wars for six or seven games just doesn’t work like it does in the regular season, when a team might win four out of every five games all year to record a 28-7 record.  The only record that matters after the Ides of March is 6-0 or 7-0.

How does a team go 6-0 or 7-0 in the NCAA Tournament?  In almost every case, said team is incredibly proficient in getting extra scoring opportunities.  How does a team get extra scoring opportunities?  They grab more rebounds on the offensive end and prevent the other team from doing the same. They force more turnovers on the opponent than they commit, and they capitalize on steals for easier scoring opportunities.  A steal is much more valuable than any other turnover, because more points per possession are scored following a steal than any other situation.

Thus, for many years, we tried to simulate how many potential extra points a team might experience through superior rebounding and protecting the ball.  We created our R+T Rating and used this formula with great success to predict which teams might advance to the later rounds of the tournament, the Final Four, and the Championship.

In many of the seasons, if the top R+T Rating belonged to a Power Conference team, we made them our favorite to win all the marbles, and we were rewarded multiple times.  We even picked a couple of upset dark horses along the way like Wichita State, Virginia Commonwealth, and Butler to make it to the Final Four.  We even isolated on Connecticut to make a run in the year where they broke all the criteria and won the Championship from way back in the pack.

In this time of advanced statistics, we have been trying to improve upon our R+T Rating with a new calculation, one that relies of rate stats over counting stats.  Rebound and turnover margin and steals per game have done well for us for two decades, but we realize there is a difference between rebounding margins.  If a team wins the rebounding battle 33-28, they have done much better than a team that wins the rebounding battle 43-37.  The R+T shows that the 43-37 result is better than the 33-28 result, but that is incorrect.  The 33-28 team retrieved better than 54% of the missed shots, while the 43-37 team only retrieved 53.8%.  Additionally, because offensive rebounding is so much more difficult than defensive rebounding, we really cannot tell which team did a better job.  What if the team that had 37 rebounds from among the four listed above happened to shoot a very low percentage in their game against the team that had 43 rebounds?  What if from the 80 rebounding opportunities in their game, 48 were at their offensive end of the floor and just 32 were at their defensive end of the floor?  What if this team had 14 offensive rebounds on the 48 rebounding opportunities at their offensive end and 23 rebounds from the 32.  By using the Rebounding Rate of the Four Factors, the team that lost the rebounding battle 43-37 actually performed a little better than the team that got the 43 rebounds by the count of 29.2% to 28.1%.

Thus, we are working on a new R+T Rate.  We have been trying to work out a linear regression line with six variables and a constant, and our friends, that is really hard to do, since it involves changing weights and constants over and over until the results are tighter and tighter to the line.  After a couple months, the line is getting there.  We have settled on the handicapping of each component of the stat and only have to deal with a constant that gives us the best back-tested accuracy.  We hope to debut the new R+T Rate just before the NCAA Tournament commences in Dayton.
